Dow Jones Special Writer in NEW YORK, New York

Job Description:

The Wall Street Journal seeks a dynamic, quick editor for its Real Time editing desk. This job positions you on the front lines of the Journal's editing operations, putting some of the biggest news of the day -- from multibillion-dollar mergers to acts of terrorism -- in your hands as it breaks. The job also involves sending rapid-fire breaking-news headlines to subscribers who are reading on their terminals. This is an opportunity to create and edit market-leading breaking news for the global authority in business journalism.

The ideal candidate for this position will be flexible, ambitious and adept with technology. She or he will be an accomplished line editor who can spot mistakes and also isn't afraid to flip the structure of a story or ask important questions when there are holes.

This job can also be an excellent stepping-stone to other opportunities at The Journal. Editors who excel here will be well-positioned for other roles in the company.

Applications should include a resume, cover letter, and up to five published clips.
