Journalism internship – write and learn – summer or spring 2025

The Wisconsin Jewish Chronicle is offering a remote journalism internship for college students. The Chronicle has openings for summer 2025 (part time), and for spring 2025 (half time) during the school year.

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 appreciate published work samples from outside academia. 

This is an unpaid position, with a nonprofit, that will give you writing and reporting experience. You will learn a lot and have fun. 

If you join the Chronicle, your supervisor and mentor 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 about 20 years. His “graduates” have gone onto Facebook, Buzzfeed, Moment magazine, respected digital news outlets, and daily newspapers everywhere. Interns have included students from some of the most competitive universities in the nation. Our interns have served as top editors at the college newspapers of leading universities. 

You can do this internship from anywhere, so long as you have internet and a laptop. Expect about 20 hours of work per week in the summer. The spring spot is typically around 8-12 hours per week. We can work around your school schedule.

This internship includes a Sustainable Journalism workshop. You will learn how to create a more financially sustainable journalism product. Golub has written about this for Poynter.

We seek bright students who are enthusiastic about journalism and have demonstrated a commitment to work or learning. You do not need to know how to be a journalist to do this internship – we meet you at your level of knowledge. 

The Chronicle is now accepting applications on a rolling basis for the summer and spring 2025 internships, two separate positions. Send your resume, writing samples and current GPA to Let us know which position you prefer.
