Friday is the deadline to apply for a Gazette 2010 summer internship. The internship, which is how I got started there, runs from May to September and is paid at a respectable rate, 80% of the starting salary for the position. The number of positions changes from year to year, but usually involves four reporters, a copy editor and an online editor.

The Concordia journalism department has a copy of the letter (PDF) sent to schools asking for applications.

Among the requirements:

  • Currently enrolled in a university-level program
  • Fully bilingual (being able to read, speak and understand French is essential for a working journalist in Quebec)
  • Have a driver’s license

The ability to write is also considered an asset (but then, they hired me, so their standards are flexible).

Concordia Journalism has a list of other internships, though some of the deadlines have already passed. J-Source also has a list of internships, though some of the links and information is out of date.
