Globe and Mail Summer 2016 Program

The Globe and Mail is looking to hire reporters, editors, photo/digital/video/multimedia specialists and designers for the summer of 2016. These are fully paid jobs and not internships. We are seeking freelance writers and editors, experienced journalists from other organizations, recent graduates or students in their graduating year.

The Globe and Mail has won more national journalism awards than any of its Canadian competitors, has been honoured internationally for its world-class website, and has captured two Emmys for video projects, so we need the best journalists to cover for our regular staff when they go on summer vacation.

Even though these jobs are just for the summer, the program is a great way to get your foot in the door at The Globe. We have hired many future senior editors, reporters, photo/digital/video editors, foreign correspondents and columnists through our summer program.

To apply, you must have previous journalism experience, whether at a media organization or through your school’s print or online publications. We want people who have a true passion for journalism, great drive combined with common sense, and an ability to step into and be a full part of Canada’s best news organization.

If you have no journalism or publishing experience, please do not apply; you won’t make it to the interview stage.

Applicants must be legally eligible to work in Canada through to September, 2016.

We accept applications by e-mail only. No phone calls, please.

The deadline for applications is Friday, Oct. 30, 2015. Interviews will be conducted in the three-week period after that.
To apply, please e-mail the following to summerjobs2016@globeandmail.com

1. Your résumé, with relevant experience, as an attachment.

2. A 100-word explanation, also as an attachment, of what you would bring to The Globe and Mail. This note is critical. We received more than 800 applicants last year for a limited number of positions so be sure to let us know why you should be chosen above the rest.

3. Three examples of your work with links. (For design, please include five samples as PDFs.)

In the subject line of your e-mail application, please indicate your city and whether you are seeking reporting, editing, digital, video, multimedia, photography or editorial design/graphics.

The subject line should therefore look like this: Montreal-photographer or Carleton-editor or Halifax-videographer, etc.

The large volume of applicants we receive every year means we cannot respond to everyone who applies. But if you are chosen for an interview, you will hear from us shortly after the deadline. Before being interviewed, please spend a little time with The Globe and Mail’s newspaper, website, app and social media channels to better understand The Globe’s brand and work.

2015/16 editorial internships at rabble.ca

2015-16 Part-time Internship Opportunities @ rabble.ca!

rabble.ca is one of the success stories of Canadian independent journalism, publishing news and columns by some of the best writers of the left, and providing exposure to new writers. You can read, hear and watch them in our original news, opinion, blogs, books, podcast and video sections, and on our moderated discussion board, babble! Since rabble.ca’s inception in 2001, our readership has grown by leaps and bounds while maintaining a loyal core readership: we get up to 450,000 unique visitors monthly, and we are growing.

rabble.ca isn’t your typical media. We operate on a shoestring budget — our annual budget is less than the salary of a single news anchor in some bigger media outlets. We’re an incorporated not-for-profit organization funded by readers and sustaining partners, and fuelled by activist energy. rabble.ca is run by passionate media professionals who work part-time and give their all to bring you the news and views that matter.

rabble.ca is currently seeking part-time volunteer editorial interns — please see descriptions of each below. The internships can be completed either independently or for academic credit in a journalism program, with program approval. Our internships meet the standards laid out by the Ontario Ministry of Labour, which are outlined here: http://www.labour.gov.on.ca/english/es/pubs/internships.php
Although our internships meet the standards to protect young workers, as a progressive news source, rabble.ca seeks to push well beyond what is considered fair and compensates interns according to our means. To recognize that interns are valued and appreciated, we offer a $500 honourarium following the successful completion of each internship.

Applications are due by Monday, October 12, 2015 at 5 p.m. ET.

As rabble operates in a virtual office environment, interns may be located anywhere in the country and will work from home; positions run through April 2016.

Candidates for the internship positions described below should have the following qualifications:

• Familiarity with rabble.ca;
• High level of responsibility, ability to meet deadlines and to work independently and with accuracy and attention to detail;
• Awareness of current affairs and of social justice movements;
• Experience working in a virtual environment preferable.

Internship 1: News writing and editing

The successful candidate will work one-on-one with rabble editors and participate in some of the daily tasks involved in producing the site. In addition, the candidate will be expected to pitch news stories, take regular news-writing assignments, assist with maintenance of our event listings page and work with the editor to prepare articles for publication. The news intern will also gain experience in research and fact-checking. Strong writing, editing and research skills are a must, as are an interest in current affairs and the ability to meet quick deadlines. You will have the opportunity to produce original feature and news material, learn and develop editing skills, and work closely with a group of committed media producers and journalists at one of Canada’s most innovative media websites.

Time commitment required: 10 hours per week; location of supervising editor: Toronto

Your location is not important but your access to the Internet and ability to meet regularly by Skype or telephone is essential.

Internship 2: The rabble podcast network

If you are enthusiastic about audio, radio and podcast production, news and current affairs, and you want to be part of creating a strong and independent media in Canada — you could be the next rpn intern!

As an intern at the rabble podcast network, you will work with the rpn’s executive producer mixing and hosting podcasts, scouting material and conceiving promotional ideas for the network.

You will have the opportunity to produce original material, develop audio editing skills and receive training from a group of committed media producers and journalists at one of Canada’s most innovative media websites. By the end of the internship, you will have a better understanding of podcast production and a sharper ear for audio editing.

Your location is not important but your access to the Internet and ability to meet regularly by Skype or telephone is essential.

Time commitment required: 10 hours per week; location of supervisor: Barrie

Internship 3: Books

This position will focus on developing editorial, writing and publishing skills under the supervision of rabble.ca’s books coordinator.

The successful candidate for this position has an eye for sharp writing and a pretty good hold on it themselves. They have a lot of books for friends, particularly from Canadian authors and independent Canadian publishers and they love to write about what’s happening in the Canadian literary scene. Oh, and they love independent media and want to make it better!

You will have the opportunity to learn and participate in every aspect of a variety of editorial and publishing duties including: curating a blog on books and writing original articles; attending weekly story meetings with pitches in hand; writing and editing original book reviews and if you want, maybe a little book-related podcasting too!

You will commit 10 hours per week, including bi-weekly check-ins with your supervising staff member. Your main supervisor is based in Brooklyn, but you can be based anywhere! A versatile intern with experience working in a digital world can accomplish their duties from anywhere.

Internship 4: Blogs

This position will focus on developing editorial, writing and publishing skills under the supervision of rabble.ca’s blogs coordinator.

This is a writing internship. The successful candidate for this position knows their nominatives from their datives, but more importantly knows how to use them beautifully. They fiercely believe the blog is the purest form of journalism. They acknowledge that language can oppress as easily as it can liberate because they have social justice written on their bones. They carry a chip on their shoulder when it comes to stories on post-secondary education issues — labour, tuition, debt, teaching — and aren’t shy about letting everyone know it. The more chips, the better, in fact. They love independent media and want to make it better.

This is also an editing internship. The successful candidate will have the opportunity to learn and participate in every aspect of a variety of editorial and publishing duties including: curating a blog on post-secondary education, tracking down potential reprints; enlisting writers for original articles; attending weekly story meetings with pitches in hand; proofreading submissions; and immersing themselves in the editorial culture of rabble.ca.

The successful candidate will commit, on average, 8-10 hours per week, including bi-weekly check-ins with the main supervising staff member. This supervisor is based in Victoria, B.C., but a versatile intern with experience working in a digital world can accomplish their duties from anywhere.

Time commitment required: 10 hours per week; location of main supervisor: Victoria

Please send resume and one-page covering letter describing your qualifications and why you would like this position to blogs coordinator Michael Stewart c/o internships@rabble.ca. Please note “rabble blogs internship” in the subject line.
