The Hunter Journalism Program is accepting applications through May 31 for two intern positions starting either this summer or in the fall term.
The positions, which may be for either credit or for work-study for qualifying students, will give interns the opportunity to work closely with journalism faculty on a variety of projects for 4-12 hours a week. The position runs through the fall semester, with an option to continue through next spring.
In the post, interns will report, photograph and write stories for the journalism program website and weekly newsletter, as well as manage social media accounts.
The position will also provide the opportunity to help organize journalism program events, like the biannual Pulitzer Center Talk at the Roosevelt House, and to help host and interact with professional journalists visiting for guest talks and lunches.
