The Casper Star-Tribune, the newspaper of record for Wyoming, seeks a visual journalist to document the people, issues, and wide open spaces of our state.

Adventurous souls take note: There are few wild places left in the United States. And they are here. Don't be surprised if your first months on the job find you standing on an oil rig, exploring a mountain range, and ringside at a rodeo.

Our focus is on traditional still photojournalism. It's what our readers want, both in print and online, and if you're reading this it's your passion as well. On the print side, strong photography is rewarded with strong design. Online, our audience responds well to photo galleries and our use of social media, and the successful candidate must be willing to take point on both.

The ideal candidate will have a bachelor's degree and 1-3 years of daily newspaper experience, but recent graduates with strong portfolios and internships under their belts will be considered.

Communications Director
Voqal

Job submitted on 01/11/2013

Background Information

Voqal is a new brand recently developed by five non-profit organizations that got their start in the mid-1980s transmitting educational video programs to schools. But times have changed. Today, these organizations provide an array of telecommunications services (including mobile broadband) to schools and nonprofits nationwide; give away millions of dollars per year to charitable programs centered on social equality; and participate in other entrepreneurial endeavors using their spectrum expertise. To give one example, they are currently seeking to finance the purchase of financially troubled public TV stations. Though they are separate organizations, the five non-profits do a lot in common. In 2008, they formed a service organization to help unite their sprawling enterprises under one roof and management team. This organization is known as EBS Support Services, LLC. Even as management grew more coherent, the increasing complexity of the work has made it harder to explain concisely what we do. Hence the five non-profits approved a branding effort that will bring their programs, services, initiatives, and subsidiaries under one umbrella brand: Voqal. They plan to roll out the Voqal brand in March, 2013.

Job Purpose:

Reporting to the President, the Communications Director will set and guide the strategy for all Voqal communications, website, and public relations messages and collateral to articulate Voqal's mission in a consistent manner.

The Communications Director will work closely with a senior peer group within the organization and serve as a resource to those leading the various strategic initiatives.

Responsibilities:

Designs, develops and implements communications and public relations programs.
Manages and coordinates media relations and external communications.
Creates awareness of the Voqal brand and Voqal activities.
Serves as the overall guardian of Voqal's brand; enforces the Voqal brand management protocol.
Leads the generation of Voqal.org content that engages constituencies.
Manages the development, distribution, and maintenance of all print and electronic collateral including, but not limited to, newsletters, brochures and the Voqal.org website.

Defines metrics for all communications initiatives; track and report on metrics; analyze metrics for improvement and experimentation.
Develops and implements coordinated and creative multi-platform strategies that harness online/digital, media relations, and marketing capabilities that multiply the impact of Voqal, as well as engage and build audiences in line with the non-profits' strategic plans.
Other duties as assigned.

Qualifications:
