WSJ seeks manufacturing reporter in Chicago

May 22, 2018

The Wall Street Journal is looking for an industrious, resourceful reporter to cover one of the most essential of business beats: manufacturing.

This job involves taking readers inside some of the biggest American businesses and the economic and technological forces that are reshaping how they make things, from the rise of robots to changes in education to the development of China’s economy.

The position is focused on the U.S., where manufacturing still accounts for 12% of U.S. economic output and employs about one in 12 workers. But it requires a global mindset as well as a talent for identifying themes and insights across a large and varied corporate landscape.

The ideal candidate should have several years of experience covering a business or finance beat, and a proven ability to break news and deliver unique analysis on companies.

We cover some that boast big brands—Caterpillar, Harley, 3M—and others that are big but less well-known, and require the candidate’s skill and creativity to bring to life for the broad business readership. The ideal candidate also must be able to work effectively with colleagues on other Journal teams that cover big chunks of American manufacturing, such as autos and aerospace.
