Me­dia in­tern­ships close soon

Auckland City Harbour News - - NEWS -

Ap­pli­ca­tions for Fair­fax Me­dia jour­nal­ism in­tern­ships close on Septem­ber 21.

The date was pushed out by two weeks after feed­back from po­ten­tial ap­pli­cants.

‘‘The search is the most im­por­tant part of the in­tern process and we’re happy to ex­tend it so ap­pli­cants have more time,’’ Fair­fax ed­i­to­rial de­vel­op­ment man­ager Clive Lind says.

Fair­fax has been run­ning a jour­nal­ism in­tern scheme since 2006 and is look­ing for peo­ple who want to work across all me­dia plat­forms, in­clud­ing so­cial me­dia.

Ap­pli­cants will need to sub­mit a video up to 90 seconds long via YouTube about them­selves say­ing why they should be se­lected as trainees. They should also an­swer the ques­tion, ‘‘ What is the fu­ture of jour­nal­ism in the dig­i­tal world?’

They should prefer­ably have a rel­e­vant ter­tiary qual­i­fi­ca­tion though can­di­dates with a min­i­mum qual­i­fi­ca­tion of NCEA Level 3 or rel­e­vant life skills will be con­sid­ered.

Ap­pli­cants need to be cit­i­zens or per­ma­nent res­i­dents of New Zealand and able to demon­strate an ab­so­lute pas­sion for news and me­dia. Suc­cess­ful can­di­dates will be in­vited to meet Fair­fax rep­re­sen­ta­tives in Oc­to­ber in Auck­land, Wellington or Christchurch.

Go to fair­fax­me­ ca­reers to ap­ply.
