Barron’s is searching for an insightful and experienced personal finance writer who can help readers navigate through the rapidly changing world of investing and the critical pocketbook issues that Americans are facing.
A key component of this person’s job will be to explain and respond to news events — and what those developments could mean for the wealth, retirement, taxes and incomes of ordinary people.
Candidates should be well-versed in the traditional advice that has helped generations of workers retire well. At the same time, we are seeking a writer who understands the unique challenges that millennials and younger generations face in building wealth — as well as the range of new options these emerging investors and savers can tap. This journalist should be able to advise readers on emerging products — and whether they should take the plunge into new instruments such as cryptocurrencies and other alternative investments.
A successful candidate should be digitally savvy and able to make the news digestible by using FAQs, charts and other news-you-can-use story forms. Experience working in a newsroom is required, as is working collaboratively with colleagues and editors.
Interested candidates can send a resume, no more than three clips in PDF form and a cover letter to David Cho firstname.lastname@example.org or Bob Rose email@example.com or apply through the link provided.
- Well sourced with the influencers, companies and personalities that drive the personal finance world.
- Able to generate quick angles and strong ideas off the news and meet urgent deadlines.
- Able to generate long-form ideas that answer major questions about personal finance and pocketbook issues.
- Familiarity with corporate balance sheets, financial valuations and investing principles.
