Internship opportunity for Summer 2017

ZeusWolf is an insightful, cool site that is emerging into a household Hip Hop name. We’re a publication that offers interviews, op-ed pieces, articles, new music, concerts, original content, and more. We’ve worked with well-known artists, have had viral Facebook success, and continue to grow daily.

They would love to offer credit to students for writing submissions. This would be a great opportunity for journalism/communication students to get real world experience at a growing publication, and to receive a level of autonomy unobtainable by bigger websites.

Pennsylvania Legislative Correspondents Association — Paid Summer Internship

The Pennsylvania Legislative Correspondents’ Association offers a summer internship program at the state Capitol in Harrisburg, Pa.

The 10-week program for two interns consists of rotations at the following publications: The Allentown Morning Call, Capitolwire.com, LNP Media Group, The Philadelphia Inquirer, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette and Pennlive/Patriot-News.

Interns will assist reporters covering the state budget and report on committee hearings and other political and policy stories in a fast-paced news environment. Interns are expected to pitch their own ideas as well as take assignments on a variety of subjects. Depending on assignment, interns may be required to shoot videos and photos with their phones or other equipment. We are seeking candidates who can produce their own stories, whether writing quickly for the web on a breaking news event or turning around longer enterprise pieces.

Applicants should be college juniors or seniors or graduate students.

Start dates are flexible, but interns are expected to complete the full 10-week program, working five days a week except for July 4. Occasional evening or weekend work may be necessary.

Pay is $500 per week. Interns are expected to provide their own laptops and cell phones. (A small stipend will be provided to offset phone costs.)

Preference is given to students who plan to pursue a career in journalism covering politics and government, though former interns have gone on to cover a wide array of beats at news organizations around the country.

The deadline to apply for the 2017 summer internship is Feb. 15.

Applicants should submit a cover letter, resume and six-to-eight published clips to internship coordinator Karen Langley @ klangley@post-gazette.com.

Hop Magazine Internships

Overview:

We’re a Pittsburgh-based online craft beer magazine launching in January. We see where the industry is headed and we’re interested in staying ahead of the trends. Twenty or thirty-something? Like craft beer? This internship is probably for you.

We’re currently seeking editorial, photography, and design interns. In three months, you’ll learn how to take a story from conception to production and develop a strong online portfolio.

We’re interested in attracting whip smart applicants from diverse backgrounds. Candidates should hate off-flavors with almost as much fervency as typos. Intelligence, inspiration, and a good sense of humor are a must.

To apply, send a cover letter and resumé to jobs@hopculture.com with the subject heading “#internship”. Applicants should also include links or files of 3-5 work samples that give us a clear idea of your skill set(s), ability to problem solve, and your creative approach. Please indicate in your cover letter whether you are older or younger than 21.

 

Culture:

Hop Culture is Pittsburgh-based online magazine covering craft beer. We like social and environmental justice and we’re interested in expanding the industry around quality, inclusivity, and stewardship of the earth. We publish three to five pieces of original content each week and engage with our audience through beer-related events and social media. In the near future, we plan to expand into beer and brewery-related mobile applications.

Dunk360

Dunk360.com, a growing sports media site that is looking to expand its reach into collegiate athletics.  As part of this expansion, we are looking to build a network of college correspondents who can contribute content to our platform – not just for college sports, but also for professional sports and related fashion/entertainment subjects (i.e. sneaker culture).

This is a chance for future sportswriters and those who are simply interested in the sports culture to gain experience and have their work published on a site that already has more than a million views per month.  The application process is open to all, and the writing can be small fun blurbs, memes or longer writings.  This is an opportunity to gain experience as a writer, but the opportunity is far greater than just that.  We offer our interns the opportunity to produce podcasts, create video content, and to learn how to promote their work through search engine optimization and social media outreach. It will be up to you what you write, but we will of course have final approval. This batch of writers and or interns are for the fall semester, so while the internship is unpaid, there is an opportunity to receive school credit as long as the requirements fall within the parameters set by your school.  For interns, there will be a video interview and a writing sample submission before acceptance.

For those looking to get into the sports media, this is an opportunity to experience all aspects of sports coverage, gain exposure, and hopefully find their niche in the industry.  All with interest should feel free to apply, this position is not limited to journalism majors, but writing experience is a plus.  The workload, again, depends on how many of the site’s projects the individual is looking to work on, but at a minimum, we’re asking our interns to submit one or two pieces of content per week.

Anyone who is interested in the position, or has any questions, please feel free to send me an email at seanb@dunk360.com.
