St. Louis Biz Journal seeks a real estate reporter
St. Louis Business Journal is looking for a reporter who can marry strong traditional journalism skills – source building, sharp news judgment, interviewing prowess, strong analytical and investigative reporting, clear writing, 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 St. Louis.
Specifically, this reporter will cover commercial real estate and the business of sports, which includes everything from scoops about new construction, property sales and Ballpark Village development to savvy, important coverage of the executives, companies and characters who make up the industries. (We usually have baseball in October.)
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, a cover letter and a resume to editor Joe Dwyer at firstname.lastname@example.org.
