Description:

We’re looking for a reporter who can help us dig out the important stories behind some of the most interesting industries on Florida’s First Coast.

Among other things, the beat includes covering the area’s growing brewing and distilling industries, a zoo and museums with big expansion plans, a burgeoning restaurant scene and more.

While the topics are fun and your writing needs to be top-notch, this isn’t a features position: We need someone who can break news, is great at sourcing and is as comfortable with numbers as they are with words.

JBJ reporters have gone on to jobs elsewhere in American City Business Journals as well as at places like American Banker, the Journal of Commerce and other top-notch newspapers. 

If you have the enthusiasm, drive and talent to do that level of work, send an email explaining why you're the person for the job to tgibbons@bizjournals.com. Include your resume, your best clips and a few sentences laying out two stories you’d like to cover.
