Graduating students from Addis Ababa University’s School of Journalism and Communication (AAU-SJC) made an official visit to Capital Newspaper’s Headquarters to gain practical experience on how the newspaper business functions. The visit was organized to provide students with an insight into how newspapers are planned, printed and delivered first hand.
The participants had the opportunity to have a one-on-one discussion with Capital’s editorial team and discuss pertinent questions such as editorial balance and ethics, the process of producing and selecting news content, newspaper advertisements, photo journalism and newspaper design and layouts. The students were provided with a clear and comprehensive briefing by the Deputy Editor-in-Chief, Teguest Yilma, on Capital Newspaper’s journey since its establishment 15 years ago. The challenges and opportunities of the profession were explained to the students who are up for graduation in July this year. “Being a journalist can be very challenging as it requires immense energy and passion, but there are also great opportunities to be had. This profession opens up a lot of doors normally closed to others and you get to meet a lot of interesting people; as journalists, you will have firsthand information and information is power,” Teguest explained.
The students expressed their appreciation for the opportunity Capital provided to get a practical understanding of their education and their chosen profession.
Capital is celebrating its 15th Anniversary this year with a series of events. On April 16th, the Newspaper launched its Anniversary celebrations with a debate and seminar held at the AAU Eshetu Chole building of the Faculty of Business and Economics (FBE). The event aimed at encouraging discussions and foster creative thinking, as well as motivate journalism students being educated in Ethiopian universities and other learning institutions. It became a platform for discussions on the development of journalism in Africa and a look at the past, the present and the direction the profession needs to take in the future.
The program was held with the collaboration of the School of Communication and Journalism (SJC) of Addis Ababa University (AAU).
