She worked in bureaus across the U.S., where her beats included labor issues, housing and urban affairs. She served as the Journal’s deputy bureau chief in London before transferring to New York, creating the “Managing Your Career” column and sharing a Pulitzer Prize for stories about corporate scandals.
Her coverage of corporate governance, executive pay, management recruiting and succession appeared on the Journal’s front page and Business & Tech section.
Lublin is also the author of “Earning It: Hard-Won Lessons from Trailblazing Women at the Top of the Business World.”
