For you, journalism is more than a profession. It's a passion. You're curious and open-minded, independent and full of ideas. You've gathered initial journalism experience and have an undergraduate degree or equivalent professional training. Your goal is to take part in a rigorous traineeship with a leading international broadcaster.
If you're interested in us, we'd like to know more about you if you're also
• a native speaker of English who has acquired a basic working knowledge of German - i.e. through intensive German language courses - prior to the start of the traineeship.
• a native speaker of German who is fluent in English (i.e. for live reporting)
• a native speaker of another language that is part of DW's language services - especially Arabic, Chinese, Farsi, French, Russian or Spanish. You also need a good working knowledge of English and German.
Language is key here. Along with English and German, all applicants have a good working knowledge of at least one additional DW language. Please note: We are no longer accepting applications for the 2015 traineeship. The application process for the program starting in September 2016 will open in mid-January 2016.
