Dow Jones Work & Life Columnist in NEW YORK, New York

By selecting “Apply” above, you indicate you have read and acknowledge the Dow Jones Applicant Privacy Notice and Dow Jones Cookie Policy , including data transfers as described in the Policy.

Job Description:

The Wall Street Journal is looking for a new columnist to write its popular Work & Family column following the retirement of Sue Shellenbarger in January. The new weekly column, tentatively called Work & Life, will expand the scope of the current one to include the broader intersection of personal life and the workplace.

Starting in 2021, the millennial generation will make up more than half the workforce and the column should explore the most pressing issues in this transition. It should look at the tension between working and raising a family, but also living a fulfilling single life, caring for aging parents, fertility, shifting definitions of professional success, the future of remote work, office dating, the gig economy, the evolution of how we think about diversity at work and less linear career and personal life trajectories.

We're looking for someone who has been a beat reporter and dominated a coverage area with original ideas, an authoritative voice and engaging writing. An understanding of management/career/workplace issues is secondary to an ability to conceptualize fresh and lively columns. We envision this column having a major video component, so skill and comfort with video storytelling is a plus.

You will write mainly for the Life & Arts section and contribute regularly to special sections such as Women in the Workplace, Leadership Report, the Graduation issue and others. The role can be based in New York or elsewhere in the U.S.

You will report to the Life & Arts coverage chief.
