Opportunity Cover Image - Deutsche Welle International Journalism Traineeship Program 2019-20, Germany

Deutsche Welle's newly-designed traineeship takes you around the world in just 18 months. Internships with our English and German editorial departments give you a chance to look into economic and cultural issues as well as news and sports. You'll also be active in at least one of DW's other broadcast language departments such as the Chinese, Farsi or Spanish department, and support them according to your language skills. Regardless of the language you're working in youll be part of the editorial teams right from day one, writing and producing reports and conducting interviews for television, radio and online. At the core of the training is a total of six months of theory and practice-oriented seminar blocks looking at everything from journalism basics and live reports to data-driven journalism and mobile reporting. Multimedia is not just a buzzword here - it's how we work. And it'll be the way you work, too - in seminars, editorial departments and your final project. By the end of the traineeship you'll be an expert in multimedia storytelling.
