Ministry Of Sport Now In Search For Q2 Journalism Interns
Ministry of Sport (MOS) has begun the recruitment search for its Q2 (quarter two) journalism interns.
The 12-week internship program, since its introduction in 2020, has led to career growth and outcomes for a number of participants, including roles at the AFL, racing.com, online media publications, and public relations agencies.
This year In Q1, the MOS team welcomed Brea Wright, Mathew Skilton and Dominic Criniti, who successfully graduated from the program last week.
Reflecting on her experience as part of the Q1 intern intake, Brea Wright said: “Still being in university, it’s very hard to get a good understanding of what journalism and sports writing is like, without actually working in the industry.”
“This internship was the perfect opportunity to experience proper deadlines, interviews and journalism.
“The team helped push me to write beyond the limits I thought I was capable of, and writing stories became like second nature to me once I reached the 12th week.
“I got more journalism experience in a few weeks at MOS than I normally would in a semester of university,” said Brea.
Working three days a week, the intern will be guided online by the editor and tasked with creating engaging content for the Ministry of Sport site, including news stories, feature interviews, social media and digital content.
Under the guidance of the editor, the intern will get a taste of what it is like to work in a professional newsroom (while working from home), gaining valuable contacts and relationships with members of the sports industry, both in Australia and internationally.
