Company Updates

September 12, 2018
We’ve heard from our employees regarding the need for paid leave to care for family members who are ill and we’re proud to announce we're now including up to 4 weeks of paid FMLA when you need to be away from the office to care for your sick family members, which we will call Compassionate Care Pay. Previously, employees were able to take 12 weeks of unpaid leave through the Family & Medical Leave Act (FMLA), available to employees who worked at least 1,250 hours in the last 12 months of Dow Jones service.
November 16, 2017
Beginning January 1, 2018, we are pleased to announce further enhancements to our global standard for paid childcare leave. Today, our current policy provides for up to 12 weeks of paid leave for primary caregivers. We will increase the standard to 20 weeks of full base pay. In addition, employees will now only need 6 months of service to qualify for paid childcare leave, instead of the 1 year of service previously required. Dow Jones, as an organization, is firmly committed to providing our employees with programs and services designed to achieve work/life balance.

    Easy Interview
    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Dow Jones (United Kingdom)

    Interview

    Fairly straightforward initial call with recruiter followed by in-depth interview with two senior editors. The latter was very much focused on content and newsroom-related experience, ability to work under pressure etc. There was some discussion about sector-related knowledge too.
    Interview

    Why would you like to work for a wire service? How do you cope with pressure?
