EDITORIAL INTERNSHIPS

| Chicago
Overview:

The Chicago Tribune’s newsroom internship program seeks college juniors, seniors and graduate students for 12-week paid internships. Opportunities will be considered in all newsroom departments:  metro, breaking news, sports, business, graphics, copy editing/design, photo/video and features.  

*Though the date on this job posting may older, please know that we recruit interns year round, and if you’re seeing this posting, then our program is still active.

To be eligible, candidates must have completed at least one internship at a daily news organization other than their college paper.  Additionally,  candidates must be able to work in the United States legally.  Interns will work 40 hours a week and must be able to, and often do, cover major stories their first days on the job.

Send your cover letter, resume, work examples and the names of at least two professional and one school reference to Chicago Tribune Internship Committe at [email protected]  Limit your clips to 5-7 pieces that represent your best work and show your range of experience. We prefer that candidates send clips or links to specific stories rather than linking to a personal web site. Clips give us a chance to see what you believe is your best work. If you do send a link to your personal web site, consider highlighting your best, most-recent work at the top. 

In your cover letter, please specify whether you’re interested in a fall, winter, spring or summer internship and specify whether you are seeking a reporting, editing, photography, design or other type of internship.

Deadlines: The deadline for the highly competitive metro summer reporting internship is Dec. 1. There is no deadline for internships in other departments or for other seasons of the year. However, the earlier you apply, the better your chances may be. It is not uncommon for students to apply in October for an internship the following summer.

If you are interested specifically in opinion writing, the Tribune’s editorial board offers a part-time, paid internship that lasts 12 weeks. Those interested in an editorial board internship should contact Dodie Hofstetter at [email protected]
