Project Description

We need a self-motivated candidate to work with the Office of International Media Engagement (PA/IME) to prepare the Early Alert daily media analysis read by senior policy-makers in Washington and at posts in the region – as well as additional special topic analytical products. This includes monitoring East Asia and Pacific media on a daily basis and flagging misunderstandings of U.S. policies. The East Asia and the Pacific region continues to be of key importance to the United States and this product informs the daily decisions of senior policy-makers.

PA/IME, in coordination with our officer based in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, will work with you to identify the daily topics we should highlight and edit the final report. We will also work with you to think creatively about how to generate greater interest in our social media properties. You will draft Facebook posts and tweets that highlight U.S. engagement with East Asia and the Pacific and information helpful to journalists.

We specialize in multilateral and regional topics as well as issues that reach beyond the Asia Pacific region.
