What a great privilege would it be to have your voice heard handling programs on the radio live! The opportunity is right here in STAESA's Media Program
Our media program exposes you to investigative journalism work in Africa. STAESA media program supports and promote on the job training aimed at current or future media professionals. The program is very educational with busy schedules (learning at the same time having hands-on experience on the job is what everyone wants). From the first day you arrived on the program till you leave you will always be taking through training to add to what you already know and also have the opportunity to handle schedules on your own. That really makes our media program very interesting and rewarding. The program is both office and field work.
Interns get the opportunity to work with newspapers, magazines and radio stations. Not only does the program expose interns to the unique nature of media work in Africa, it also gives you an opportunity to gain more experience in programming, production, recording, research, reporting, and much more. Meeting and talking to friendly people including celebrities in Africa make you feel really at home and have lots of fun. Interns will be scheduled for all the departments at the radio station to enable you have a feel of what happens in these departments.
PROGRAM ACTIVITIES INCLUDE: JOURNALISM, REPORTING, RESEARCH, DESIGNING, PRODUCTION, LAYOUT, PHOTOGRAPHY, ADMINISTRATIVE WORK AND MARKETING SKILLS.
