White House Reporter, Washington, D.C.
Posted Jul 9, 2019 - Requisition No. 76010
The energy of a newsroom. The pace of a trading floor. At Bloomberg, we connect decision makers to a dynamic network of information, people and ideas. At the core of this network is our ability to deliver data, news and analytics through innovative technology – quickly and accurately. Around the clock, around the globe – we empower business leaders with breaking news, expert opinion and proprietary data distributed across platforms.
The Bloomberg Washington bureau is seeking a reporter to cover the White House. Covering Donald Trump's White House is a round-the-clock affair. You will need to be a high-energy news-breaker - someone who lives to scoop the competition. It is not required that you have experience covering Washington. You will need to have competitive spirit, a collegial attitude and relentless energy. We’ll trust you to land high-level conceptual scoops and craft enterprise stories. In this exciting role, your focus will shift from the White House to the campaign trail as Trump seeks re-election in 2020. You will travel around the country and, at times, around the world.
You will need to have:
- 5 or more years of experience covering a major institution, from a government to a major company to a leading industry.
- Demonstrated ability to build sources quickly, and maintain strong relationships.
- Ability to break news on unfamiliar topics and work closely with editors to bring reporting to life in high-impact stories.
- Interest and flexibility to travel both nationally and globally, sometimes on short notice.
- Willingness and ability to dig into complex trade, financial, budgetary, legislative and other policy matters while keeping "horse race" politics coverage to a minimum.
