Quick! Jump! Great opportunity for journalists
I am just back from Dublin where I have been talking about the Independent News & Media's Editorial Graduate Training programme which starts in July. Ireland's biggest media group is looking for graduates from all disciplines for its paid 12-month training scheme which will hopefully lead to a full-time role in the multi-media newsroom. But if you are interested in applying you will need to be quick ... applications close on Friday. All you need to do is send a CV, covering letter and samples of your work to firstname.lastname@example.org. You should also be passionate about the media, fascinated by the news, have excellent written and verbal skills and an understanding of digital and social media. Oh, and you'll need to be hard-working and innovative too. It's a fantastic opportunity with a great group that is developing as a vibrant print and digital business. You don't have to be Irish ... and Dublin is a great city. So if you are a graduate looking to jump start your media career this summer, this is quite probably the opportunity you've been looking for. Move swiftly and get your application in by the end of the week.
