Advance Local Newsroom Intern - Summer in Staten Island, New York

Position : Newsroom Intern - Summer

Location : Staten Island, NY

Diversity, Equity and Inclusion are at the core of our mission to strengthen and empower the communities we serve.

This position pays $16.00 per hour.

The Staten Island Advance/ is seeking energetic and enthusiastic students (or recent graduates) who have completed coursework in journalism or communications to spend a semester in our newsroom as part of our paid Intern program.

The Advance/ Internship immerses students in the media industry with real-world work, training and connection-building with working journalists.

Interns have the exciting opportunity to pursue real-time reporting in the field, to learn the systems and tools used by media professionals and to serve our borough as part of our community news team.

Areas of focus for interns may include reporting, writing, photography, social media, videography and/or podcasting.

You will gain experience at a diverse, forward-thinking media organization that is committed to growing a robust digital news report for the Staten Island community.

Internships are offered year-round, and interns work part-time on a schedule that balances school responsibilities.

We welcome students from a broad range of majors and areas of focus, but applicants must be able to demonstrate strong communication skills, both written and verbal. You must also be a self-starter.

Interns often have the opportunity to pursue work in the field, and are responsible for their own transportation to news assignments. Knowing your way around Staten Island is a plus, and you may be required to work in our office on occasion, so - while not required - we are always excited to welcome Staten Island residents, current or former.

Interested candidates should complete an application, and attach a cover letter and resume.

We also welcome inquiries from professors, teachers, and community organizations or groups about connecting talented students with our internship program.
