Atlanta Business Chronicle

Reporter — Economic Development
Atlanta Business Chronicle is looking for a reporter to cover economic development in one of the hottest economies in the country. This beat focuses on development, transportation, workforce, and all of the issues that make it easier or harder to do business in the region. This reporter might break news of a new development planned for the BeltLine one day, a corporate relocation from out of state the next, and plans for a transportation bond issue the next. Source relationships with developers, elected officials, government staffers, economic development leaders, real estate pros and economists are critical. 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.
