Deutsche Welle hosts intensive training [Worldwide]

Journalists with knowledge of English, German and other languages can apply for the program.

DW Akademie is accepting applications for its 18-month traineeship, beginning September 2017. The program offers a mix of academic study and on-the-job learning.

The selected candidates spend the first six months participating in theory and practice-oriented seminars. The next nine months are spent in various Deutsche Welle editorial departments in Bonn, Berlin and one of the organization’s foreign bureaus in Brussels, Washington or Moscow. Trainees spend an additional month at Deutschlandradio.

Trainees earn a starting salary of EUR1,590 (US$1,653) per month and receive two raises over the course of the program. 

Applicants must have professional proficiency in English or German. Journalists who are native speakers of another language that is part of DW’s language services – especially Arabic, Chinese, Farsi, French, Russian or Spanish – are encouraged to apply.

The deadline is Feb. 22.
