Student opportunities

There’s nothing like hands-on work experience to hone your skills and make you more employable.

Work experience, job opportunities and information about awards and events are posted here regularly for the information of Curtin Journalism students.


Australian finance news site HotCopper is looking for two to five journalism students who will be successful in providing the following:

  1. Thrive in a busy, newsroom environment
  2. Are quick thinkers and can produce a good news copy – fast
  3.  Individuals who work well under a tight deadline and produce 8-10 news articles per day
  4. People who are “standouts” in business and/or finance Journalism – but don’t need to be
  5. Individuals who work well individually, but can collaborate efficiently in a team space
  6.  People who are organised and constantly seek to meet deadlines

This type of work will be based on a paid internship where undergraduates or graduates will be paid for their time in the office.

Along with the opportunity of having their work recognised, students will also have their work published with a byline.

The contracts HotCopper are offering are for one month basis (subject to extension) and are up to two full business days (9-4pm).

For more information or to express interest please contact Branka Duric:
