Sector Overview

In today’s international context, international journalism internships will definitely make a difference when competing for a future position in print media (newspapers, magazines, online media, special interest) or broadcast media (TV, radio, film, online media).

Journalism is the investigation and reporting of events, issues, and trends to a broad audience. Although there is much variation within the industry, the ideal is to keep the citizens informed. Besides covering organizations and institutions such as government and business, it also covers cultural aspects of society such as arts and entertainment. The field includes jobs such as editing, photojournalism, and documentary.

If you speak the local language, you will have even more internship opportunities
