WSJ seeks auto reporter in Michigan
The global autos team at The Wall Street Journal is looking for a U.S.-based reporter to cover one of America’s most storied industries. The successful candidate is a proven bulldog able to cultivate sources, identify emerging trends and break stories in a car business full of colorful characters and emerging technologies.
The stories go well beyond the companies making the vehicles. Dealers, suppliers, unions, regulators and lenders are among the players shaping the future of an increasingly global industry. The beat also includes new entrants like Tesla, Mobileye and Warren Buffett in the race to design, build and sell one of the world’s most enduring consumer products.
The successful candidate is one who understands how to compete on WSJ’s multiple platforms and can deliver breakthrough work for each of them, including Page One. Editing experience and an ambition to help guide global coverage is a plus. The Wall Street Journal has long been a leader in covering the global automobile business, and the Detroit bureau is looking for a reporter driven to stand out on a beat that is cluttered with competition.
