Politics editorial intern

Editorial | New York, NY | Internship

Job Description

Business Insider's Politics vertical is looking for a paid intern in our Manhattan office. 

If you're already following legislation announcements, tuning in to Trump's meetings, and staying up on the latest that Congressional men and women are Tweeting about, this is the internship for you. 

As an intern at Business Insider, there's no getting coffee, filing, or making copies.

Our interns are an integral part of our team. Many of our current writers and editors started as interns.

BI Interns spend their time doing meaningful work: researching, writing, pitching and producing features -- even breaking news if the timing's right.

We're looking for the following: 

  • Excellent writing skills
  • Thorough understanding of political news and current events
  • Journalism background and interest in social media are a plus. 

Interns are encouraged to work full-time (40 hours a week) if their schedule allows. The internship runs for 6 months, with flexibility on start and end dates.

APPLY HERE with a resume and cover letter if this sounds like your dream internship, and specify why you're interested in covering politics.
