The Associated Press is looking for a reporter to cover the economy out of its Washington bureau, says Brad Foss, an assistant business editor.

This position has a broad mandate: explaining the economy to readers in daily coverage of government and industry reports, and through enterprise stories. The successful candidate must be an aggressive reporter and critical thinker; someone who can cultivate sources, identify economic trends and write authoritative stories with flair and clarity.                                                       

Applicants must have a proven knowledge of business and economics and a talent for writing clear and compelling stories with rigorous, thought-provoking analysis.

They must also be highly organized, with the ability to multitask, prioritize and focus on detail and accuracy in a fast-paced environment.  The right candidate will be a self-starter and team player. Effective interpersonal skills and solid news judgment are critical. At least three years of experience in business or economics writing is required. The ideal candidate should have a bachelor’s degree or equivalent-level experience.
