Contract: Full Time

Thanks to Deisy Moreno (Akita-ken, 2019-2021) for passing along the following job opening.

The Los Angeles Bureau of the Yomiuri Shimbun seeks a reporter/research assistant to help cover news—including in the western and midwestern states, western Canada, and Mexico.

This job primarily involves assisting the Japanese Bureau Chief by monitoring the news and suggesting stories to cover, arranging and conducting interviews, preparing research on a wide range of topics, transcribing interviews, and covering breaking news events.

The work can be fast-paced and there are daily deadlines. The position will require occasional travel to cover major news events and to report feature stories.

Research and interviews are conducted in English, but all writing of Yomiuri articles is done by the Bureau Chief in Japanese; there are no byline opportunities for this position.
