Stars and Stripes is searching for a talented, aggressive reporter to help provide quality First Amendment-protected news and information to the U.S. military community overseas. And it’s a unique opportunity to live and work in South Korea, one of the world’s most exciting and dynamic countries.
This position, based south of Seoul on Camp Humphreys, serves as our primary correspondent on the Korean peninsula and reports to editors in Tokyo. You’ll work alongside a Korean translator/editorial specialist and a junior reporter assigned to us by the U.S. Army.
We’re looking for someone who can spot broader U.S. military issues and develop them into enterprise stories that resonate throughout the global community of U.S. troops, civilians, veterans and their families.
The ideal candidate is a hard worker able to tackle everything from sudden North Korean missile launches to in depth analysis pieces on military cost-sharing negotiations between Seoul and Washington.
Experience with and knowledge of the U.S. military is a major plus. Sharp news instincts, interviewing skills and the ability to develop top-notch sources and write on tight deadlines are a must. Social media skills are also required.
Qualified candidates will receive excellent federal benefits, including paid housing/utilities and a regular post allowance (non-taxable money granted to federal workers stationed in a foreign area to help offset a high cost of living). You’ll also be able to shop tax-free at U.S. military bases.
