WSJ seeks Wal-Mart reporter

January 13, 2015

The Wall Street Journal is looking for an enterprising reporter to cover Wal-Mart — the world’s biggest company – as well as the wider retail industry it inhabits.

The job is based in New York and will require a broad approach to the company, from covering its financial results and strategy, to revealing its impact on suppliers and rivals, to analyzing its socioeconomic role.

Wal-Mart’s half a trillion dollars in sales and international reach make it an excellent starting point for looking at everything from the struggles of low income families in America to the crackdown on global corporations in China, and we’re interested in all of it. The job also involves responsibility for other big-box retailers including Home Depot and Costco.

We’re looking for a reporter who can get inside companies and thoughtfully interpret what he or she finds there. The successful candidate will be expected to break news on strategic shifts and executive reshufflings, as well as develop smart features about the way retail works today. An absolute must is the ability to work smoothly with colleagues on related beats and overseas.

Interested? Get in touch with Corporate Bureau Chief Andrew Dowell or Business Editor Dennis Berman.
