BFM is looking for a few good interns year-round, for a minimum of three months. Requirements include a familiarity with our programming, curiosity, fresh ideas, enthusiasm, initiative and a track record of follow-through. We are also looking to proactively partner up with local universities to select the best students in journalism and other more non-traditional studies, and to match them with programmes which match their interests and passions.
At any given time we might have internships in news, longer-form programmes, production, events and sales. BFM also has the need for longer-term interns on a part-time basis, two or three days a week for at least four months. Students still at university are especially encouraged to apply.
