Every year we receive more than 1000 applications from all over the world from highly qualified candidates who speak a number of languages. They're prepared to go through a rigorous application process in order to become one of the 12 aspiring journalists chosen for our journalism traineeship.

The application process has four stages and involves DW directors, chief editors and top DW journalists. We're not looking for perfect up-and-coming journalists but for young, open-minded candidates who have initial journalistic experience and are wanting to help shape Deutsche Welle as it evolves.

Applications for the DW International Traineeship starting in September 2019 are now closed. We are currently not accepting any applications.
