Cape Town - The New York Times is looking for a travel writer to visit all 52 of their top places to visit in a year.
According to the job listing, the renowned newspaper wants to hire a correspondent for a year to just travel to all of their 52 Places to Go and tell stories of each place in order to build an itinerary for their readers.
The list includes places in Africa like Botswana, Kenya, Madagascar, Marrakesh and Gabon, but unfortunately not South Africa despite having topped the list in 2014. A couple of spots in USA also made the list, and so did countries like Japan, Greece, England and Kazakhstan.
For them, "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."
There doesn't appear to be a deadline, but the lucky person needs to be fluent in English, have prior experience at a media organisation, have good mileage to a few destinations, make good use of their social media accounts and have proof of documenting travel in writing or on social media.
You should also be handy with various digital devices.
Of course everyone is vying for the job.
