Denver Business Journal seeks a real estate reporter
The Denver Business Journal is looking for a reporter with strong traditional journalism skills – source building, sharp news judgment, interviewing prowess, strong analytical and investigative reporting, clear writing, and document use – with online and social media know-how.
Whatever the platform, this reporter will produce content that is accompanied by perspective and context for a vibrant audience of business owners, executives and professionals in the Denver metro area.
This position’s main responsibility is covering commercial real estate and housing issues in Denver and its suburbs, one of the fastest growing regions in the U.S. This beat has historically generated the most online story traffic and conversions to print subscriptions.
Stories range from deal coverage to housing trends, affordable housing issues, growth and development, and profiles of key players in this vibrant real estate market. It’s a mix of breaking news and trend stories in print and online.
A Business journal reporter is competitive, collaborative and curious. He or she is expected to contribute both short- and long-form stories to our news products online, in email, on mobile and in print.
Specifically, reporters are expected to own every important story on their beat(s); use networking events, social media platforms and other community-building outlets to expand and fortify their source base 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. Also, scoops matter. A lot.
To apply, send clips, resume and a cover letter to Beth Hunt, director of editorial recruitment and development, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
