The Wall Street Journal is looking for a personal finance reporter who is eager to take big news moments and report on what it means for American households.
We're looking for a journalist who can clearly explain how simple and complex economic events affect individuals. You will write smart and analytical what-it-means-for-your-money stories about Fed actions, policy changes, Congressional moves and corporate news. You will also dive into traditional personal finance topics with new ideas on how to present them. Ideally, you will take a very detail-oriented approach to money, using data to report how costs or fees compare with an understanding of how different saving or spending strategies affect a person’s bottom line. You should also have interest in financial literacy for underserved Americans.
Digital media experience is important. You must be comfortable and innovative with digital formats. You will be involved in the personal finance group’s multitude of digital offerings, from Twitter videos, to Snapchat programming, interactive games, user-generated content, and other new formats.
You will be based in New York and report to the Personal Finance Editor.
Please submit a cover letter and three clips, along with your resume.
