Care about the facts? So do we. Since 2007, POLITICO has been committed to non-partisan journalism. We create products and deliver content of consequence; they have the power to change the course of history by making democracy better through our coverage of politics, policy, and power. As long as those intersect, there will be a need for POLITICO and our stories. That’s where you come in.
POLITICO seeks exceptional college students/recent graduates for its editorial internship program. We hire year-round for positions on our magazine, our breaking news desk, our politics desk and our Politico Pro policy teams.
Summer: Nov. 1
Who you are:
Enterprising and creative journalists who want to report, write and research for an audience of political and policy junkies.
Work well under pressure
Have an avid interest in Washington.
What You’ll Need:
Proven experience in a newsroom.
3-5 original clips to showcase your experience.
A letter of recommendation is preferred.
We welcome applicants who are recent graduates. Applicants who are still in school must, at least, be rising juniors. The internship is full-time and based in POLITICO’s Rosslyn, Virginia, headquarters.
Come help us build the story. We check our comfort zones at the door each day to foster innovation, and because we believe in each other’s ambitions, we come together to create something meaningful.
We value our people. We offer a competitive compensation and comprehensive benefits package, including health and wellness benefits, commuter benefits, retirement plans, as well as work-life balance flexibility and opportunities for career development.
