TORONTO, Jan. 30, 2018 /CNW/ - Early-career journalists looking to sharpen their reporting and research skills are encouraged to apply for the CJF-Globe and Mail Internship for Investigative Journalism, a unique opportunity to work on an ongoing investigative journalism project under the guidance of Globe editors and senior reporters. The deadline is Feb. 23, 2018.
Presented by The Canadian Journalism Foundation and The Globe and Mail, the annual internship—now in its second year—is open to Canadian journalists with one-to-five years experience. The intern will work for six months with a senior team at theGlobe in Toronto to produce investigative and enterprise journalism.
"This program gives developing talent the opportunity to work on longer-term stories, often collaborating with our investigative team, without the constant pull toward daily news," said Dennis Choquette, The Globe's head of enterprise journalism.
This unique internship provides a reporter with time and support to conduct deep research. Last year's intern, Molly Hayes, worked on two key pieces: a deeply-reported look at TIFF, one of the country's premier cultural institutions, and a multi-part investigation on marijuana and organized crime.
Intern duties include reporting and writing, research, filing FOI requests, taking photographs, shooting and editing video, and designing on multiple platforms. The candidate will receive a stipend of $750/week for the six-month internship.
To be eligible, candidates should have had at least one professional news media job or internship at a daily news organization. The internship will begin in June 2018.
