Orlando Business Journal seeks reporter
The Orlando Business Journal is seeking a reporter who can marry strong traditional journalism skills — source building, sharp news judgment, interviewing prowess, strong analytical and investigative reporting, clear writing, document use — with online and social media know-how.
Whatever the platform, this reporter will produce content that is accompanied by perspective and context for our fast-growing audience of business owners, executives and professionals in the Central Florida economy.
A Business Journal 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.
Skills that we’re looking for include a proven ability in reporting and writing; ability to work independently and remotely; ability to break news and to identify newsworthy events and sources; strong analytical and investigative-interviewing skills; ability to relate comfortably to a wide range of people, in person and online, and to develop sources and audience.
