Few organizations can keep up with the fast-paced, 24/7 nature of today's media coverage; even fewer can claim to have helped shape it. Bloomberg has long been a leading source of data and news, and presents one of the most challenging environments in financial journalism. Bloomberg offers a unique opportunity to produce real-time stories that shape the markets and our world.
Bloomberg News seeks a reporter in its Houston office to join the Energy Industry team, covering major oilfield-services providers and/or petroleum producers. Knowledge of the economy, financial markets and business is essential, and at least three years' business reporting experience at a major newspaper or wire service is preferred. The successful applicant will produce breaking news stories under real-time deadline pressure, ensuring they are clear and comprehensive.
The reporter will focus on breaking news, such as earnings reports and market-moving incidents, such as ship-channel closings, and will be expected to produce enterprise pieces on a regular basis. He or she will have the proven ability to write clearly and concisely under deadline pressure and will demonstrate the news judgment to identify the most important elements of a breaking business story. The reporter will also be comfortable working within a team environment.
