SpaceNews, the website and weekly newspaper covering the global space industry, has an immediate opening for an experienced, hard-nosed reporter to cover policy, national security, missile defense and other space-related matters.
We typically require three to five years of federal government or business reporting experience, but will consider other qualifications on a case-by-case basis. An ability to thrive in a fast-paced, competitive environment is a must. Familiarity with the space or defense industry is a plus, but not a necessity.
Successful candidate must develop sources in Congress, the Pentagon, the White House and industry, and be able to distill complex subject matter into easily understood prose.
This is a diverse beat that delves into a variety of topics including finance, defense, policy, telecommunications, science and technology. Travel opportunities arise three to four times per year.
Candidates should send resume, cover letter including salary requirements and clips to email@example.com. AND PLEASE MENTION GORKANA WHEN APPLYING!
