Reporter / Researcher for Japan's largest newspaper and news site
Main duties involve assisting the Yomiuri Shimbun's Japanese business correspondent by covering events, tracking relevant stories, arranging and conducting interviews, doing research, and coming up with story ideas. In addition to reporting on business areas such as tech, autos, and banking, and covering financial markets, you may have to cover other areas (including national politics, sports, etc.) as the situation warrants. Since the articles are written in Japanese, there are no byline opportunities for this position.
Some transcribing of briefings and interviews is also required.
Applicants must be prepared to work occasional overtime.
