As the managing editor at San Antonio Express-News, Jamie Stockwell knows exactly what she is looking for when hiring a news reporter at the publication.
Though the publication still has a focus on print journalism with their daily newspaper and book releases throughout the year, “the emphasis is on digital first and print second,” according to Stockwell.
“Reporters must come with immense video skills, social media skills, and audio recording skills. Most importantly, to be able to visualize data,” Stockwell said.
Though these skills are important during the hiring process, Stockwell explained how if the potential new hire seems to be curious and has an urge to experiment then it may be a fit.
