2023 Newsroom Summer Internship Program: Reporters
**APPLICATION DEADLINE: NOVEMBER 1, 2022 11:59 P.M. (Eastern Standard Time)**
The Boston Globe summer internship program began more than 60 years ago as an opportunity for college students interested in journalism to gain practical experience at a major news organization.
The largest group of interns works in the News Department as general assignment reporters. Other intern reporters will be hired for the Business, Sports, and Living/Arts departments. We also have intern positions in the Photography and Design departments, and on the News copy desk. Internships are NOT limited to students with journalism majors.
- All students currently enrolled in an undergraduate program
- Graduating college seniors (May or June 2023 graduation date)
- Enrolled journalism graduate school students (with no professional journalism experience)
An aptitude for journalism is the most important qualification for applicants. However, a previous internship is recommended. Applicants must have a driver’s license and should be comfortable driving as our interns cover stories from all over New England.
Summer interns work as full-time employees for 12 weeks. Interns are paid a weekly wage and work-shifts vary. There is a writing coach for the reporting interns, and discussions with editors and staff on a range of journalism topics for all of the interns.
REQUIRED: Please submit an essay (up to 400 words) on ONE of the subjects below, indicating the topic chosen at the top of your essay.
(A) A memorable moment in your life
(B) The best or worst story you've written and why
(C) Someone who has influenced you greatly
WRITING SAMPLES: You may upload up to 10 work samples as PDFs or Word documents.
NO LINKS TO STORIES ACCEPTED!
