Postmedia News is prowling for talented, creative and high-energy students to join our newsroom in the summer of 2014. The environment is fast-paced, the job demanding. Bring a commitment to hard work and a thirst for ferreting out stories from a sometimes tough-to-crack political culture.

Successful candidates cover federal politics for 12 weeks for Postmedia websites and newspapers across the country. Our emphasis is digital, so bring well-honed video and social media skills with you. We’re looking for applicants who can bang out quick but accurate breaking-news but who can also turn those stories into thoughtful, elegant and analytical features for the tablet or for next-day newspapers.

Proficiency in French is a strong asset for this job.

Postmedia News is the parliamentary news service for the Postmedia Network papers and websites, including the National Post, Ottawa Citizen, Montreal Gazette, Vancouver Sun, Edmonton Journal and Calgary Herald, and for canada.com.

The deadline for applications is Jan. 20, 2014.  Please include a summary letter, resume and samples of your work. Please make clear that you are applying for a summer position. These are paid internships.
