DW journalism traineeship

Deutsche Welle (DW) is looking for young journalists from all over the world interested in a comprehensive, exceptional quality journalism program with an international broadcaster, with excellent English and German language skills. Young candidates need to be open-minded and have initial journalistic experience.

Candidates should have journalism experience or be passionate about switching to journalism from technology/IT, economics or the sciences. We are looking for open-minded people full of creative ideas. The program covers the range of skills a journalist of the future needs: TV moderation, multimedia storytelling, data journalism, social media and virtual reality - in seminars, workshops and of course the DW editorial offices and our correspondent bureaux in Washington, Moscow and Brussels. DW trainees are involved in long-term innovative, international projects and have been honored in past years with the CNN Journalism Award and the Grimme Prize.

The new traineeship gets underway in September 2017. Applications are being accepted from January 2 until February 22, 2017.
