Paid Digital Internship for an Alberta Student – It Could Be You!

Wednesday, 23 November 2016 10:48

Are you interested in working in a digital field after you graduate? Currently registered in a relevant post-secondary program in Alberta? Passionate about all things Internet? We might have just the internship for you!

This is the only time that you'll read Make money working from home and should believe it.

We're looking for a student to join our team of board members for 40 hours a month starting this December. And YES! It's paid. You can work virtually from anywhere in Alberta (most of us are located in Calgary and Edmonton, but no matter). We'll need you to be available during business hours for some tasks, but there's also an opportunity to complete hours on evenings and weekends as well. We know things can get hairy around exam time, and we can work around that.

Newspaper Internship Program for Students

Monday, 21 November 2016 13:10

The C.A. MacLean Foundation in conjunction with the Alberta Weekly Newspapers Association will be introducing an internship program for students looking to broaden their horizons in the newspaper industry. We are reaching out to schools across Alberta in hopes that they can assist us in getting this information out to their students for consideration, whether that be posting the brochure/application form to an internal bulletin board, sharing the link to the Internship Program on our website, or sharing the information with a student or instructor you may think would be interested. Any support with this would be greatly appreciated as we are hoping to reach as many students as possible to give them the opportunity to apply.

The C.A. MacLean Foundation is sponsoring two ten-week internships during the summer of 2017 for journalism students. The internship program will allow students to learn first-hand the importance of community journalism, having them work alongside the editors, reporters and photographers of the community newspapers in Alberta or Northwest Territories. It is the foundation's hope that this inaugural program will carry-over and become an annual sponsorship, helping to cultivate the next generation of great journalists.

Students do not have to be a journalism or communications major to be eligible, though first consideration will be given to those academic streams. Students should have completed their first year of post-secondary education. An application form must be completed in full and include both the student's resume (referencing any part time work, internships, activities, scholarships/awards) and samples of writing. Completion of the form and additional information does not constitute an application of acceptances into this program.

All of the information regarding the internship program can be found on our website at

We hope you can pass this information and application along to your students for consideration; the student application deadline is Tuesday, January 31, 2017.
