Newsday is a daily newspaper that primarily serves Nassau and Suffolk counties.
Newsday.com is seeking multimedia interns to work on our website. The ideal candidate will be hard-working, meticulous, self-motivated and a team player with previous newspaper and online experience.
The editorial internship is intensely hands-on, and a number of previous interns have been hired as full-time employees. You will be publishing stories, photos, polls and other multimedia extras; writing blog posts; and coordinating with reporters, editors and others to keep fresh content flowing to the site. You may also be assigned to write stories and assist with breaking news.
You will also assist in the production of longer-term multimedia projects. Previous projects have included multi-part articles, a special report on Alzheimer's and a comprehensive voters guide.
Interns may also be assigned to work specifically on the Long Island news section of the site, or Sports, Entertainment or ExploreLI (our local destination and event-based section).
The multimedia internship requires candidates to report to Newsday's Melville office.
