About the CJF-Globe and Mail Internship for Investigative Journalism
The CJF-Globe and Mail Internship for Investigative Journalism brings a journalist to The Globe and Mail to pursue a six-month long investigative journalism project under the guidance of editors and senior reporters.
The annual internship allows a Canadian journalist early in his or her career (one to five years experience) to work with a senior team at The Globe and Mail in Toronto. The goal of the program is to provide an opportunity for the intern to stretch his or her investigative journalism skills with the help of some of the country’s best reporters and editors.
Intern duties include reporting and writing, research, filing FOI requests, taking photographs, shooting and editing video, and designing on multiple platforms. The candidate will receive a stipend of $750/week for a six-month internship. To be eligible, candidates should have completed at least one professional news media job or internship at a daily news organization. The internship will begin in June, 2018.
The online application will include:
• Cover letter, addressing how the candidate will contribute to the process/project. Please note that a story pitch is not necessary.
• Work examples (five to seven pieces that demonstrate skills and range of experience)
• Recommendation letter from at least two professional or school references
