HSP is an independent news organization owned and managed by journalists. There are no "empty suits" to disrupt the newsroom with surprise reorganizations or long-winded internal memos. No rigid corporate policies. No office politics.
Instead, we maintain an informal, yet hard-driving environment where editors and reporters are free to immerse themselves in their beats and stay in constant contact with sources in the financial and real estate markets we cover.
We publish four highly regarded weekly newsletters — Real Estate Alert, Hedge Fund Alert, Commercial Mortgage Alert and Asset-Backed Alert – with others on the drawing board. Our subscribers are well educated, fiercely competitive and handsomely paid dealmakers with an insatiable appetite for fresh business leads. For that reason, we place a high value on reporters who regularly break big news stories.
To attract strong journalists and other high-caliber staffers, HSP offers generous pay – plus an impressive benefits package.

Business News Editor
We’re seeking a journalist who is highly skilled at editing stories about commercial real estate finance and investment for content and style. The ideal candidate will have sharp rewriting and copy-editing skills, but this is far more than a copy-editing job. The editor will work closely with reporters on assignments and ensure that our scoop-oriented articles are presented accurately, concisely and in context for our high-powered readers. At least five years of business-editing experience is required.
We're seeking scoop-oriented reporters for our four weekly financial publications. You should have three years of reporting experience with hard-news clips from an online news service, daily newspaper, or weekly publication. Business-news experience is a definite plus. We offer generous salaries, impressive benefits and an informal work environment.
We are seeking a detail-oriented individual to help maintain our databases that are used by commercial real estate and financial professionals. The job requires someone who operates with precision in gathering and maintaining large amounts of data. You should also be nimble with Excel and other applications. Microsoft Access skills are strong plus. You would initially be called on to support our Database Managers with data gathering and entry, with the goal of eventually taking on greater responsibilities.
You’d be joining a 30-year-old financial news organization well recognized in the commercial real estate market, bond market and hedge fund industry.

Life insurance. Each employee gets up to $300,000 of life insurance, as well as short- and long-term disability, and workers compensation coverage.
Profit-sharing. To reward employees for the company's success, Harrison Scott allocates a portion of its profits to employees' tax-deferred profit-sharing accounts. The annual amount in recent years has averaged about $5,000 per employee.

Vacation. Every year, Harrison Scott closes its editorial operations during Christmas and New Years weeks and during the two weeks prior to Labor Day -- which means everyone gets four weeks off.
Personal days. In addition to vacation time, employees are entitled to an additional six days off for illness or other personal reasons. We encourage you to use all six days every year.
Paid maternity leave. A pregnant employee who has been with Harrison Scott for at least one year is entitled to 12 consecutive weeks of leave with full salary.
Paid holidays. The company is closed for at least 11 holidays each year.

Health-club fees. HSP reimburses up to $250 of annual fees for health-club membership or physical fitness programs.
Pre-tax expenses. Employees may choose to have certain discretionary expenses deducted from their paychecks -- and reap savings by paying for some expenses on a pre-tax basis.
