Marketwatch.com seeks financial reporter
MarketWatch seeks a sharp, energetic, Internet-savvy financial reporter to cover a range of markets from its New York headquarters. The ideal candidate will have some experience as a business journalist, particularly in a real-time environment, and a background that reflects the ability to develop sources, cover breaking news and write enterprise stories, and to tell stories through and about data. Understanding of stocks, commodities, bonds and/or currencies is a plus.
We’re looking for writers who are enthusiastic about being part of a fast-paced, flexible group of reporters who thrive on the pulse of financial markets – from 400-point swings in the Dow to hedge-fund battles over a single stock – and want to relay that excitement to our retail-investor readers. Candidates should be ready to tell those stories through a range of media, including blogs, social media, straight news reports, long-form features and data visualizations. Importantly, we’re looking for reporters who want to help shape the next phase of digital journalism. Interested candidates should include a cover letter that includes social media handles and why they’re interested in MarketWatch.
Please attach a resume, cover letter and three to five published clips to your online application.
