MONASH journalism 2014 students, Caroline Schelle and Jade Gailberger, have been rewarded with News Corp traineeships after a competitive selection process.
Both journalists begin their traineeships on February 9 this year.
“I’m thrilled to begin my cadetship at News Corp and am looking forward to a fantastic opportunity where my skills are put to the test,” Caroline said.
“I will be rotating through four major News Corp publications including the Herald Sun, The Weekly Times, Leader Community Newspapers and the Geelong Advertiser.”
Caroline said it was a demanding selection process, with hundreds of worthy applicants.
“I believe the skills that I gained at Monash University helped me achieve success,” Caroline said.
“Monash journalism staff have always been supportive about my goals and their focus on practical skills allowed me to get ahead in a competitive field.
“This included a focus on writing news for print and digital publications, radio and television skills and ensuring students undertake independent internships.”
Jade, who will report for The Advertiser in Adelaide, said she felt “very excited and fortunate to be given this opportunity”.
“Starting my cadetship and career with News Corp just a few months out of uni proves that hard work does pay off,” Jade said, who recently finished her journalism training.
“I completed several internships throughout my final year, including placements at the Herald Sun and The Age which wouldn’t have been possible without the support of Monash,” Jade said.
“I can’t thank them enough for their continual advice and time, and it just goes to show that hard work and effort throughout your journalism studies doesn’t go unnoticed.”
Jade advises journalism students to achieve “good grades, gain as much experience as possible to build your portfolio, and always reminding yourself that you will eventually be rewarded for all your effort”.
