The New York Times wants to hire a journalist to travel the world. Here’s the scoop, straight from the NYT:

Every year, the New York Times recommends 52 Places to Go, one place to dream about exploring each week. The list is an ambitious forecast of which beaches will remain unspoiled, which starchitect-designed museums will live up to their renderings and which culinary treasures are worth hopping a flight to eat.

This year, we want at least one ambitious traveler to turn our wish list into an itinerary.

We are seeking a journalist who, over the course of 2018, will go to every destination on our list and tell us the story of each place and the story of life on the road. The ideal candidate is a permanent student of life and astute documentarian of the world. This person should have a well-worn passport, the ability to parachute into a place and distill its essence and to render a compelling tale with words and images.

Media experience is required, as is fluency in English, expertise in social media and facility with digital devices. Familiarity with languages beyond English is a plus though not a requirement.

Qualifications:

  • Has traveled to several destinations.
  • Have documented travel in writing, social media or elsewhere.
  • Is active on social media.
  • Has prior experience at a magazine, publishing company, newspaper, digital publication, film or other media organization.
  • Can commit to a full year.

To Apply:
