Remote interns with a passion for journalism and media have the opportunity to collaborate with a variety of placements, such as an international award-winning TV production company, English-language newspapers such as “The Citizen” and “The Guardian”, youth magazines or other relevant publications. These remote internship placements are based with companies that operate within Dar-es-Salaam, Tanzania. Interns are welcome to state preferences for their remote internship placement when applying but matches are subject to availability and other factors (such as where your specific skills can be best utilized at the time of your online internship).
Remote internships with the TV production company may involve (but may not be limited to) researching content, assisting with script and copy writing in English, and project management. The company is directed by a female Tanzanian TV presenter, journalist and woman’s rights activist. Weekly talk shows are routinely featured by the company, which typically focus on social and political topics. The production company also produces documentaries, advertisements, education films and multi-platform media campaigns. All programs are pre-recorded and made in-house.
Remote internships with English-language newspapers or youth magazines are typically focused on tasks related to graphic design, layout, researching content and writing articles. Typical inserts include sports, politics, business, lifestyle, health, fashion, and youth culture. Online interns have the responsibility to contribute in a professional and timely manner, as tight deadlines are being worked to within this industry.
This internship is conducted in English.
