Ad Age seeks reporter
Advertising Age is seeking a smart, aggressive journalist to help us cover the rise of mobile technology and its effect on marketing, media and consumer behavior.
This beat is hugely important and influential. It deals with one of the biggest challenges marketers face: how to design products and marketing to be relevant in a world where everyone has a computer in their pocket and instant gratification—or distraction—is just a few swipes away. This person would also own coverage of one of the hottest ad categories, with some of the most innovative marketing as big-spending carriers and device manufacturers fight for share. And it’s a topic that’s increasingly global. Consider that there are nearly 500 million people connected to the mobile web in China.
Ad Age covers the industry by following the money and the ideas. Can you sniff out smart stories in a competitive space? Are you able to explain complex issues clearly and concisely, to craft compelling personality-driven features as well as quick hits for the web? Are you passionate about technology and digging into numbers? Do you possess a healthy dose of skepticism and the ability to persevere, even in the face of a difficult story? If the answer is yes, we’d like to hear from you.
The ideal candidate should submit a resume and several clips that illustrate a track record of breaking news, smart news analysis and solid judgment. Ad Age is a fast-paced, deadline-oriented organization and we’re looking for journalists who can thrive in it.
