The Economist seeks social media interns

Jul
01

The Economist is seeking two social media fellows (interns). These are paid positions (£2,000 per month) and Adnan Sarwar, assistant community editor at The Economist, tells me that 'there will be no making of tea unless they want one themselves'. He adds that he started his career with the famous title as an intern. You can find all the details at www.economist.com/social-media-fellowship .Note that you will need to make yourself very familiar with newspaper to have a realistic chance of success. The effort will be worth it. This would be a superb place to start a career in serious journalism.  I encourage you to apply. The Economist is a truly great title and has been for a very long time. It features prominently in my recent research into newspaper coverage of the doctrine of unconditional surrender between 1943 and 1945...but of course you knew that already....

Huge congratulations to Kishan Koria who began his career as a journalist today, Sunday 8 May, as a member of the production team for ITN's new politics show, Peston On Sunday. I thought the show was lively and intelligent. Kishan has done exceptionally well to start on a network show, but I know several other soon-to-be graduates in the Centre have agreed,or are about to agree, contracts for other great jobs in great newsrooms.
