Silicon Valley Business Journal is looking for an ambitious and tenacious reporter to cover economic development in one of the nation’s most dynamic business markets. The economic development beat is the essence of Business Journal reporting. It requires building — and working — strong source networks to break big news, dig out trends and connect dots before anyone else does. The beat involves covering the intersection of business and public policy. The ideal candidate will be able to report and write authoritatively about the issues in that sphere that matter most to Silicon Valley companies, entrepreneurs and the employees they're trying to attract and retain. These include housing; traffic and transportation; public health; government investment, regulations and business incentives; civic improvement projects; and higher education.
