One-year internships available @ Toronto Star

The Toronto Star offers year-long paid internships for graduates under the age of 30, who have never held a full-time, permanent staff position at a Canadian daily newspaper.

"Successful reporting candidates rotate through teams in the city department," according to the Star's website. "Copy editing interns are assigned to at least three different editing desks during the year. The program begins with orientation and there are regular, mandatory seminar days. A demonstrated commitment to journalism is required, either through a combination of formal journalism training and experience, or extensive experience. We will consider candidates with non-traditional qualifications and credentials. The 2007 program includes six reporters, a photographer, two copy editors and graphic artist. This mix can vary from year to year."
