The Wisconsin Jewish Chronicle is offering a remote journalism internship for college students. The Chronicle has one opening for spring 2023 and one for summer 2023.
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 and have fun.
If you join the Chronicle, your supervisor will be Editor Rob Golub, winner of ten Milwaukee Press Club awards over the last several years and former chief editor of the daily newspaper in Racine, Wis. Golub has been running this internship for more than 15 years. His “graduates” have gone on to work or intern at Facebook, Buzzfeed, MSNBC, Moment magazine, and daily newspapers everywhere.
You can do this internship from anywhere, so long as you have Internet and a laptop. Expect about 10-20 hours of work per week (more in the summer, less during the school year). If you are local, the internship does not need to be remote.
The Chronicle is now accepting applications on a rolling basis. Send your resume, writing samples and current GPA to Chronicle@MilwaukeeJewish.org.
