Providence Business News seeks special projects editor
Providence Business News, Southern New England’s leading business publication, is looking for an enterprising, energetic reporter/editor to help cover one of the nation’s most diverse business communities.
This position combines the challenge of mastering beat coverage, in this case of the health care industry in the region, with the satisfaction gained from shepherding PBN’s special publications, from assigning to editing through production. The skill sets required are varied and the expectations high, but this job is a key component of PBN’s success, something we are recognized for on a regular basis regionally and nationally.
PBN breaks news, but we also give the business community a smart take on what is happening. The special projects editor will function as both a web reporter and a print journalist (like all our beat reporters) when not editing. And they will help as needed update our WordPress-based website. All this activity allows us to inform our readers through multiple channels, from a weekly print edition, digital reporting, regular community-based panel discussions and other emerging technologies.
We would prefer a business reporting background, but it is more important to demonstrate an interest in learning and a talent for clear and precise communication.
PBN is locally owned, meaning we care about this community; it is where we live.
