To accomplish my under graduate program, I had to do my internship in any print or visual media. So, remaining with my concentration, I preferred to join in a news paper. I joined in the Editorial department of The Daily Star as an intern on 15th May, 2014 and worked for three months till 15th August, 2014. During this time of my internship I observed the ins and outs works of The Daily Star department involved with writing and editing articles. Editorial department mainly deals with two pages; ‘Editorials’ and ‘Op-ed’. As I worked in the editorial department, I have learnt the process of editing and other works related to it. Thus, this internship report mainly focuses on the process of editing articles and techniques and troubles related to this work which I have gone through during this internship. I have divided this paper into three major chapters. First chapter will take a look at the history of The Daily Star and how it became a name. The second chapter focuses on the value of news and the power of mass media in the age of globalization. The chapter continues by attaching my experience during the time of my internship at The Daily Star. The third chapter will then look at the process of editing from my experience. Overall, this report will shed light on things that I have learnt through trial and error and by the guidance of the editorial board at The Daily Star. I hope this paper will be a help to the new interns who wish to embark on their internship life. This paper should also be beneficial to the study of journalism and the work editing.
