Maybe you've noticed lately that business news is important. Perhaps you're thinking to yourself, "I know I don't know much about subprime loans, but apparently neither did the folks making them." Maybe you went into journalism to cover the stuff that really matters to people. You thought that would be politics -- but, really, it all comes down to money. If the last couple of years haven't proven that to you, we're not sure what could. So here's a choice: go to a general interest newspaper and sit around covering inland wetlands commission meetings and the local second grade Cub Scouts outing, or work for us and cover the biggest stories around. We're looking for reporters who'd rather spend their time out digging up a good story than sitting around the office moping about the state of the industry.
We're The Warren Group, publishers of Banker & Tradesman newspaper and The Commercial Record magazine. With 139 years of newspapering behind us, the fun's just starting. This isn't business review dreck, or journalism that panders. We cover the trail of money, the stories that make our economy soar or swoon.
If you know how to dig behind the obvious, if you know your responsibility is to be smarter than your readers, if you know that great storytelling is rooted in both cleverness and deep understanding, then you may be the reporter we're looking for. You'll need at least two years' reporting experience (preferably at a daily) and clips that demonstrate you know how to beckon readers. You'll write about the banking and lending industries for both our print publications and our up-to-the-minute websites. You'll work with smart editors who can help you learn the lingo (and what it means in English), but you'll also be out in the community, developing sources and finding breaking news. We offer competitive pay, great benefits, a lively work environment, and a chance to do the best work of your career.
Respond with resume, clips, salary history and something more than a form cover letter to: Cory Hopkins, Editorial Director, firstname.lastname@example.org. MENTION GORKANA WHEN APPLYING! To see some of our story heads and ledes, go to www.bankerandtradesman.com
