Eur@dioNantes, a European Radio station based in Nantes and supported by the European Commission, has recently launched the selection process of its upcoming European team of interns.
Eur@dioNantes is currently looking for high-level bilingual (in french) students in political science, journalism or European studies who are interested in European issues and who would like to get a formative experience in the world of New European Media. The internship will start on the 23th of August 2011 in Nantes and run up until the 23th of february 2012 (documents have to be returned before the end of june).
The students get a monthly allowance of about 417 €.
How it works : The Eur@dioNantes team is composed of several young journalists who come from all over Europe and are trained at the radio station in Nantes.
They are coached by French professional journalists, who have had years of experience in journalism. For several months the journalists will learn how to create new ways of listening to european information. They will have to immerse themselves into the local environment in Nantes and compare what they see and hear to the wider frame of European news. The aim is to open new perspectives and consider the implications of what is happening on a cultural, economical, social or political level on a local, national and European scale.
The English interns will also present the daily, live show English for Everyone.
This is a cultural programme which explores the latest news in Europe as well as European cultural events and music. The presenters will have the opportunity to interview a wide variety of artists from all over Europe and it is excellent training for anyone thinking of going into radio or television broadcasting.
These young students in journalism will have the unique opportunity to be trained by French professionals and to start their career in a dynamic European environment.
