St. Louis Business Journal

The St. Louis Business Journal seeks a reporter for an economic development beat focused on workforce and money in a metropolitan area of nearly 3 million people. This beat will touch every industry, but with particular emphasis on banking, workforce training issues/initiatives, and industries with critical workforce needs such as health care, retail, restaurants and manufacturing. It will also explore issues at the core of St. Louis' biggest challenges, including equitable distribution of capital and jobs, attracting and retaining talent and population growth. This is the essence of top-level reporting. It requires building — and working — strong source networks, to uncover deals and trends before anyone else, and to grasp the broad impact of new issues, new employers and new players.
