The Wall Street Journal is looking for a reporter to cover personal finance products and services.
Americans are sold an ever-growing number of products to manage their financial lives: from digital apps and services for taxes and budgeting, to conferences and books on how to manage your money, to brokerages competing for retail investors. We’re looking for a journalist who is curious about financial products and how they work, for both the companies and the consumers.
You should be excited about breaking news on these products and companies, and chasing down these questions: What services and apps are popping up to meet new demands? How are firms trying to get new customers? Where does personal finance advice come from? How do industry pressures affect consumers? Is free ever really free? What does it mean for Americans and their money?
You should have at least 5 years reporting experience. You will report to the personal finance editor. New York City is preferred, but we’d consider strong candidates in other regions of the country who can bring a new perspective.
Please submit a cover letter and three clips along with your resume.
