The Wall Street Journal is looking for a reporter to cover consumer finance and banking from New York. 

The reporter will be expected to dive into all things related to consumer finance, from credit cards to car loans. The Journal is looking for someone who can jump on banking news and help decipher and explain the products offered by giant banks and emerging financial-technology firms alike.

A central part of the job will be covering regional and community banks, institutions that are often heavily focused on consumers and that serve millions of Americans.

This reporter will work closely with others on the banking team and throughout the Journal’s finance coverage group, especially in personal finance. Finance experience isn’t a requirement. 

The successful candidate must be willing to experiment with different storytelling formats – photo, video, audio and graphics. 

The job posting describes this as a great opportunity for an early-career reporter looking to get started in financial journalism. 

The publication is looking for a fast learner who is excited about helping readers to understand what is going on with their money.
