WSJ seeks consumer finance and banking reporter

August 16, 2019

Posted by Chris Roush

The Wall Street Journal seeks a creative and energetic reporter to cover consumer finance and banking from New York.

The reporter will dive into all things consumer finance, from credit cards to car loans. We’re 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 our finance coverage group, especially in personal finance. Finance experience isn’t a requirement. This is a great opportunity for an early-career reporter looking to get started in financial journalism.

We’re looking for a fast learner who’s excited about helping readers understand what’s going on with their money. A willingness to experiment with different storytelling formats — photo, video, audio and graphics — is a must.
