How to apply for The Globe's 2013 summer program

The Globe and Mail's Report on Business newsroom

Moe Doiron/The Globe and Mail

The Globe and Mail is looking to hire reporters, web editors, copy editors, a photographer and a page designer for the summer of 2013 in its Toronto office, as well as one reporter-editor for its Vancouver office. These are fully paid 12-week summer jobs and not internships. We hire students, freelance writers and editors, as well as experienced journalists from other organizations.

The Globe and Mail has won more national journalism awards than any of its Canadian competitors, has been honoured internationally for its world-class website, and has captured two Emmys for video projects, so we need the best journalists to replace our regular staff when they go on vacation.

Even though these jobs are just for the summer, the program is a great way to get your foot in the door at The Globe and Mail. We have hired many future senior editors, reporters, online editors, foreign correspondents and columnists through our summer program.

We are looking for people who are ready to work at Canada's national newspaper and who have previous journalism experience – whether at a school paper, a Canadian daily or an online organization. We want people who have a true passion for journalism, great drive combined with common sense, and an ability to step in and be a full part of Canada's best news organization. A university or college degree or advanced studies in other areas is an asset. FYI: If you have no journalism experience through a school, freelance work, regular blog or other organization, you probably won't make it to the interview stage.

We accept expressions of interest by e-mail only, per the instructions below. No phone calls, please!

The deadline for applications is 5 p.m. ET on Monday Nov. 5, 2012. Interviews will be conducted in the weeks immediately following.

E-mail the following to please:

1. Resumé, including relevant experience, as an attachment.

2. A 100-word explanation of what you would bring to The Globe and Mail.

3. Three examples of your work through active links.

In the subject line of your e-mail application, please indicate your school or city and whether you are seeking editing, web, reporting, photography or newspaper design work. The subject line should therefore look like this: Ryerson-photographer or Carleton-editor or Vancouver-reporter, etc.

The large volume of applicants we receive every year means we cannot respond to everyone who applies. But you will hear from us shortly after the deadline if you are chosen for an interview. If you are, please spend a little time with The Globe and Mail and before we see you.

Good luck to everyone.

Executive Editor,
Summer 2013 Program Coordinator
