2023 INTERNSHIP APPLICATIONS NOW BEING ACCEPTED
The Dow Jones News Fund invites college students to apply for paid summer 2023 internships in data journalism, digital media, business reporting and multiplatform editing. The application deadline is Nov. 14.
The News Fund will select college journalists for internships with more than 50 news organizations across the country. Those selected will also benefit from week-long, pre-internship training, $1,500 scholarships, memberships to journalism groups and access to the DJNF alumni network for jobs and mentoring.
To be considered, students must apply by Nov. 14, and take a timed, online qualifying test. There are five training tracks. Students may apply for one or more.
- Audience Engagement (NEW!): Learn the art of social media and audience development at every step of the process. This includes understanding analytics and developing a strategy, SEO best practices, graphic design for social media, photo selection and editing, AP Style and news judgment, newsletters and news curation and finding user-generated content and trending topics on social media.
- Business Reporting: Sharpen your reporting skills telling the stories of entrepreneurs, mergers and acquisitions, workers and labor unions, tech startups, Black-owned businesses, stocks and bonds, cryptocurrency, real estate and much more. Spend a week learning key elements of the business beat from the best in the business.
- Data Journalism: Spend next summer asking tough questions, digging into government records and building interactive data visualizations that reveal untold stories. At the DJNF data journalism program, interns learn computer-assisted reporting as well as how to analyze and clean data and make Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests.
- Digital Media: Learn how to flex your digital skills next summer. This program covers a little bit of everything—from creating engaging visual and audio content to analyzing web traffic and social media to learning the latest storytelling techniques—to make sure you are ready to jump into a rapidly evolving media ecosystem.
- Multiplatform Editing: If you love language and are passionate about fact-checking, grammar and spelling, you have a future in editing. Editors assess copy for accuracy, completeness, tone and style, write headlines and design pages. During the training, interns hone their visual design, headline writing and SEO skills, strengthen their news judgment and publish high quality content on deadline.
College sophomores, juniors, seniors and graduate students enrolled full time are eligible to apply, including December graduates. U.S. students studying abroad and international students already in the U.S. with work visas are also eligible.
Students must take the online test and submit a resume, unofficial transcript, three to five clips of their work or links to their work and a 500-word essay: “Tell us about a time you learned a life lesson the hard way.”
2023 MAGAZINE INTERNSHIP APPLICATIONS DUE BY DECEMBER
ASME is now accepting applications for the 2023 Magazine Internship Program. The deadline to apply is Dec. 1, 2022. Information about the Magazine Internship Program is at asmeinternship.org.
This year the Magazine Internship Program expects to offer 20 students the opportunity to intern at magazines and websites primarily in New York. Students who have been nominated by academic departments and career-guidance offices are given preference over other applicants from the same school. The UConn journalism department can nominate two students.
For over 50 years, the American Society of Magazine Editors has sponsored the Magazine Internship Program—a ten-week program for rising college seniors at magazines in New York and Washington. Since the program was founded in 1967, 2,000 college students have worked as ASME interns. Nearly 500 have gone on to successful careers in print and electronic journalism.
Only 10 percent of all Magazine Internship Program applicants are accepted. ASME interns have distinguished academic records and usually have extensive experience working on city and regional magazines as well as college publications.
ASME interns participate in a two-day orientation program and learn the fundamentals of reporting, fact checking and copy editing. Over the course of the summer, ASME interns attend special events in New York and Washington and meet regularly with top editors.
ASME interns report, edit, fact-check and copy-edit for print and online publications. They may sometimes interview celebrities, attend press conferences and work the red carpet—but most of the summer they do the “un-glam” but essential work of magazine journalism.
Bloomberg News reports on the issues that matter to financial and business professionals – when they happen, and where they happen. As an intern, you will have the opportunity to gain hands-on reporting experience. You may report on markets, companies, economies and governments. Responsibilities may include pitching and writing enterprise stories, conducting exclusive interviews and collaborating with our other media platforms.
Prospective interns need:
- Prior experience and/or demonstrated interest in journalism through work experience or extracurricular activities
- Ability to work collaboratively in a team environment
- A passion for global financial markets, companies and economies
- Availability to work for 10 weeks, 40 hours per week, beginning in June 2023
- Minimum two years of undergraduate study completed
- Fluency in a foreign language is a plus, but not required
- Resume, cover letter, and preferably three samples of journalistic work on any platform
