Challenging, creative environment that can often be too fast paced and stressful.
Staff Reporter (Current Employee) – Orlando, FL – November 10, 2015
The Orlando Business Journal is a challenging place to work. The staff consists of a small group of creative individuals that pulls together a big, informative weekly business publication every week.
Unlike other publications, the Orlando Business Journal operates like a daily but with only a quarter of the staff you may see at large publications. While this is great for the company — creating a lean and fast publication — it creates a stressful environment as each reporter must turn around a lot of copy in a small amount of time for both online and print. It's a lot to handle, but once grasped, it gives writers the feeling of actually accomplishing something.
Also, being a business publication, writers have the ability to really get some one-on-one time with well-known local CEOs, go on interesting assignments and gather helpful information that could contribute to the local economy.
