If you are contemplating a career in the media and are looking for a challenging but rewarding experience then a Journalism placement with Projects Abroad will be a great choice for you!

Volunteers can choose to work either on a print journalism placement or on a broadcast placement. A project in print journalism will provide you with a unique insight into the culture of the local community in which you are based. You could work with a newspaper or magazine, where you will gain valuable journalism skills and important experience in this field. Alternatively, if you prefer broadcast media, Projects Abroad can arrange a placement working on either a TV or radio station.

This is a great way to enhance your knowledge and understanding of the communities and attitudes in the developing world. Depending on your ability you may find yourself either researching, behind-the-scenes or even presenting in front of the camera or conducting on-air interviews. Volunteers are expected to be enthusiastic and focused on researching and reporting on issues and problems faced in developing countries. You are sure to gain an insight into the local culture whilst at the same time developing your own skills.

Whichever project you choose you will get to meet a variety of people from all areas of society, getting a very real and hands-on experience. For most of these placements you do not need any foreign language ability as the publications and stations generally write or speak in English.
