Description:

The Houston Business Journal, a thriving and growing news organization, is looking for a full-time reporter to cover the money and sports business beat, covering some of the city's most dynamic industries.

Our reporters must be competitive, nimble and driven to break news about the most important industries, companies and people in the region. They are expected to provide forward-looking business intelligence to savvy readers who will use it to grow their businesses and/or advance their careers. Our content gives them a leg up on their competitors, connects them with decision-makers and delineates growth strategies that work from those that don't. This usually entails working our source networks and digging up news before it's announced or readily available.

The ideal candidate will blend traditional journalism skills - source building, sharp news judgment, interviewing prowess and scoop-driven reporting - with online and social media know-how. Reporters in our newsroom don't just turn in copy. They include videos, slideshows and other multimedia components that advance the story and further engage our audience. They break hard news that sometimes sources don't want brought to light, but they don't burn bridges.
