Entry-level jobs @ NBC News

NBC News offers a 1-year training program for recent grads interested in learning newsgathering and production skills. The New York City Area positions begin in late Summer 2009 and pay $33,600 per year.

More than 75 percent of trainees are eventually hired on permanently. Note: this program focuses on news production, not on-air reporting.

"News Associates gain real-world experience honing research skills, developing news stories working in a news bureau, participating in field and studio show production, on the nightly news, a morning news program, cable news, or on a 'magazine' program," the ad states. "Each News Associate is assigned a mentor who is an experienced staff member. News Associates undergo an intense week long orientation filled with workshops, lunches with guest speakers and training."

Deadline to apply is March 27. Apply online.
