The Mail & Guardian is pleased to invite young graduates to apply for internship opportunities in its Johannesburg office, running from July 2017 to June 2018. Interns will be paid a stipend of R10 000 per month.
Internsships are available within the print and online divisions, as well as in the arts department.
The internships will be based in Rosebank, Johannesburg.
While each successful candidate will receive a general grounding in newsroom processes and editorial production skills, interns will be assigned to one of the following areas:
Copyediting, layout and design
Online, multimedia and social media
Arts writing, illustration, graphic design and media production.
While there will be opportunities to report and write, the focus of the internship programme will be the editorial processes involved in the production and presentation of stories and articles both online and in print, as well as in multimedia and on social media.
This programme will therefore not be limited to journalism graduates. Other appropriate fields of study may include but are not limited to languages and the liberal arts, graphic design, sound and video production, and website development.
It is in the M&G’s interest to seek out and nurture passion and potential, and to give those who hope to pursue a career in journalism a solid foundation in the fundamentals of the craft. In so doing we hope to ensure the continuation of quality journalism within the M&G and the wider industry.
No experience is necessary.
