Company Name:Star Tribune
Internship Available:Newsroom Summer Internships
Distance from St. Cloud:61 - 100 Miles from St. Cloud State University
Company Overview:The Star Tribune newsroom offers one of the best summer internship programs available in our industry. We proudly produce the nation's 8th largest Sunday newspaper and 13th largest daily newspaper. With more than 6 million unique visitors and 85 million pageviews per month, startribune.com is Minnesota’s largest website by far. Moreover, the Twin Cities of Minneapolis and St. Paul consistently rank among the best places to live. We select candidates for paid 10-week internships each summer. The program targets college and graduate students interested in pursuing careers as reporters, copy editors, photographers, multimedia producers and designers. We'll have a dozen interns in the program. Interns are paid the same as a first-year professional, which is $692 a week for the summer of 2013. This opportunity allows students to get real-world experience in a major daily news environment. It can also help with future employment prospects. Over the years, we have hired several of our summer interns into professional-level jobs. Our interns are assigned mentors, in addition to supervisors. Senior writers and editors hold weekly brownbag lunches to speak with interns about building key skills.
Responsibilities:Most successful applicants have: completed their junior year in college worked for a college news outlet AND interned with at least one other professional daily news organization. While we would never say never, the odds of your landing one of our internship spots are not very good if you've never interned at a professional newspaper, news magazine or website. We're looking for budding journalists who've demonstrated they're ready to make the most of this opportunity.
