You will:

  • Monitor the energy industry and related action by the White House, administration agencies and Congress.

You have:

  • A keen understanding of energy policy and challenges faced by the industry.
  • A knowledge of the key players in Washington.
  • Experience reporting and writing fast-paced, breaking news, as well as the ability to land scoops.
