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.

The Bulletin, the monthly newspaper of the Bloomfield-Garfield Corporation, is seeking an intern for the spring semester. Strong candidates will have excellent written and oral communication skills and the ability to work both independently and collaboratively.

Intern Duties:

• Create content for monthly newspaper and newsletter
• Utilize knowledge of AP Style
• Monitor and update the BGC’s social media platforms (Facebook, Twitter, and Nextdoor)
• Find and compile events listings for the Bulletin
• Cover local events and conduct interviews
• Assist with design and layout tasks

“As an intern at the Bloomfield-Garfield Corporation, I received valuable experience creating content for a print publication and promoting a non-profit through social media. The internship will provide a student with many clips to use in the pursuit of future opportunities. During my time at the Bulletin, I was given a variety of opportunities to showcase my writing skills and other abilities. This is not an internship making copies and fetching coffee! As a small publication, the Bulletin offers students the ability to participate in many tasks relevant to print and digital media. The spring intern will also get to know the Pittsburgh neighborhoods of Bloomfield, Friendship, Garfield, East Liberty, Lawrenceville, and Stanton Heights through the lens of community development and local journalism. Working closely with the editor of the Bulletin, Andrew, will give the chosen applicant the opportunity to learn about layout, news writing, and copy editing.”  — Kathleen Fennell, Fall 2015 intern
