Washington Post seeks global business reporter
The Washington Post is looking for an intrepid and experienced reporter to cover global business.
This writer will explore a wide-ranging beat about the most important business trends around the world – and the implications for policymakers, workers, and the U.S. and global economy. Candidates should be prepared to travel outside the United States regularly.
A successful candidate will be expected to produce an aggressive coverage plan and should have extensive experience in crafting deep-dive enterprise. When major international business events happen, this reporter should be able to step back and explain the forces behind the news in a clear and elegant way.
The mission will be to chart the opportunities and challenges posed by globalization. Technology companies are mining the world’s resources in places such as Africa to make the gadgets that we use every day. The Big Three auto companies sell more cars in Asia than they do in the United States. The changing economics of energy is reshaping countries like Saudi Arabia and Iran.
Internet companies are under pressure to alter their platforms to comply with foreign governments that aren’t as open to free speech — or free elections. The supply of labor is being reshaped by rising economic powers and changing policies toward migration.
And sanctions, tax policy, trade policy and diplomacy are all in flux in the Trump era — with significant implications for businesses and workers.
To be considered for this role, please email a resume and three clips to David Cho (firstname.lastname@example.org), Zachary Goldfarb (email@example.com) or Tracy Grant (firstname.lastname@example.org) by March 9.
