The Canadian Business internship is an opportunity for young journalists to obtain real-world, on-the-job training. Canadian Business interns are an integral part of the magazine’s staff, and expected to perform as such. Successful candidates will receive well-rounded training and guidance to hone their writing skills (though self-motivation will be an important factor), and opportunities exist to learn about other areas of magazine publishing, to attend industry functions and, sometimes, to travel. By the end of their internship, successful candidates should be able to write a feature story and should have several clippings to add to their portfolio.
The Canadian Business internship program, founded in 1995, was the first paid magazine internship in Canada, and remains one of, if not the, highest paying. Many of our interns have become writers and editors at the magazine, while others have gone on to senior positions at other publications.
Canadian Business offers an annual 12-month internship, beginning in May. Applications must be received by Jan. 31, 2013.
