WSJ seeks resources reporter in Beijing
The Wall Street Journal’s China bureau seeks a resourceful, energetic reporter to cover China’s outsized role in energy and other resources sectors.
China is both a huge producer and consumer of resources, and its appetite and industry move world markets, captivate global investors and miners and frustrate trade negotiators and climate-change warriors.
The reporter will cover both broad macro movements as well as the companies and people behind them. China is home to three of the biggest oil companies as well as the largest power company in the world.
It produces more steel than any other country, and its companies are scouring the earth for resources from Australia to Zambia.
The position, to be based in Beijing, calls for a reporter with a sharp eye for trends, the drive to break news and the agility to turn them into richly reported, smartly analytical deep dives.
The ability to work as part of a team and the temperament to stay calm under pressure are musts. Chinese language ability is a plus.
