Just two months after hiring a third member of our reporting team, The Capitolist is planning yet another expansion to our coverage of news and events at Florida’s nexus of business, policy and politics. Our goal is to help our readers understand the people, the companies and the industry segments that are driving Florida’s growth and how they interact with our state’s policymakers, opinion leaders, and political community.
In support of that mission, we are looking to add a fourth member to our Tallahassee-based news team.
We’re looking for a self-starter with at least five years of experience in journalism, agency, corporate communications or similar areas with a communications focus. You’ll need an understanding of how business and government agencies work, and how that work impacts our state’s economic outlook.
Excellent writing skills are an absolute must.
The successful candidate also will be savvy in social media (Twitter, Facebook, etc.) and know how to get the most out of their smartphone’s camera system.
The position will be based in Tallahassee and will require flexibility in work hours as public meetings and events dictate.
Candidates should send a cover letter, resume, and writing samples, along with compensation history and requirements, to:
