The State Journal-Register seeks a reporter to cover Springfield's local business community and economic trends. The ideal candidate will be a versatile journalist who can produce stories that range from quick-hit mini-profiles and comings/goings coverage to more in-depth analysis on economic trends affecting central Illinois and the state -- and how those trends affect readers. He/she must be adept at building a strong source base and breaking news about what's happening, but also at being able to mine data, spot trends and hold those in power accountable. This reporter must be a self-starter and comfortable with using various platforms — video, podcasting, alternative story forms — to tell stories. Business coverage is a high-profile priority for the State Journal-Register, and the reporter also will play a role in discovering/selecting wire content that is relevant to our audience and not just a space-filler.
Interested candidates should send a resume; no more than six work samples; and a cover letter to Executive Editor Angie Muhs, firstname.lastname@example.org. The SJR/GateHouse Media is an Equal Opportunity Employer.
