The Kansas City Star is looking to hire a business reporter to work as part of its award-winning news staff.
This beat will include coverage of economic growth spurred by commercial, retail and residential development and company startups, particularly in the city’s blooming technology sectors.
But the main focus will be on people with jobs or those who want jobs as they grapple with globalization, income disparity, technology and downsizing.
Paychecks fuel spending, which, in turn, fuels the city’s growth and health. Jobs determine whether a population rises or falls.
Questions to consider: Which jobs are growing? Is there enough local talent to fill them? Which jobs are dying? Is there something else for those people to do? What companies are prospering? Which aren’t? How have some reinvented themselves?
