Orange County Biz Journal seeks marketing/retail reporter
The Orange County Business Journal, a truly anomalous print publication whose financial performance today surpasses the dot-com boom peak of 2000, seeks a reporter.
We are part of one of the top three groups of local business publications in the country. Our editorial department is highly accomplished, earning the respect of the major corporate and community players.
The Business Journal seeks an experienced business reporter who enterprises stories, cultivates relationships, writes for a business audience and has a demonstrated track record of making deadlines. The full-time position is responsible for several sectors including apparel, retail, marketing, and autos. The desk is responsible for a weekly marketing column, in addition to breaking stories and features.
Our coverage area includes a roster of top consumer brands that are based in Orange County – Vizio and Blizzard Entertainment, North American operations of Hyundai, Kia and Mazda, Taco Bell and In-N-Out Burgers, along with numerous apparel, cosmetics, and other consumer brands. Orange County is home to renowned luxury-shopping mall South Coast Plaza, the highest-grossing shopping center in the U.S. ($1.7B); the largest and most successful real-estate development company, The Irvine Company; and an emerging ecosystem of start-up and growth-stage companies.
A sophisticated understanding of business – including a working knowledge of financial statements and the ability to tell readers what they mean – is a must.
The Orange County Business Journal’s refined understanding and coverage of our local community of business have been ongoing for more than 30 years. Our editorial excellence has put us in a position to grow while other media shrink.
The right candidate will have a chance to grow with us, with possibilities beyond.
