INSIDER editorial intern, breaking news

Editorial | New York, NY | Internship

Job Description

INSIDER is hiring a paid editorial intern to cover breaking news, beginning immediately.

Interns on the news team publish stories like “Les Moonves, CEO of CBS, is out after 6 more women accused him of sexual harassment, assault” and “Collins defends her vote for Kavanaugh despite Christine Blasey Ford's allegations: 'I do not believe that Brett Kavanaugh was her assailant,'” researching, writing, and producing content every day on the news as it happens. Interns are an integral part of our team, and collaborate with reporters, producers, social media editors, and other people across the newsroom. This intern will help us cover news that breaks over the weekend and three days during the week, working a schedule that includes weekend hours.

We’re looking for an intern with the following:

  • Excellent writing skills
  • A passion for storytelling
  • Interest in reporting on general news
  • Familiarity with digital and social media
  • Ability to work at a fast pace
  • Willingness to work weekends 

Experience writing for a news site helps, as do copyediting skills and light HTML and photo experience. You should be a voracious news reader who is eager to learn the ins and outs of a digital newsroom.

This is a paid internship based out of our New York office. Interns are encouraged to work 40 hours a week, and internships run for six months.

INSIDER is great journalism about what passionate people actually want to know. That’s everything from news to food, celebrity to science, politics to sports and all the rest. It’s smart. It’s fearless. It’s fun. We push the boundaries of digital storytelling. Our mission is to inform and inspire.
