This assignment is one of our more challenging ones, yet it represents a truly rewarding opportunity for personal development.

Our Goose reporter will investigate matters that relate to the Iranian threats of developing an atomic weapon, and use satire to cover the story.

You will be able to see and witness a post communism state that is going through a power transition, one that provides an entirely new set of challenges every day. The Correspondent Intern will live off the land and use survival as your main defense, while simultaneously providing The Goose with three satirical stories every week.
Required Skills: Procuring daily sustenance, an exceptional level of pain tolerance, long distance running capabilities to avoid capture / imprisonment, high-level contacts in the diplomatic world which may be required as a bargaining chip in order to secure one’s personal freedom.
