Probably for the first time in the history of journalism internships in India, a media agency is offering its interns a chance to get their articles published on multiple news websites, that too, along with their byline, thumbnail image and an ‘about the author’ introduction.

Yes! This is exactly what’s up for grabs in the journalism internship with India’s leading entertainment PR agency Dale Bhagwagar Media Group.

Dale Bhagwagar Media Group’s unpaid work-from-home journalism internships in content writing are based on work-from-home projects, assigned mainly to students studying journalism, content writing and/or public relations.

The virtual internships have an entry barrier on who the agency chooses to train. There is an entry test all applicants must take. The period of the internship is two months, which is essential for understanding content strategy, journalistic styles and ethics, spin techniques, methods of news writing, formation of content, news angles and news writing formats.

As a virtual intern, the applicant is expected to stay in touch over the phone and on WhatsApp each day for two months and generate two news articles everyday for 60 days. In case the daily articles prepared by the intern meet the journalistic standards of national news websites, the agency speaks to select websites and gets some of them published.

These could be extremely beneficial as reference links for freshers and interns, when seeking a job in mass media professions such as journalism, content writing or PR in future. On successful completion of the internship, the interns get a certificate and a letter of appreciation.
