The Orange County Business Journal, the industry-setting regional business publication covering a community exceeding 3 million people, is seeking enterprising, aggressive journalists to join its editorial team.
We’re seeking first-tier business journalists who have a track record of breaking stories, cultivating relationships and sources, and meeting deadlines.
You’ll be writing stories for a savvy business audience; we serve a readership that includes business owners, senior executives, and the most influential business people in our community.
The full-time position requires reporters who can juggle multiple tasks, including writing news-driven articles and longer features for our weekly paper. A sophisticated understanding of business – including a working knowledge of financial statements – is a must. Journalists will be joining one of the most respected, and widely-read, business publications in the country. We are the primary source of local news for most of our subscribers.
The Orange County Business Journal is a truly anomalous print publication, whose financial performance today surpasses the dot-com boom peak of 2000. Our editorial excellence has put us in a position to grow while other print media shrink. We are not digital First, we are print First.
We’re part of one of the top three groups of local business publications in the county. Our editorial department is highly accomplished and is the primary read of Orange County’s major corporate and community players.
Our coverage area includes a roster of top technology firms that are based in Orange County – Vizio, Blizzard Entertainment, Skyworks Solutions, Alteryx, Cylance, and countless others; OC is the birthplace of Broadcom, Allergan, Western Digital and dozens of other world-renowned companies. A wealth of established and emerging medical device, ophthalmic, and drug-making companies also have large presences here, including Medtronic and Johnson & Johnson. OC also is home to a robust medical delivery ecosystem including Hoag, St. Joseph Providence, City of Hope and a UC Irvine Medical Center.
OC serves as the North American operations of Hyundai, Kia, and Mazda; Taco Bell, Chipotle, and In-N-Out Burger, along with numerous household names in the apparel and cosmetics industries. Major financial players here include Pimco and Pacific Life.
