Job Overview

The San Antonio Business Journal, a thriving and growing news organization in the country's seventh-largest city, is looking for a full-time reporter to help cover the region's dynamic and rapidly changing business community.

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 break hard news while also prioritizing investigative and enterprise reporting that delivers the data and deeper context our readers crave.

Job Responsibilities

  • Contribute in-depth, timely and relevant daily news stories to be used across platforms.
  • Report and write short-form and long-form stories for the website and weekly print edition.
  • Reports and writes 1-3 digital stories daily, at least one of which is enterprise-driven and exclusive to the Business Journal.
  • Curates a Reporter Page for the weekly edition that demonstrates to readers a mastery of the beat.
  • Scoops competitors on every story of importance to the Business Journal audience, telling readers not only what happened, but why and how.
  • Builds, develops and maintains a network of important and relevant sources from all areas of the beat, ensuring the network is wide, deep and includes the most important voices from that industry.
  • Studies the metrics to determine what readers are interested in and adjusts coverage accordingly.
  • Attend both San Antonio Business Journal and industry-related events.
  • Reporters will be expected to facilitate/moderate at Business Journal events and must be comfortable in taking a leading role in the community.
  • Meet or exceed goals relating to audience-engagement such as page views, unique users, repeat visits, direct traffic, social media followings and growth, paid print subscribership, email newsletter circulation growth, event attendance, and other such measures.

Skills & Experience

Skills

  • Bachelor's degree or equivalent work experience
  • Desire and ability to break news and to identify newsworthy events and sources
  • Strong analytical and investigative-interviewing skills
  • Ability to work both independently and collaboratively
  • Ability to relate comfortably to a wide range of people, in person, on the phone and online
  • A clear drive to develop sources and build audience
  • Solid understanding of news writing, journalistic ethics and story structure.
  • Ability to leverage relationships with sources to deliver content that differentiates the organization from competitors.
