If you're looking for an opportunity to get real hands on experience in an international newsroom, this is your chance. CNN International's bureau in central London is looking for a Digital Features Intern to join its team over the summer.
Unlike many internships, this one actually pays a little money (minimum wage) but hey that's enough for lunch and the train in.
What will you be doing? The same thing you would be anywhere else: research, fact-checking, production support etc.
If you prove your worth you might even be allowed to put your byline on something or interview someone awesome. Even more importantly, being a good intern is the first step to getting asked to come back as a freelancer (and actually getting paid real money).
You have to be detail-oriented, have strong writing and research skills, have a passion for digital media and global affairs and have an interest in pursuing a career in digital journalism. The application says that candidates "will have a love for all things web, a good nose for a story and strong multimedia skills".
HOW TO APPLY:
Closing date: March 25th
CNN.com International seeks an intern to work in the Digital Features/Special Projects department.
1st placement: April 1, 2014-July 1, 20142nd placement: July 1, 2014- October 1, 2014
If interested, please email your CV and a cover letter explaining why you’re suitable for the internship to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please include links to THREE samples of published work and indicate which internship dates you’re interested in (either or both).
