As you may know, I will soon be finishing my PhD and looking for a job. Today, I saw this advert for a trainee reporters job with the Daily Mail.
- Britain’s most successful newspaper group is offering would-be reporters and writers an exciting and challenging yearlong training course, plus the chance to work at the Daily Mail and Mail Online
- We are looking for bright, sharp, intelligent writers who believe they can be fast-tracked to the very top
- You’ll be on the best journalism course in the business – and be paid a competitive salary while you train
- Successful applicants will probably have completed post-graduate journalism training or had experience working in newspapers
