Job Information

Dow Jones Reporter in NEW YORK, New York

Job Description:

MarketWatch is seeking an enterprising and energetic reporter to cover the retail and consumer beat, from big-box retailers, like Walmart and Target, to food companies and restaurant operators like McDonald's, Chipotle and Yum! Brands. This is an opportunity to be part of a real-time desk that digs into company earnings reporters in search of news nuggets that other reporters miss. It's also a beat where mergers and acquisitions can come fast and furiously.

The candidate must be able to balance between day-to-day news, while staying on the lookout for consumer trends amid a challenging macro-environment where supply-chain bottlenecks and inflation are wreaking havoc on many parts of the industry and sending prices surging.

The perfect candidate is nimble and team oriented and knows how to turn around clean copy quickly and accurately, and knows our mission is to inform our existing audience as it is to draw new readers to MarketWatch.
