Campus.ie: DEADLINE 2ND JULY


In campus.ie we are concerned with providing a platform for student writers. We feel it's important to feature news and events for students by students.

In the spring semester of 2009 we conducted a pilot project, offering 4 selected students a journalist internship role on campus.ie. Due to its great success we have continued to develop this programme. Our current session is coming to an end and we are now seeking Summer Interns. The internship will run for 3 months; July, August and September.

The successful candidates will be required to work in a team of two on a 3 week rotation basis to produce student-focused articles and features for national publication on Campus.ie. Responsibilities will include research, writing, editing, online publication.

Training will be provided in all areas and you will work closely with the senior website editor. This is a unique, exciting and challenging opportunity to gain valuable experience for those wishing to pursue a career in journalism, PR, Digital media or related fields. While being provided with training and the opportunity to be published in an established national media, interns can develop their portfolio and build on industry contacts.

These are non-paid positions. However, interns will be offered a stipend per submission.
