comments is offering a rare opportunity to an aspiring young journalist. We’re looking for an exceptionally motivated, intelligent and organised undergraduate with a passion for our brand, the world of news, and student life, to come and gain work experience within our Digital team for three months this summer 2013.

This is your chance to come and gain work experience for a national newspaper’s highly performing website, specifically helping us with organising our student news online and create excitement, awareness and engagement about our brand to the student audience.

You need to be social media and digitally savvy and want to pursue a career in journalism, media or marketing.

You must be able to work from Monday 17 June through to 30 August 2013. This is work experience, so it is not a paid opportunity, but your travel and lunch expenses will be covered. You will need to provide a letter from your university, confirming that this work experience placement is beneficial and supports your course.

If you are interested, please send us a short biog, including what university you are at and what year you are expected to graduate. Please include 300 words on why you want to come and gain work experience with us. We’ll be looking at your writing style. Please email
