The Wall Street Journal’s CFO Journal is looking for a reporter to help readers understand the complexities of corporate finance, from cash management and accounting to M&A and succession planning. CFO Journal is a must-read destination for finance executives and other professionals who need sophisticated news and analysis on corporate finance.
The position calls for a journalist interested in the changing role of the finance chief, and the dollars and cents behind business decisions. The right team player should have business-journalism experience, such as covering a corporate beat or financial markets. The reporter must also demonstrate an understanding of – or eagerness to delve into – governance issues, management shifts and capital allocation in corporate America and abroad.
The ideal candidate will be able to think and write broadly and be adept at balancing short-term coverage and breaking news with features and longer-term assignments. The writing needs to be sophisticated enough to appeal to finance chiefs, yet clear enough to be understood by other professionals with a keen interest in finance.
This position is based in New York.
