Job Information

Dow Jones Personal Finance, Barron's in NEW YORK, New York

Job Description:

Barron’s is searching for an insightful and experienced personal finance writer who can help readers navigate through the rapidly changing world of investing and the critical pocketbook issues that Americans are facing.

A key component of this person’s job will be to explain and respond to news events -- and what those developments could mean for the wealth, retirement, taxes and incomes of ordinary people.

Candidates should be well-versed in the traditional advice that has helped generations of workers retire well. At the same time, we are seeking a writer who understands the unique challenges that millennials and younger generations face in building wealth -- as well as the range of new options these emerging investors and savers can tap. This journalist should be able to advise readers on emerging products -- and whether they should take the plunge into new instruments such as cryptocurrencies and other alternative investments.

A successful candidate should be digitally savvy and able to make the news digestible by using FAQs, charts and other news-you-can-use story forms. Experience working in a newsroom is required, as is working collaboratively with colleagues and editors.

Interested candidates can send a resume, no more than three clips in PDF form and a cover letter to David Cho or Bob Rose or apply through the link provided.

Responsibilities include:

  • Well sourced with the influencers, companies and personalities that drive the personal finance world.

  • Able to generate quick angles and strong ideas off the news and meet urgent deadlines.

  • Able to generate long-form ideas that answer major questions about personal finance and pocketbook issues.

  • Familiarity with corporate balance sheets, financial valuations and investing principles.
