Wall Street Journal seeks real estate reporter in China
The Wall Street Journal’s China bureau seeks a correspondent either based in Beijing or Shanghai to cover the country’s critical real estate sector and the wider economy. The correspondent will work as part of a team covering the world’s second largest economy and will cover the beat from the broadest possible perspective, from the property market’s impact on growth and bank debt to its importance for the aspiring middle class.
The position requires an experienced hand. It calls for someone who can dig into details and see the big picture. The reporter should be able to cover market-moving data in real time and then build on the news, providing analysis and reporting to produce compelling, informative spot enterprise. China’s property market involves huge developers, who are increasingly seeking their fortunes abroad, and the sector underpins a wide swath of industry, from steel mills to furniture makers.
The ideal candidate should have a nose for a good story and a strong understanding of the economy. Working as part of a team is a must. Chinese language ability is a plus. The job reports to the China bureau chief.
