Full Time

The Wall Street Journal is looking to create a team of two spot news reporters in New York.

The job requires news chops as well as enterprise thinking. The reporters need to identify important stories from around the country, as well as ones that resonate with readers because they are just irresistible to read.

Reporters should be very digitally-minded and smart in thinking about how to ride a news story online.

We see these positions as a chance to develop reporters. There will be opportunity to build out a story into longer narratives and travel to report them out. What starts as a breaking news story on a crime could turn into a fascinating, true-crime narrative tale, for example.

As part of the U.S. news team, these reporters can also expect to parachute in on big breaking news stories of the day, from hurricanes, shootings, floods and whatever else develops in this vast and fascinating country.
