News Researcher, The Wall Street Journal - NY
The Wall Street Journal is seeking to hire two research professionals. We’re looking for news hounds who want to be an integral part of big, competitive stories.
These people will work in partnership with a senior researcher to enhance the quality of news gathering through the use of online databases such as Accurint, TLO, Nexis, Factiva, PACER and Courtlink.
The ideal candidates also will have some familiarity with accessing public and private databases, including using spreadsheets, as well as social media to ferret out information.
Qualified individuals must be able to handle multiple and varied research assignments. They should have a nose for retrieving and analyzing information, be able to meet tight deadlines and work well in a team atmosphere.
Attention to detail and accuracy is a must. A strong knowledge of current events is key. A degree in library or information science or demonstrated research skills in a journalism program is highly recommended.
Some weekend and evening work is required. The research team answers to Jennifer Forsyth, deputy investigations editor, but will research for all Journal news departments, not solely investigations.
