Birmingham Business Journal seeks health and tech reporter
The Birmingham Business Journal is seeking a reporter to cover Birmingham’s huge health care community and its ever-growing technology and innovation scene.
The ideal candidate will marry strong traditional journalism skills – source building, sharp interviewing techniques, strong analytical and investigative reporting skills, clear writing, document use – with online and social media know-how. Whatever the platform, reporters will produce content that is accompanied by perspective and context.
A BBJ reporter is expected to contribute both short-form and long-form stories to our news products. Scoops matter. A lot. Specifically reporters will be expected to own their beat audience and conversation; use networking events, Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn and other community-building outlets to expand and fortify their source pool and audience; work collaboratively with other newsroom staffers to maximize impact and accessibility of stories reported; and meet or exceed goals related to audience engagement.
