Embassy takes interns for varying lengths of time (depending on the fit, it could be from a few weeks to a few months) at all times of year except over the Christmas holiday. It does not typically take co-op students.
Editorial interns need to have some basic journalism experience, preferably working on a daily or weekly newspaper, and they should be armed with good story ideas. Work or study experience in the fields of foreign affairs, immigration, development, defence, or trade would be an asset, as would knowledge of French and/or other languages.
Interns get the experience of working in a real newsroom covering the diplomatic community and exciting stories with national and international implications. You will also likely walk out with good clippings for your portfolio.
We have a small newsroom, so if you have enough journalism experience, you will have the opportunity to really write—not just shadow journalists.
Thank you for your interest in Embassy.
