Few organizations can keep up with the fast-paced, 24/7 nature of today's media coverage; even fewer can claim to have helped shape it. Bloomberg has long been a leading source of data and news and presents one of the most challenging environments in financial journalism. Bloomberg offers a unique opportunity to produce real-time stories that shape the markets and our world.
Bloomberg News seeks a reporter in its Mexico City office to cover Mexican economics and politics. Successful applicants will have an in-depth knowledge of the region, fluent English and Spanish and at least three years of experience covering the beat at a major newspaper or news service. Candidates should be accustomed to producing clear and comprehensive enterprise pieces, have a record of breaking important stories, and be able to write spot news under real-time deadline pressure. They should also have the ability to develop contacts that lead to exclusive stories. Familiarity with the Bloomberg Terminal is a plus. Please submit CVs in English.
