Jacksonville Biz Journal seeks biz reporter
The Jacksonville Business Journal is seeking a reporter able to marry strong traditional journalism skills – source building, sharp interviewing techniques, strong analytical reporting skills, clear writing, public document use – with online and social media know-how.
Whatever the platform, reporters will produce content – original and aggregated – that is accompanied by perspective and context. The reporting beat available is Logistics/Transportation, Manufacturing and Military – all three are major industries in Northeast Florida. You will join a veteran staff well acquainted with Northeast Florida and its business and civic leaders.
A Business Journals reporter is expected to contribute both short-form (daily online posts) and long-form (print) stories to our news products. Scoops matter. A lot.
Specifically reporters will be 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.
Applicants please send a cover letter with resume, references and 6 examples of your best work to: John Burr, editor-in-chief at firstname.lastname@example.org.
