MarketWatch seeks a reporter for its personal finance team who can filter the news of the day through a single question: 'What does this mean for me and my money?' It's what readers of every news story wonder on some level, and in a financial climate with boundless opportunity for bad decision making, answering it has never been more important.
We are experiencing a cultural moment in which long-taken-for-granted attitudes about consumerism, capitalism, and the meaning of professional success are being challenged in new ways.
The ideal candidate is passionate about service journalism, the belief that good reporting and writing can help readers lead richer more meaningful lives. This writer must be adept at explaining complex topics in a clear, punchy voice, and be eager to not only break news, but help readers make sense of it. This reporter will be given the latitude to build and evolve their own mini beat within the lens of personal finance – and that is a fairly wide lens, since ultimately every story is on some level a money story.
The position, based in our New York office, requires at least three years journalism experience, strong writing skills, an interest in finance, and a keen understanding of how to engage readers.
