The Boston Globe runs one of the top summer internship programs in the nation, giving 10 interns the opportunity to work as reporters, as well as photographers, designers or copy editors.
The 12-week paid internship places reporter-interns in our Metro, Business, Living/Arts and Sports departments; the photo intern shoots stills and video for all sections, the design intern creates sections fronts and information graphics for print and online, and the copy editing intern works on local, national, foreign and business copy. The newspaper provides guidance and direction, as well as a writing coach dedicated to interns. Globe interns produce every day and finely polish their journalism skills over the summer.
Summer interns work as full-time employees for 12 weeks and are paid a weekly wage.
The Boston Globe 2014 summer internship program is open to students in the Houston SPJ chapter region. All students currently enrolled in an undergraduate program or who will be graduating in May or June may apply, as well as journalism graduate school students who have NOT had professional journalism experience.
The application deadline is Nov. 1. More information on the program and an application can be accessed from www.bostonglobe.com/newsintern.
