Dow Jones Reporter in ISTANBUL, Turkey
The Wall Street Journal’s Turkey bureau is looking to hire a seasoned journalist to help cover this strategically important nation. The ideal candidate has Turkish language abilities, experience in risky environments and a track record covering a range of political, security and economic stories.
Turkey is experiencing a historically pivotal time in which its democratic traditions are buckling, society is polarizing and questions are mounting about whether this G20 economy has lost its punch. At the same time, the nation has positioned itself as a major player in Mideast crises like Syria and Iraq, the EU refugee crisis and the international fight against Islamic State.
The tight-knit bureau is looking for a team player with Turkish language ability and a willingness to work both amid the corridors of political power in Ankara and the military zones of southern Turkey. Bureau reporters write ambitiously and for many platforms. Work hours can be demanding, but living in Turkey also provides plenty of opportunity for late night research into the essential place Raki holds over Turkish culture or weekend trips to the beach. Added bonus: cat videos on the morning subway commute to the office.
