Description:

The Portland Business Journal is looking for an energetic reporter to cover the high stakes commercial real estate beat. 

Downtown office vacancies are at a record high, landlords are defaulting on loans, there is a shortage of affordable housing and financing for new projects is difficult to secure. The list of potential stories is long.

The Business Journal’s CRE reporter must be competitive, nimble and driven to break news derived from deep sourcing, public records and data. Being out in the community, meeting with sources, attending events, scoping out new developments is a must.

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.

The CRE reporter will work in a collaborative newsroom filled with reporters and editors who are passionate about Portland and who keep readers informed with a mix of daily stories and longer-form pieces.
