Wisconsin Journal-Sentinel reporters are now asking their readers for help with their online job applications.
The online hiring process, which has not been available to the public, allows the paper to weed through thousands of applications, many of which require more information than the paper can provide in person.
The Journal Sentinel says that as a result, its hiring efforts have increased dramatically in recent months, and the newspaper says it has added more than 40 positions to its workforce.
The job postings were first reported by the Associated Press.
For example, the paper says it’s hiring a new news editor, a senior editor, an associate editor, and a freelance reporter, and it’s looking for a new executive editor and a senior news editor.
The paper is also hiring a digital reporter and a digital copy editor.
