Here’s a quick highlight of the types of jobs available:
Gorkana and DePaul University released results of their inaugural survey of nearly 350 financial journalists. Among other key findings was a top 10 list of influential news outlets. Wall Street Journal, Bloomberg News and New York Times claimed the top spots.
It’s not often we get insight into how journalists view their peers and competitors. Media group Gorkana and faculty from DePaul University interviewed top financial journalists to find out how they develop story ideas, which sources they trust most and which industry outlets are viewed as most influential. Sound like this is right up your alley? I mean Wall Street.
Short on time? Here are a few other cool findings from the research:
Monitoring peer coverage and other news outlets, as well as personal interest, top the ways journalists develop story ideas. Reader/viewer/listener emails weren’t far behind, followed by government news releases and corporate news releases.
CEOs are viewed as the most credible source of company information, closely followed by academics/experts, financial industry analysts, and technical experts.
Journalists view The Wall Street Journal as the most influential financial news outlet, followed by Bloomberg News, The New York Times, Reuters, Financial Times, CNBC, Dow Jones News,The Economist, FOX News, and Forbes.
The New York Times dominates the list of most influential journalists, with half of the journalists in the top-ten coming from that publication. Andrew Ross Sorkin, financial columnist for The New York Times, founder of that newspaper’s Deal Book blog and co-anchor of CNBC’s ‘Squawk Box’ leads the pack, followed by Gretchen Morgenson, columnist for The New York Times, and Michael Lewis, best-selling author and Vanity Fair contributor.

We’re back with ANOTHER awesome giveaway. This time my friends at Tracky and I are giving three (yes, three) pairs of geek chic Warby Parker glasses to three lucky people. Your choices include regular glasses, sunglasses and the oh so chic monocle.
The countdown is on. Tracky is about to launch its social collaboration software on March 27th in Las Vegas. I’ll be there as an Advisory Board member, cheering them on. To celebrate with all my virtual friends we’re doing some geeky giveaways to promote the launch.
Why do I care so much? Because I know that Tracky is going to be a game changer. Really. I wouldn’t put my name to it if I didn’t think so.
Tracky helps people and companies organize all of their to do’s, work projects and social connections in a single, easy-to-use dashboard – from planning a wedding to launching an international brand. They’ve put together the most popular types of productivity and collaboration tools into one (amazing) platform, including:
Cloud-based file sharing
Where else can you work on a project with someone real-time, tweet a comment from the dialogue, check off a task list and add something to Outlook? The answer is NOWHERE, except for Tracky.
Thanks for letting me share my excitement with you. Now, how to win those goggles:
This giveaway will award three random participants with three pairs of any combination of Warby Parker glasses. Plus it’s going to help Tracky get users, followers and spread the message of a better way to collaborate. The more actions you take, the more entries you get, increasing your chances of winning.
You can spend the rest of the day thinking about the three pairs you’ll select if you win!
