Al Jazeera English is Looking for Interns

So… just how badly do you want to break into the international political reporting game? Are you willing to foot your own airfare for a three-month unpaid position in Doha, Qatar as an Al-Jazeera English intern?

Look on the bright side. The DQ-HQ-ed network is willing to pay for your accommodation, and no matter what transpires in the newsroom during those three months, you will come out of it with the ultimate conversation starter for future paying-job interviews. Via the worldwide invite from AJ English partner X Media Interactive:

You need cross-cultural awareness, you need to be hungry to both learn and contribute. And to be a great learner – you need to be a great listener.

You need to be ready to apply yourself to contributing in either: Development & Design; R&D, Research and Reporting; Future Mapping or Creative Ideas. If you need to ask what any of these terms mean – it probably means you’re not ready to apply for the internship.

That goes double if you can’t explain what the words Al Jazeera mean in Arabic. Praise Wikipedia!
