    Reporter

    Location: Toronto

    We're looking for an experienced reporter to join the combined Wall Street Journal/Dow Jones Newswires bureau in Canada to cover some of its big corporate players -- with a special focus on Research In Motion.

    The Canadian corporate beat is all about technology, and we're looking for someone with a track record of breaking corporate news, anything from boardroom shuffles to product launches. The beat would also include some of the country's other national champions, from Bombardier to Air Canada.

    The successful candidate should also be able to break news and visualize and execute corporate stories, from features to the front page, as well as being flexible enough to jump into general assignment news reporting.

A willingness to enjoy chilly temperatures -- and all that comes with it, including hockey and maple syrup -- is a plus.  The position is based in the eminently livable Toronto.

    Dow Jones Newswires

    Reporter

    Location: Mexico City

    The Mexico City bureau is looking for a strong reporter to cover the Bank of Mexico, one of the most respected central banks among major emerging markets. Given the importance of our foreign exchange coverage, the central bank of Latin America’s second-largest economy and the U.S.’s third-biggest commercial partner after Canada and China is a critical beat. It’s also a fascinating one. The Mexican monetary authority is one of the few central banks in Latin America that has been able to hold interest rates steady at record low levels as inflation has yet to become a problem. That could change at any time given external pressures on commodities prices, and the likelihood that the country’s output gap will close this year, generating demand pressure on prices. The job involves breaking news on Mexico’s big monetary and macroeconomic issues of the day. Quick, strong writing and insightful analysis are also a must. Proficiency in Spanish is essential for the job. The bureau, which we share with three Wall Street Journal reporters, is located in one of the region’s most cosmopolitan cities.

    To apply, go to www.dowjones.com mouse over “careers” and click “Search for Jobs.” Search for job number 100000206.  Please attach a resume, cover letter and any relevant writing samples to your online application.
