The Wisconsin Jewish Chronicle is offering a remote journalism internship for college students. The Chronicle has one opening for fall 2020.
Full-time jobs and other internships often require or prefer previous professional experience. The Chronicle internship is designed to provide you with a good rung on that ladder. You will publish work samples that you can show to prospective employers. Journalism organizations tend to prefer published work samples from outside academia.
This is an unpaid position that will give you writing and reporting experience. You will learn a lot.
If you join the Chronicle, your supervisor will be Editor Rob Golub, winner of ten Milwaukee Press Club awards over the last four years and former chief editor of the daily newspaper in Racine, Wis. Golub has been running this internship for 15 years. His “graduates” have gone onto Facebook, Buzzfeed and daily newspapers everywhere.
You can do this internship from anywhere, so long as you have Internet and a laptop. Expect about 5-10 hours of work per week during school.
The Chronicle is now accepting applications on a rolling basis for a 2020 fall internship. Send your resume, writing samples and current GPA to Chronicle@MilwaukeeJewish.org.
