Updated: Journalism jobs in Canada: where to find them

It’s only fall but it’s already that time of year when J-schoolers start applying for summer jobs. Don’t know where to look? Here are a few paid jobs with deadlines that are coming up.

Globe and Mail (Deadline noon ET, Friday, Oct. 25, 2013)
The Globe and Mail is looking to hire reporters, digital/video/multimedia editors, copy editors and others for the summer of 2014. Interviews will be conducted a few weeks after Friday’s deadline. More details.

Toronto Star (Deadline Nov. 1, 2013)
The Toronto Star offers young journalists internships in the Radio Room and Summer Reporting programs. The Summer Reporting internship is a demanding 12-week program because summer journalists are hired on vacation replacement contracts — meaning that as full-time staff disappear on vacations, summer interns are expected to step up to the demands of replacing them. The Radio Room requires strong reporting and phone interview skills and the ability to work quickly and accurately. Radio room reporters monitor emergency scanners, do police checks, monitor radio and television news as well as websites and social media. They report stories that are often crime or trauma related. In addition to writing for the newspaper, radio room reporters file breaking news stories and updates to the website in addition to writing for the newspaper. More details.

Bloomberg (Deadline Nov. 15)
Bloomberg News interns will gain hands-on experience reporting for the print department of one the world’s leading financial news services during a paid 10-week program beginning in June. More details.

In addition, J-Source rounded up a bunch of links to Canadian and international job boards back in 2009, most of which are still working. One final helpful resource: blogger That Eric Alper regularly posts media and arts jobs listings.
