Fair­fax Me­dia in­tern­ships open

Central Leader - - NEWS -

Ap­pli­ca­tions are now open for the Fair­fax Me­dia 2013-2014 Jour­nal­ism In­tern Scheme.

Group ex­ec­u­tive edi­tor Paul Thomp­son says the me­dia in­dus­try is fac­ing chal­lenges but jour­nal­ism re­mains a ca­reer of huge va­ri­ety and op­por­tu­nity.

The in­tern scheme was launched in 2006 and has proved highly suc­cess­ful.

Suc­cess­ful ap­pli­cants will un­dergo a year’s train­ing in 2014 at a lead­ing jour­nal­ism school and will join Fair­fax pub­li­ca­tions or web­sites af­ter grad­u­at­ing.

The scheme also of­fers par­tic­i­pants work ex­pe­ri­ence dur­ing course hol­i­days at Fair­fax pub­li­ca­tions; em­ploy­ment with a Fair­fax pub­li­ca­tion at the con­clu­sion of the course; on­go­ing train­ing and ca­reer de­vel­op­ment.

Par­tic­i­pants who suc­cess­fully com­plete their cour­ses will be re­im­bursed for their fees and bonded to Fair­fax for two years. Ap­pli­ca­tions close on July 26. Fair­fax Me­dia is the owner of Sub­ur­ban News­pa­pers and the Cen­tral Leader.
