TV & Print Journalism Internship
Dramatic, landlocked Mongolia has been tipped by economists to become one of the fastest-growing economies in the next decade, and Mongolians are eager to learn English and gain exposure to Western culture and media. Mongolian television networks currently offer a variety of programming, from Mongolian-style videos to probing documentaries, yet programmers are eager to add a Western flavour to their programmes, from set designs to proper English pronunciation.
The TV & Print Journalism Internship programme places you either with a Mongolian TV channel or a major Newspaper. You can also choose to take part in both projects, back to back. The TV station has been producing music and entertainment shows there for the last six years. Besides information and entertainment, the station aims to target at-risk youth through programming that warns them about the dangers of drug and alcohol abuse.
You will help create content, shoot and edit videos and documentaries and will help work on the floor during newscasts. Helping staff members with their spoken English will be an important part of your role. This is a very hands-on position in which you will work directly with the Director and the production team. For those looking to jumpstart a career in TV or Print production and are interested in cross-cultural exchange this opportunity can’t be beat!
At the TV station you will get involved in the following types of activities:
Preparation of various general entertainment and youth programmes
Come up with new ideas for programmes, with full creative license offered to ‘Westernize’ current programme style and content
Assist in the editing & recording of TV programmes
Proof reading of scripts and documents
Teach English language and culture to the local staff
If you choose to go to the Newspaper, they need your help in the following;
Preparation of articles and content, as required on a daily basis.
Come up with new ideas to ‘westernize’ the content, format and style of the newspaper.
Assist in the editing & proof reading of content.
Opportunities for photojournalism, and to follow reporters into the field.
Teach the English language and culture to the local staff.
