The Newsday summer internship program runs for 10 weeks and is designed for college students interested in a media career. We are accepting applications for interns to cover local and breaking news, students interested in working in the opinion section and multimedia journalists. Interns are participants, not merely observers, in the daily process of creating content for the newspaper and the digital products. The summer program includes weekly seminars in which participants join with regular Newsday staff members in informal discussions. Interns will be paid $600 a week and are entitled to reimbursement for job related expenses. Since Newsday operates seven days a week, interns can expect their hours to fluctuate.
Internship opportunities include:
Local and breaking news intern: Report and write daily Long Island news stories and news features; contribute to breaking news coverage.
Opinion section intern: Assist editorial staff with researching and writing opinion pieces.
Multimedia intern: Shoot news events and learn Newsday’s editing software system.
- You must be a junior, senior or graduate student enrolled in a degree program as of December 2018.
- At least one previous internship at a daily newspaper, magazine or website.
- Interns must have a valid driver’s license and a car.
