WSJ seeks deputy corporate coverage chief
The Wall Street Journal is looking for a seasoned, creative and inspiring journalist to help lead our business coverage. The role of deputy corporate coverage chief at its heart is about helping editors and reporters around the world conceptualize, dig up and deliver best-in-class business journalism. In practice, the mission takes numerous forms — identifying and leading projects and major coverage veins, strategizing on stories with reporters and editors and helping ensure we deliver every day for readers.
You will have myriad responsibilities and opportunities. You will generate ideas and drive coverage. You will help coordinate efforts across bureaus, coverage areas and geographies. You will work with visual, audio, video and strategy colleagues; help manage our planning; and edit copy. Your work also involves collaborating closely with editors across the Journal’s digital platforms, as well as top newsroom leaders, to ensure our business coverage satisfies our standards and enjoys the reach it deserves.
We’re looking for an accomplished journalist with substantial experience covering business, finance or economics. You have a track record of delivering exclusive stories and distinguishing enterprise. You are creative and able to tackle topics with a fresh take or unconventional approach. You are a problem solver who helps smooth paths to success. You are well organized. You are a leader who inspires people and also a teacher who guides people. You are versatile as to subject matter and story format, you are eager to experiment with different approaches to reporting and presentation, and you are determined to help our work find its broadest audience.
