Is there a Guild member looking ahead to 2021 and hoping that the expected return to normality will allow them to take on an intern?
If so, Adrian Bell, who handles ENAJ’s international liaison, would like to hear from you.
Adrian’s been approached by a budding agricultural journalist who’s currently in the second year of a three-year course at AgrosupDijon in Dijon, France. As part of the course, students are expected to do a 20-week internship within Europe, but outside France.
“The student has a particular interest in writing, so she’s keen to make the most of the internship by pursuing an opportunity to explore the field of agricultural journalism,” says Adrian.
“Ideally, she’s looking for the opportunity to shadow a journalist team in a project and would like to produce one or more articles for an industry magazine or other media outlet during the course of her internship. At a personal level, she’s also keen to refine her writing skills, potentially gain experience in a range of forms of media production and more generally to have an immersive experience in a relevant professional environment.
“Her course encompasses all aspects of agronomy and agriculture, covering both the technical and theoretical aspects of growing crops and animal breeding, agricultural policies and elements of economics and sociology focused on the farming industry.
“An English speaker, she’s fluent in French and has both British and French citizenship so Brexit presents no hurdles!”
If any Guild member has an ability to offer her a role, either for the whole internship period or part of it, please contact Adrian.
