Journalism. We believe it should help you live a better life.

That’s why we spend a lot less time on publishing mug shots and a lot more time helping you understand the employment market, figure out how to spend more time with friends and family with our events calendar, and what you can do to help businesses that have opened up. Make no mistake…we aren’t shy. We tackle the big stuff, like COVID and issues around race.

And if you believe in the value of journalism — that it should help, not exploit — please consider becoming a paid member of the Racine County Eye today. We can’t do this work without you.

The Racine County Eye news website is seeking an advertising sales representative to help grow the reach and depth of the site’s connections throughout the community.

A passion for locally owned businesses is required and a healthy dose of news nerdiness wouldn’t hurt.

Basic job duties include professionally and enthusiastically representing the website when interacting with advertisers and potential supporters; accurately relaying information about the website and advertising rates; following a short list of expectations for meetings per week, follow-up appointments, and weekly check-ins with editors/co-owners on leads both given and developed.

Pay for the position depends on success; we are paying commission only – for now – but hope the chosen candidate does such a great job and we grow to the point that the position becomes a salary plus commission. The chosen candidate will be expected to keep track of mileage and any related expenses for their tax records.

Interested candidates should forward a cover letter and resume to: racinecountyeye@gmail.com
