Pacific Business News

Reporter - Banking, Finance and Energy
PBN seeks a reporter to cover Hawaii’s banking, finance and economic news for its audience of business owners and executives. This reporter will also cover the rapidly evolving energy sector as part of our Inno beat, which pulls together business intelligence on startups and innovative companies in tech, energy and food independence, critical areas of innovation for Hawaii. 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.
