We're looking for:

Journalists with a sharp pen and a keen nose for news who wish to produce news stories, journalistic reports and interviews.  

A video reporter who is not afraid to appear on camera, accost fellow students on campus and create video reports on student life in Rotterdam and other subjects.

A camera person and/or video editor who goes on the road with a reporter to shoot footage for a great story and/or is able to create quick montages for EM’s video productions.

In a perfect world, you would already have some experience of your chosen field, but that is not a hard requirement. It is much more important that you aspire to be a journalist, love visuals or written work and have a flair for either. We also expect you to be available for the entire 2021-2022 academic year to work on a story at least once or twice per month.

We're offering:

An interesting side job in which you can gain experience and explore whether a career in journalism is your cup of tea. You will be granted a financial allowance for your contributions to EM. You will be supervised by professional journalists and will join a wonderful, socially engaged and sharp-witted team.

Interested in joining us?
