WSJ seeks a Heard on the Street columnist
The Wall Street Journal is looking for a Heard on the Street columnist to fill an opening on its team in New York. Heard is the long-running financial and economic analysis section of the WSJ with journalists based in five major financial centers across the world.
Heard’s columnists regularly produce scoops of insight into the world’s most important economic and business stories. Heard can be fast-paced and is often the first part of the WSJ to weigh in on a major business or economic development.
You will be an experienced journalist or financial analyst, ideally with some experience covering the health care sector. This is an especially exciting time to cover the health industry with a pandemic still affecting the global economy and the cost of healthcare a hot button political issue.
You should be able to both work independently and to collaborate with other members of the Heard team on longer-term projects. You will report to Spencer Jakab, Heard on the Street Editor.
