The Wall Street Journal

China Reporters
The Wall Street Journal is looking for two reporters to dive into some of the biggest stories in Asia with special attention to China. You will focus on important political and general news with a premium on scoops and well-told stories of the people caught up in events. We also will expect you to quickly bring insider reporting and smart context to bear on major breaking news stories. You will work with our broader China team to produce exclusive, high-impact coverage of a story that is defining our age — the rise of China and how the rest of the world makes room.

The ideal candidate is an endlessly curious, well sourced reporter who closely follows news about China and the region and can quickly get to the heart of big, complex news events. You will need to be an ambitious self-starter with excellent news judgment eager to get published and able to identify policy developments and topics worthy of sustained effort. Significant experience working for major international publications is required. Fluency in Chinese and a track record of breaking hard to get news are essential, as are excellent news judgment and solid writing. Location is up for discussion but would be in a major Asian capital like Hong Kong, Singapore or others.
