Typical roles for remote journalism internships

Here are a few examples of roles that our virtual journalism interns have taken on before:

  • Social Media

    Internships in journalism in the USA frequently focus on the intersection of social media and news. Interns gain experience writing for small screens and translating content into digestible bites for Twitter, Instagram, and other platforms. As the news world becomes increasingly digital and more people use social media as their primary news source, these skills are incredibly valuable for young journalists.

  • Research

    From identifying reliable sources to fact-checking data, research is a key element of any journalism career. Interns work closely with writers and editors across the organization, and may get to pitch and draft their own stories based on their research. In some organizations, interns also gain experience researching audience trends and analyzing content impact.

  • Newsletters

    Most major outlets today rely on a daily newsletter to compile their top stories and get them in front of readers. Interns will learn to interpret reader data to identify big-impact stories, and to write short synopses of articles for use in digital newsletters. Of course, some interns may also pitch and write their own trend or feature stories for newsletters themselves.

  • Podcasting

    In the United States, daily and weekly podcasts are one of the top ways people consume news. Interns with experience editing audio can take on roles with an organization’s multimedia team, and assist in the production of journalistic podcasts.

The journalism industry

Journalism is a fast-paced and often controversial industry. News has always played an important role in the world, but the way people consume news is changing. Blogs, videos, and social media posts are just important in today’s newsrooms as online magazines, and maybe more important than newspapers. As the industry continues to change, one thing remains the same: prior experience and a strong portfolio of work is essential to success in a journalism career.
