MiBiz has an immediate opening for an entry-level business reporter who has an inherent curiosity about business and an interest in West Michigan. We are accepting resumes from working journalists with 1-2 years experience as well as from recent college graduates with degrees in journalism or business.
We ascribe to a journalism model that values teaching and mentoring reporters to provide them the foundational business skills needed to excel in their beats and to deliver content that matters to our executive readers. The locally owned MiBiz publishes a biweekly business-to-business print publication that’s read by 30,000 C-suite executives, business owners and managers in West Michigan and around the state. The publication and its digital products are the go-to sources in the region for business news and intelligence.
We offer a collaborative downtown work environment, competitive pay and benefits, flexibility, training and the tools you’ll need to succeed. Former staff writers have gone on to work in business journalism in major markets around the country as well as positions in corporate communications.
Bottom line: We want a reporter who’s willing to work hard, who aspires to be a national-level journalist someday and who’s curious about business.
Gather no more than three writing samples, a resume and a cover letter that presents the case for why you’re the reporter we should hire and send them to Managing Editor Joe Boomgaard at email@example.com.
