Journalist Trainee Assignment
The Fijian archipelago lies scattered lazily in the achingly blue waters of the Pacific Ocean, bathed in the radiant Antipodean sunlight. Its towns and villages are veritable melting pots of cultural influences – see multicoloured Hindu temples perched next to relics of the traditional indigenous spirit houses with their lingering sense of an ancient magic.
Its irresistible shores are fringed with picture-perfect palm trees, and the azure waters that surround the islands are inhabited by an astonishing array of marine creatures; over 1,200 species of fish including clown fish, trigger fish, blue tangs, 12 species of whales and dolphin, anemones, soft coral and much more.
Enjoy fragrant sun drenched days and balmy exotic nights – try a Fijian beach party for whirling fire dancers, traditional dancing and delectable food cooked in a rustic underground oven. Fiji will enchant you with its infectious, chilled out "Fiji time" lifestyle and its heavenly beaches – the perfect paradise location for your Frontier adventure!
WHAT WILL I BE DOING?
You will work closely with the other newspaper staff reporters and will be substantially involved in the intricate day to day running of either a significant English newspaper in Suva, or for a group of six magazines (2 published) which specialise in sports, fashion, weddings and travel. You may cover activities ranging from national news gathering, researching and reporting on important environmental, financial, business, political, travel, human interest stories, domestic and sporting news.
You will be encouraged to bring your own creativity and perspective to the articles you contribute to, whilst also constantly learning from professionals working alongside you. You will have the choice of either concentrating on a particular aspect of the newspaper you are interested in or work across many different elements. Wherever your goals lie, whether purely in journalism or even editing, production or advertising, this journalist trainee assignment has something for you. As well as all this, you will discover more about this exotic destination and its people through your work and involvement in the project.
Please note that we highly recommend you bring your own laptop to get the most out of this project, as spare computers at either of the placements can be a rarity!
