As well as being a PR/Communications/journalism student, the successful candidate must be an avid consumer of Australian media.  If you do not have a basic understanding of news, in all of its forms (TV, online, magazines, radio, newspapers, social media etc), you will not be considered for this position.  In your cover letter, it is essential you can demonstrate your interest in news media.

You will not be expected to know every single outlet or social media channel, but you must have an appreciation and want to learn.   It goes without saying, you must have excellent writing skills to be considered. 

As the role will eventually involve speaking with media, the person must also have an outgoing personality, confidence and mature phone manner. Do not apply for this position if you do not have fire in the belly and an unstoppable demeanour.
