Special Projects Editor
Providence Business News is seeking an enterprising, energetic reporter/editor
to help cover one of the nation’s most diverse business communities.
This position combines the challenge of mastering beat coverage, in this case of the health care industry in the region,
with the satisfaction gained from shepherding PBN’s special publications, from assigning to editing through production.
The skill sets required are varied and the expectations high, but this job is a key component of PBN’s success,
something the business publication is recognized for on a regular basis, both regionally and nationally.
PBN breaks news, but it also gives the business community a take on what is happening. The special projects editor
will function as both a web reporter and a print journalist (like all our beat reporters) when not editing, and they will help
as needed update the publication's WordPress-based website.
All this activity allows the publication to inform its readers through multiple channels, from a weekly print edition,
digital reporting, regular community-based panel discussions and other emerging technologies.
PBN would prefer a business reporting background, but it is more important to demonstrate an interest in learning
and a talent for clear and precise communication.
Applicants are to send resume and writing samples to:
Mark S. Murphy, editor, at email@example.com. No phone calls.
