Silicon Valley Biz Journal seeks economic development reporter
The Silicon Valley Business Journal is seeking an economic development writer to cover the intersection of companies, culture and politics. We’re looking to dominate coverage of housing, transportation, urban planning, and workforce issues. We also want to break news on waste, fraud and abuse at companies and in government.
Our reporters must marry strong traditional journalism skills – source building, sharp interviewing techniques, strong analytical and investigative reporting skills, clear writing, document use – with online and social media know-how. They are expected to contribute both short-form (daily online posts) and long-form (print) stories to our news products. Scoops matter. A lot.
To this end, reporters are expected to break important hard news online and use print and video to tell the story behind the headlines, providing deeper analysis of newsworthy events. Whatever the platform, we strive to produce content – original and curated – that is accompanied by perspective and context. A Business Journal reporter is widely recognized as the community’s foremost authority on their assigned beat.
