On our Journalism placements, you do not only get an insider's view of how publications are run but also the exposure that comes with it.

 

If you are already a working journalist or a student, this is a chance to broaden your horizon and enhance your resume with work experience in a different culture and society, or maybe a different medium.

 

 

Job Duties of Newspaper Journalists
Journalists work in newsrooms and in the field, observing, taking good notes, cultivating sources, analysing events objectively and quickly writing accurate articles. Newspaper journalists may investigate issues to find the story behind the story, and they need to be well-versed in the laws related to the framework for the press. Some newspaper journalists are given general assignments, special assignments or a regular beat to cover, while others focus on a specific category of news, such as politics, foreign affairs, sports or finances.

Covering breaking developments, gathering facts, conducting interviews and writing clear and concise articles for publication. Curiosity and writing abilities are key traits for aspiring Newspaper Journalists, but a Bachelor of Arts in Journalism is required for many entry-level positions.

Although exact duties and responsibilities will vary from role to role and between radio, television and the internet, broadcast journalists will generally be involved in many of the following duties, on a daily basis:

 

generating ideas for stories/features and following leads from news agencies, the police, the public, press conferences and other sources;

Entrepreneurship Trainin AspectsThe goals of entrepreneurial schools (career schools) are to teach upcoming entrepreneurs specific skills and as such have been better considered to be an institution devoted to training, education as well as expose ‘will be young people to the “real world” of business by taking them on field trips to local business offices. During these exposures the students are able to identify and develop their business start up potential.

 

While many entrepreneurs make starting a new company look easy, entrepreneurship is actually difficult and tricky, as many new ventures can easily fail because of improper knowledge and direction. We volunteers to play a key role in enabling our young entrepreneurs connect their classroom and workshop experiences to the “real world.”

 

Volunteers become part of the class sessions and workshop either to understudy or to present a lesson on their area of professional expertise or share their own experiences as a student or entrepreneur. Class sessions and workshop are based on the curriculum and syllabus outlined by the school. Encouraging entrepreneurship has become an accepted wisdom in economic development and government policy.

This entrepreneurial studies approach, which was started in the USA and has currently spread across the world, which is an action learning approach as well as an excellent vehicle for teaching business studies.

 

What skills or qualifications do I need?
In order to ensure high standards and help the project progress, the volunteer intern needs a Bachelors Degree in Business Management or equivalent. The volunteer intern should be confident, outgoing, friendly and creative, as well as have the patience required when working with less experienced students and adapting to the challenges of a developing country like Ghana.
