WSJ seeks a private equity reporter in New York

February 25, 2022

Posted by Chris Roush

The Wall Street Journal is looking for an enterprising news hound to cover one of the fastest growing and most influential areas of the global capital markets, private equity.

Private equity touches nearly every corner of our lives from the software we use to the food we eat and even the music we listen to, but much of the industry operates outside of the public eye. If you are interested in uncovering stories about the firms, people and personalities that shape one the most interesting areas of the capital markets, come join our team.

You write for an audience of private-equity investment professionals, entrepreneurs, consultants and other executives who read WSJ Pro Private Equity, a premium product that includes a daily newsletter and provides stories and analysis about the industry.

You should be able to produce high-impact scoops and interpret complex financial concepts. Ideally, you have experience covering private equity, but candidates who have worked at least three years in financial journalism, with a proven ability to break news and write cogently about financial matters, will also be considered.

You should also be a team player who can work with journalists on the Pro Private Equity team and across The Wall Street Journal to produce compelling stories for various platforms.

Although you may start remotely, the position will eventually be based in New York. You will report to the Pro Private Equity bureau chief.

To apply, please submit your resume, a cover letter explaining how you would approach the role and five recent clips.
