    I have been working at NHK full-time (More than a year)


    Lots of travel. First row seat to the news. If you like international affairs and the USA, this is definitely an interesting opportunity for you.


    There is no opportunity for advancement and the divide between local staff and staff from Japan is constantly underlined from compensation differentials to how decisions are made. If you can't handle that, this is definitely not a good place for you.

    Advice to Management

    Loyalty and morale would increase if there were better recourse for bad behavior from the senior members of the office. Also, an increase in the pay to minimize the vast difference between local and Japanese staff's quality of life would be appropriate.

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at NHK.


    E-mailed application to bureau chief. Received e-mail response asking for phone interview. Received invitation for in person interview with bureau chief and correspondent. Received invitation for second interview where I transcribed congressional hearing, underlined possible soundbites, interviewed people on the street, translated materials into Japanese for the correspondent. Received e-mail the following week with formal offer.
