Exciting workplace in the middle of the city: There are free places for trainees in the media group of Münchner Merkur and tz. We look forward to receiving your applications!

Looking for your dream job? Then you'll be like Regina Mittermeier (29) and Thomas Jensen (25) after their studies. The two have found what they are looking for: in the media group Münchner Merkur tz. Regina works as a print editor in the Munich & Bavaria editorial department, Thomas is a print trainee in the sports department. Anyone who is curious about the journalist's job: Here Regina and Thomas chat about their everyday editorial work.

Thomas: Servus Regina, where are you from?
Regina: I was up in the Munich City Hall. For our Advent series, we take a look behind secret Munich doors that are usually closed. And I was allowed to open the door to the carillon in the town hall. Thomas: And what does it look like up there? Is it possible to see Marienplatz from there through the carillon?
Regina: Exactly, it's pretty funny to see all the tourists from the other side. What's on your agenda? Thomas: I'm not on the road today. I was on the phone with a biathlete who finished second in the World Cup in Östersund, Sweden. Justus Strelow, if he tells you something.
Regina: Ah, I've heard of it. Do you know all the athletes well personally?
Thomas: It varies. Many of them are more likely to be on the phone. But now, for example, the Biathlon World Cup is in Hochfilzen, where you can see each other in person and get into conversation better. Of course, these are the highlights of being on site at such events.
Regina: Where have you been?
Thomas: In winter sports at many biathlon or ski world cups in the area. For example, in Ruhpolding, Sölden or Kitzbühel. But in summer also at the 24 Hours of Le Mans. But I think you're out and about even more often in the local area – aren't you?
Regina: Almost every day. We have a lot of appointments in the city. But often we have to go spontaneously.
Thomas: When was the last time you spontaneously had to go somewhere quickly?
Regina: Just the other day, we needed a photo of a crime scene.
Thomas: Luckily, my appointments can usually be planned... Regina: Yes, it can be stressful at times. But most of the time I can still read up on the topic on the way. We support each other well as a team – and that's why I love the job. Being outside, talking to people, knowing what's going on.
Thomas: I totally understand. To sit in the front row at sporting events instead of just in front of the TV. When the event is outside, in the fresh air – wonderful. In my opinion, other office jobs can't keep up with that.
Regina: Especially in the Volo there is even more variety. Do you still come to our restaurant?
Thomas: No, I've already had my desired months in the other editorial offices. For example, I was in the politics department, where I learned a lot.
Regina: I also found the courses at the Academy of the Bavarian Press helpful. Thomas: What was your favorite course?
Regina: Photojournalism. It's totally practical, because I'll probably be taking pictures myself at the appointment tonight. Our photographers are working elsewhere.
Thomas: Oh, too bad. I thought we could go for a drink with the other Volos afterwards.
. Regina: Unfortunately, it doesn't work. But on Monday, of course! That's when I have a day off – as a compensatory day for my last Sunday service.
