Journalistic training

Would you like a job in which every working day is different? Are you inquisitive, creative and love dealing with people? You have a good feel for the language and can almost always find the right Words?

Then you will complete a two-year training course with us to become an editor.

We, the Verlagsgruppe Passau, are one of the largest publishing houses in Bavaria and publish the Passauer Neue Presse and the Donaukurier. A variety of training stations await you in two local editorial offices of our media company and the departments of the Passau central editorial office. As a volunteer, you will learn the journalistic profession with us from scratch: You will write reports and reports, take photos and layout, shoot web videos or publish the results of your research in print and online. The practical training is supplemented by regular training days and block seminars. As an applicant, you have a university entrance qualification and, ideally, a degree and a journalistic internship. We require broad general knowledge, an interest in socio-political life, mobility and flexibility.

We look forward to you!
