The Canadian Business internship
The Canadian Business digital internship is an opportunity for early-career journalists to get real-world, on-the-job experience working on a monthly magazine and daily website.
Our interns are an integral part of the team, and are expected to contribute as such. This one-year internship will provide a thorough grounding in the basics of a hybrid print-digital newsroom. Canadian Business operates with a small staff, so versatility, problem-solving and initiative are key qualities of successful candidates.
Duties primarily include: pitching and writing stories for the print magazine; timely reporting and analysis for CanadianBusiness.com; pursuing longer-form or multimedia digital-only stories; assisting with daily operations of the website, e-newsletters, social media and more. We aim to provide the opportunity to pursue projects that will simultaneously build the intern’s skills while enhancing the publication overall.
While superior news judgment and writing skills are a must, we welcome applicants with interest or experience with digital reporting tools and methods, including: video, audio, mapping, statistical analysis, data-driven journalism or other disciplines. Surprise us! In all cases, a desire to pursue business and financial journalism is neccessary.
To apply, e-mail a cover letter, resumé, a list of available references, and your three best clippings or URLs to Graham F. Scott, managing editor, at graham dot scott (at) canadianbusiness dot com. No phone calls, please. We ask that you minimize the use of attachments as much as is practical, and ensure URLs are active and accessible. We welcome all applications, but can only respond to candidates selected for an interview.
