    What do you think, take the job for one year and string for U.S. papers covering the Olympics this summer? J/K ...

    From JournalismJobs.com:

    The China Daily newspaper group is looking for English-language copy-editors and writers to beef up its international team. We offer a competitive salary package, free accommodation with utilities paid for, medical coverage, and return ticket to country of residence.
    Senior copy-editors

    You will assist the editors of the National, Opinion, Business, International, Features and Sports departments in setting goals and working on achieving them. You should be an excellent team person who can generate ideas and think creatively, be able to rewrite totally if needed and mentor junior staff. Ideally, you are working, or have worked, in a position of responsibility and understand what leadership entails. You should be familiar with computer programs used in the industry.


    You’ll work on shifts in different departments and usually have the last word before the page is sent to print. You have to edit or rewrite copy and give snappy headlines and captions. You would have had at least two year’s editing experience working on editing desks and be familiar with industry software.


    You would have been a writer/reporter in a newspaper for at least two years and, depending on your skills, you will be assigned to one of the major departments.

    If you would like to inquire about openings at China Daily or just want to know more, write to job@chinadaily.com.cn
