Weekend news intern - fall 2017
Editorial | New York, NY | Internship
Business Insider is looking breaking news editorial intern to join our news team in NYC this fall. This intern will be primarily working with our weekend editor, so schedule for this 40 hour a week internship is Thursday through Monday.
This intern will help the news editorial team with research and social media promotion, and will have ample opportunities to both write and syndicate news stories.
We need someone who is enthusiastic about social media, curious about tech companies and products, and broadly interested in general business and world news. There will be a mixture of original writing and reporting, as well as setting up wires and syndicated posts.
We're looking for the following:
- Excellent writing skills.
- Someone who is psyched to work with text, photos, video, graphics, and audio — often all in the same story.
- A basic knowledge of the tech industry and business.
- Someone with good time-management skills who thrives in the fast-paced environment of a newsroom.
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, producing, and promoting features and stories — even breaking news if the timing's right.
This internship is paid hourly and can run for up to six months.
