• At least 2 years of experience as a writer and/or reporter, including the ability to perform and multi-task under pressure
• Must be highly motivated, extremely organized, detail-oriented, and possess outstanding communication, analytical and coordination skills

• Familiarity with following and reporting on current events, especially as they relate to politics, policy, business and finance
• Familiarity and comfort with social media
• Ability to convey to readers why, and how, high-level or abstract stories could affect them
