The Asahi Shimbun newspaper seeks a skilled and highly motivated Assistant Reporter/office manager:
The position is for its New York Bureau office. While the successful candidate will primarily report to the bureau chief and secondarily to a correspondent, (s)he will most closely work with the latter.
Founded in 1879, The Asahi Shimbun is widely recognized as Japanâ€™s leading and most respected national daily broadsheet. It has a circulation of nearly six million copies per day, and is read by a wide segment of the Japanese public. The newspaper is particularly influential among Japanâ€™s government officials, policymakers and academics. It also reaches an English-speaking audience through its English language website. Its North American bureaus are located in Washington, D.C., New York, and San Francisco.
Applicants must have a bachelorâ€™s degree (masterâ€™s degree preferred). Excellent communication skills and ability to work independently are required. Background in International Affairs and/or American Politics/Society is desirable. Japanese language skills are helpful but not required.
Primary duties are twofold:
First (work distribution: 70%): assisting our New York-based correspondent by conducting background research, gathering news and comments, arranging and conducting interviews, and closely following developments in the correspondentâ€™s beat. That said, candidates must be flexible and willing to work with other correspondents on other issues when necessary. Some travel, domestic and international, may be required (this is a reporting position with no article-writing or byline opportunities initially).
Second (work distribution: 30%): handling the update and maintenance of the bureau officeâ€™s ICT equipment (phones; internet; cable TV; PCs; printers, etc.) in coordination with our ICT consultant, carriers, and vendors.
Compensation includes overtime pay, excellent medical/dental benefits, and commuting expenses. The position will be available starting at the end of Nov, 2017.
Bachelorâ€™s degree holders: $2,900 — $3,000 (monthly); Masterâ€™s degree holders: $3,000 â€“ $3,100 (monthly)
(The above ranges may vary depending on the applicantâ€™s work experience)
Please email cover letter and resume (fax if you so prefer). Please provide names and contact information for two references. No clips or phone calls, please.
