Summary

TV & Print Journalism Internship

INTRODUCTION

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!
