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 15 years. His “graduates” have gone onto Facebook, Buzzfeed, Moment magazine, and daily newspapers everywhere. Interns have included students from some of the most competitive universities in the nation.
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 in the summer. The fall spot is typically around 8-12 hours per week.
The Chronicle is now accepting applications on a rolling basis for the summer and fall 2023 internships, two separate positions. Send your resume, writing samples and current GPA to Chronicle@MilwaukeeJewish.org. Let us know which position you prefer.
