Los Angeles Times internship program

October 12, 2020

Posted by Mariam Ahmed

The Los Angeles Times offers 10 weeks of intensive, hands-on experience in a region where big stories are the norm.

Interns are placed throughout the Los Angeles Times: Metro/Local, Arts and Entertainment, Sports, Politics, Business, Features (Fashion, Food, Travel, Home Design, Mind & Body), Foreign/National, Editorial Pages, Photography/Video, Data and Graphics, Design, Digital/Engagement and in the Washington, D.C., bureau.

These are paid internships and placements usually run from June to late August.

Applicants must be actively working toward an undergraduate or graduate degree and must be eligible to work in the U.S. Graduates may qualify if you’ve finished school within six months of the start of the internship.

Applicants for the visual journalism and most reporting internships must have a valid driver’s license and access to a car in good working condition.

Internships are for students who have not worked professionally as staff journalists. Little training is offered, so previous internship experience is required.

For further information, contact assistant managing editor Angel Jennings at

Submit a brief cover letter; resume with three references; one-page personal essay; and up to six work samples.

Nov. 15 for the summer 2021 program
