JOURNALISM internships in Chile: Work in a magazine or local newspaper, typically an English / Spanish publication. Plan on editing texts, interviewing people, finding or taking photos for articles. Participate in creative projects and meetings such as brainstorming for relevant article ideas. Plan to be sent “out” on assignment and many ask our interns to bring their own cameras and laptops.
At a private University, we are given one tow two spots for journalism interns working in the Communications department. Duties include: coordination of communications from various departments regarding internal and external activities at the university; reports and interviews and chronicling of Dept of Communications activities; participation in the creation of the university News paper “Viento Norte”, including editing & design; news items to be reported on the universities web page.
RADIO STATION: Radio stations in Chile are extremely relevant socially, not just to entertain, but also to communicate trends and news both nationally and internationally.
The intern will be involved in a dynamic atmosphere with a diverse range of tasks under the supervision of a news or journalist Director. For this internship much responsibility is required, as the work completed by the intern will be dispersed into the community. The intern can become involved in different areas, based on their skill set, desires and ongoing projects. For example: programming, news, radio ‘controller’, interviews and publicity. This is a solid work experience assignment. High intermediate level of Spanish required.
For the right intern: Young, alternative radio station offers a vigorous work experience. Recordings are once a week, and the rest of the week plan on working ‘in the street’, conducting interviews, recording ads, editing interviews, working the online version of the various radio show options, finalizing articles to be read and any other tasks the Radio Manager requests. Plenty of action, current, and quite busy. Requirements: strong intermediate to advanced level of Spanish, especially conversation for interviewing guests.
