BizBash is looking for smart, energetic reporters who can contribute to our news coverage of events in Toronto. BizBash publishes a magazine and Web site for corporate event planners. Think of us as Women's Wear Daily or Variety for the event industry.

This is a great opportunity for an ambitious reporter who wants to go out several nights a week, while—and this is the important part—looking beyond the PR and celebrity photo ops to cover the business decisions and strategies behind these events.

That can mean going from a film premiere to a product launch to an after-party at night, and then writing snappy, well-reported, business-minded stories for our audience of corporate event planners the next day.

Essential skills and qualifications include:
* One to two years of newspaper, magazine, and/or online reporting/writing experience.
* Solid knowledge of the basics of reporting and fact-checking.
* Writing informative, attention-getting heads, decks, and captions.
* Local business community contacts are a plus.

To apply, please send a letter, a resume, and two writing samples to jberg@bizbash.com. No phone calls, no faxes.


Please send the following to jberg@bizbash.com:
--Resume pasted directly into email (no attachment)
--Links to 1-2 writing samples, or pdf attachment to no more than two samples
--1-2 References
--Availability, including weeks, days of the week, and hours
