Outrageous! Job opportunity at the Daily Mail

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.

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

Apply by February 21, with your CV, 200 words on why you think you could be a Mail journalist, a 200-word news story and a selection of up to six cuttings and send to Sue Ryan, Trainee Reporters’ Scheme, Daily Mail, Northcliffe House, 2 Derry St, London W8 5TT. Please send queries to sue.ryan@dailymail.co.uk

Unfortunately, it appears that both Enemies of Reason and Angry Mob have already submitted their applications (you can see their applications by clicking on the links). Based upon these two fine entries, I am not sure I fancy my chances.
