Well I must admit, I read MailOnline – both on my laptop and my iPhone (and iPad for that matter). Mainly for the TV, entertainment and showbiz news, sometimes for the Femail section, and also for the news. It’s probably not the best idea to announce this on my own journalism blog, but hey ho, I think everyone has a bit of MailOnline in their lives – quick answer to the not-so-important news.
With that aside, the Daily Mail’s Editorial Trainee Scheme for 2014 is SOON TO CLOSE! The closing date is a week today, so get scribbling. Their trainee schemes have become one of the most popular graduate schemes for journalism (not that there are many) since it started in 2003.
What will the trainees do?
- Trainees will embark on a year-long training programme that involves intense training, assessment and on-the-job experience at regional daily newspapers and agencies.
They are looking for bright, sharp, intelligent journalists who believe they can be fast-tracked to the very top, and better yet, you will be getting a competitive salary whilst you train! They favour those applicants who have post-graduate journalism training, as well as having experience working on newspapers and online media.
Apply for either an online journalist or a print sub-editor. All applicants must be available to start training in February 2014.
What do you need to do?
- Send a covering letter, your CV, and six examples of your work to firstname.lastname@example.org
- Specify your preference for an online (sport or news) or a sub-editing traineeship.
