The Boston Globe summer internship program began more than 60 years ago as an opportunity for college students interested in journalism to gain practical experience at a major news organization.
The largest group of interns works in the News Department as general assignment reporters.
Other interns are hired for:
- News copy desk
Internships are NOT limited to students with journalism majors.
- All students currently enrolled in an undergraduate program
- Graduating seniors (May or June 2021 graduation date)
- Enrolled journalism graduate school students (with no professional journalism experience)
An aptitude for journalism is the most important qualification for applicants. However, a previous internship is recommended. Applicants must have a driver’s license and should be comfortable driving.
Summer interns work as full-time employees for 12 weeks. Interns are paid a weekly wage and work-shifts vary. There is a writing coach for the reporting interns, and discussions with editors and staff on a range of journalism topics for all of the interns.
Applications must be submitted electronically for consideration.
