WSJ seking New Delhi senior reporter
by Chris Roush
Wall Street Journal deputy managing editor Matt Murray sent out the following announcement on Tuesday:
The New Delhi bureau is looking for a senior writer to focus on breaking news and enterprise features, focusing on the highest-impact articles for all channels.
The range of the job is vast and its primary role is to bring to life corporate and general news that is exclusive, in fact or thought, for all of our audiences, including our growing Indian readership. We are seeking a reporter who can craft a beautiful feature for page one, break a corporate news Urgent, spin off posts for India Real Time, appear on video and take a leading role in shaping our overall coverage of the world’s largest democracy.
Familiarity with Hindi or another Indian language is desirable but not mandatory. But the ability to deliver mark-up, well-crafted copy is a must. At least five years reporting experience is required. And the candidate, who will be based in New Delhi, should be flexible enough, in attitude and talent, to lead coverage on as wide a range of issues as a country of 1.2 billion people with more than a dozen official languages, 28 states, seven major religions, two global technology centers and the ambition to be a global superpower might require.
Interested candidates should contact Paul Beckett, Matt Murray or Rebecca Blumenstein.
