Applications for the bilingual (German-English) traineeship are open from October 23, 2023 (12 p.m. UTC+2) until November 27, 2023 (12 p.m. UTC+1). Applications must be submitted online only and within the given time frame, using the application link on our e-Recruitment Portal.

Before you apply you should read all available information and guidelines about the International Traineeship in the FAQ's!

The traineeship will start in January, 2025 and end in June, 2026.

Applicants come from all over the world, speak several languages and have diverse qualifications. Deutsche Welle's rigorous annual application process has several rounds. In the final round, a committee selects twelve aspiring journalists who are especially well-suited for the program. The committee members include the DW Director General, DW's Program Director, DW's Editor-in-Chief, and prominent DW journalists.   

We're not looking for perfect, well-established journalists but for young, open-minded candidates with initial journalistic experience or special expertise who want to help shape the future of Deutsche Welle.
