Washington Post seeks a corporate culture reporter

February 8, 2022

Posted by Chris Roush

The Washington Post is looking for an experienced reporter to cover American workplace culture, from the latest strategies for managing the seemingly never-ending pandemic to the shifting expectations of millennial and Gen Z workers.

This reporter will chronicle a critical moment in the evolution of work in America, as employers and employees struggle to renegotiate a social contract altered by two years of remote work, labor shortages and technological innovation. The ideal candidate will have a stable of sources across the business landscape and produce groundbreaking stories about trends in workplace management, worker values and corporate culture generally.

We are looking for someone who can produce a mix of news and enterprise, delivering a steady cadence of quick-turn pieces while pursuing more deeply reported features and enterprise stories. The ideal candidate will demonstrate a familiarity with workplace issues that have emerged during the pandemic, as well as an ability to find the people who can illuminate those issues for readers. Experience writing about economics and business subjects is a plus, as is a willingness to travel.

This position is based in our Washington newsroom. Once we resume normal operations, the position will not be eligible for remote work.

The Post strives to provide its readers with high-quality, trustworthy news and information while constantly innovating. That mission is best served by a diverse, multi-generational workforce with varied life experiences and perspectives. All cultures and backgrounds are welcomed.

Interested applicants should upload a résumé, cover letter and three examples of their work (attached as pdfs) to our jobs portal by Feb. 10. All application materials can be uploaded to the same field. The cover letter should be addressed to Business Editor Lori Montgomery, Deputy Business Editor Zachary Goldfarb and Sunday Business Editor Suzanne Goldenberg, and Managing Editors Tracy Grant and Krissah Thompson.
