Dallas Business Journal seeks banking reporter

November 12, 2013

Posted by Chris Roush

Energetic, enthusiastic staff writer wanted to join the newly redesigned Dallas Business Journal, the premier chronicler of the Lone Star city that means business.

We’re looking for a full-time reporter to expand our team and own the fast-paced banking and finance beats in North Texas, as well as tackle a range of developing general assignment stories. Only candidates who hunger to break news, own their beat and craft meaningful, high-profile enterprise articles need apply.

The ideal candidate is someone who can marry strong traditional journalism skills – source building, sharp interviewing techniques, strong analytical and investigative reporting skills, clear writing, document use – with a digital-first mindset and social media know-how.

A DBJ reporter is expected to contribute both short-form (daily online posts) and long-form (print) stories to our news products. Scoops matter. A lot. Reporters are expected to own their beat audience and conversation; use networking events, Twitter, LinkedIn and other community-building outlets to expand and fortify their source pool 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.

The Dallas Business Journal is an American City Business Journals publication with offices in Dallas’ dynamic Uptown neighborhood. We offer a competitive salary and comprehensive benefits package.
