National Correspondent, Midwest

Job Description:

We are looking for a national correspondent to join our U.S. News team. The ideal candidate 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, investigations and enterprise journalism.

The job offers the opportunity to travel. An enterprising reporter will be taken across a vast stretch from the Dakotas to Arkansas. 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 a region grappling with low unemployment and a population shortage. It is an exciting time to be covering the U.S.

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.
