I loved working at The Globe because you’re treated as a staff reporter from the moment you walk in. Be prepared to start writing a story on your first day because there is no training or shadowing. I was given two or three stories a week, mainly for the Toronto section. I had to go out to cover four of them, one was a breaking news story, while the rest were done through phone interviews.

The Globe covers your taxi fare if you’re asked to go somewhere far to cover something and you also get paid $125/week. The staff are welcoming, but since you’re working independently, you don’t get to work with anyone apart from the editors. It’s also difficult to land a job there after the internship because they make it clear that they only hire experienced journalists, not interns.
