North Carolina paper seeks business reporter
The Citizen-Times in Asheville, N.C., part of the USA Today Network, is looking for a top-notch journalist to dig into our economy.
This is more than a business beat. The right candidate will be able to spot trends, connect dots and tell bigger stories about how the economic engines of this region is changing by the year.
As Asheville and Appalachia finds itself in transition between an economy based on manufacturing to one based on tourism, how does that affect lives? How will economic winds change this beautiful mountain city? Your enterprise stories will be a mix of compelling personal stories and strong work with data answering those questions and more. And two days won’t look alike, as you report on entrepreneurs and big business, tourism and tech.
The beat will rely on a combination of these thoughtful stories, peppered through with smaller blips on business comings and goings. While we’re looking for an excellent reporter and writer, your ability to handle a camera in a pinch and shoot video is a big plus — we admire versatility.
Asheville is a vibrant community in the heart of the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains, and is home to some of the nation’s best mountain biking, hiking and kayaking. It’s also known as a top restaurant destination and boasts more than two dozen craft breweries and a vibrant arts community.
