The Wall Street Journal is seeking an energetic, efficient and news-minded associate editor to join our Live Journalism team. This editor will help shape and grow our events, and will create and manage multimedia content before, during and after our flagship events.
Journal events gather top leaders and thinkers and make news. You will work with our editor of live journalism to drive, develop, and distinguish Journal events from the rest. You will work on ways to extend our events-from creating stories ahead of a conference to planning social content to overseeing newsletters and round-ups produced during events. This role will be key to making WSJ events relevant to our huge audience online.
He or she will assist in developing content and visuals for conversations that take place onstage, and will own the strategy of how we talk about the business, culture, social and political leaders featured at Journal gatherings. The ideal candidate will have great ideas for stories, videos and graphics that grow out of--or feed into--events, and the ability to bring those ideas to life.
This position requires creativity and organization in equal measure.
Other qualifications for the job include:
- A background and/or interest in editorial content and not traditional event management.
- Superior organizational skills and the ability to manage the many different stakeholders needed to collaborate on multimedia projects.
- Experience in developing and editing newsletter and social media content
- An in-depth knowledge of business, culture and finance.
- A love of research and reporting, and a fearless approach to picking up the phone or cold-emailing anyone, anywhere.
- Superior writing and editing skills.
- Bonus points if you have worked in events beforehand and know how they work.
