The American agricultural industry contributes $1 trillion to our GDP, but remains relatively under-reported and under-covered as a business.
The New York Times is looking for an enterprising, aggressive reporter to take on this beat and examine the companies, people, policies, issues and trends that shape farming today and the industries and communities with which it’s interconnected.
This reporter must be able to:
-Develop a wide network of sources within agriculture companies and industry
-Spot and execute a range of stories, from breaking news to enterprise and investigative stories
-Write with clarity and color and context
-Write with the interests of general readers in mind
-Collaborate with other Times reporters
-Be a self starter
This job will be located in the Midwest.
