Job Description:

The Wall Street Journal is seeking an energetic and efficient associate news editor to join our Live Journalism team.

You will work closely with other senior editors in shaping and growing the various franchises currently operated by the Live Journalism team, along with creating and managing multimedia content before, during and after our flagship events.

Live Journalism at the Journal connects our readers with a diverse slate of industry leaders, thinkers and newsmakers, while igniting conversation across communities online. We currently find ourselves in a period of growth and transformation for WSJ Live Journalism, as the team has moved from producing in-person conferences and festivals to a full calendar of hybrid events.

You will partner with other editors to assist in driving, developing, and distinguishing our events from the rest.

This position will report to the Head of Live Journalism and Special Content and will be based in our New York office.

You will:

  • Conduct research in a variety of coverage areas across WSJ to pitch themes and topics to be explored at Live Journalism events.

  • Cultivate relationships with guest speakers and coordinate their appearances at events.

  • Uphold the highest WSJ journalistic, ethical and legal standards across event programs.

  • Collaborate with editors and reporters across the newsroom to hone their appearances along with ideal topics to cover on stage.

  • Coordinate and produce stories related to upcoming events ahead of the event taking place

  • Assist in developing content, such as on social media, newsletters and roundups, from conversations that take place onstage.

  • Pitch strong, actionable ideas for stories, videos and graphics that grow out of - or feed into - events.

You have:

  • A solid journalistic and reporting background with an interest in multi-platform journalism. This role is not an event production and planning position.

  • Excellent organizational skills with the ability to manage the many different stakeholders needed to collaborate on multimedia projects and events.

  • A high level of energy, creativity and idea generation.

  • Experience in developing and producing robust newsletter and social media content.

  • In-depth knowledge of business, culture and finance, and the various topics and trends that may be driving their coverage.

  • A love for research and reporting, with a fearless approach to picking up the phone or cold-emailing anyone, anywhere.

  • Outstanding writing, editing and communication skills.

  • Ideally, experience working and understanding live events.

The Journal’s reporters, editors, developers, and audio and visual journalists create important and impactful stories, firmly rooted in fact and adhering to the highest ethical standards.
