For many, getting a job at either of these institutions would be the ultimate start to a career, and competition will be seriously fierce for about ten positions (this year, ABC – eight and SBS – two).
An article from The Newsroom in 2012, demonstrates how tough it is to get in, and also shows that the number of positions made available can change each year. Aside from outstanding interpersonal skills, both look for experience and a demonstrated interest in current affairs. Experience can come from university projects and community work experience – so final year students can (and will) also apply.
