The Wall Street Journal is looking for multiple national correspondents from across the U.S. to join our U.S. News team on a contract basis. The ideal candidates will identify high-impact stories and issues for us to cover. The reporter needs to love news and big, fast-breaking news stories. This is a great opportunity for someone eager to be part of the biggest stories of the day, while striving for deeply reported narratives and enterprise journalism.
The job offers the opportunity to travel. An enterprising reporter will be taken across a vast stretch of the country. Reporters are expected to develop sources locally but also to embrace parachuting into new subjects and sourcing up quickly. The subject terrain is equally vast and exciting: politics when states are setting the course on issues like gun control and immigration, and economic trends in regions grappling with low unemployment and either a population shortage or boom.
Reporters should be very digitally-minded and smart in thinking about how to ride a news story online.
The ideal candidate needs to be a great collaborator. U.S. news reporters frequently collaborate with colleagues and bureaus from across coverage areas at the Journal. The reporter will parachute into crises where working on the ground with a team of colleagues is crucial to our success. It is an exciting time to be covering the U.S.
At least three years of reporting experience is preferred.
Possible locations include, but aren't limited to: Miami, Houston, Minneapolis, Detroit, St. Louis, Phoenix, New York and New Orleans. We're looking for both contract workers and full-time staffers.
