The Conversation currently has internship opportunities for students studying at any of the website’s member universities as well recent graduates.

Internships will be at The Conversation’s newsroom located in Melbourne. Intensive holiday-period internships are available for those who reside interstate.

Applications will close at the end of September. Applicants need to ensure they are available to attend a compulsory induction on Friday October 24 from 10am-1pm if they’re successful (interstate applicants are exempt from this induction).

A good news sense, great social media, organisational and editorial skills are essential qualities of successful applicants.

The Conversation is an “independent source of news and views, sourced from the academic and research community”. Since its launch in 2011, the website has grown to be one of the largest commentary websites in Australia, featuring analysis from experts in the fields of science, arts, politics, environment and more.
