Paid Journalism Internship
Media Organization: MedicalDaily.com
MedicalDaily.com is dedicated to covering health and science news that matters most to our generation. We cover a wide range of stories, but ultimately we are driven by two core values: first, to contribute to our readers’ understanding of what is a very complex and constantly changing field of information, and second, to keep in mind the ultimate “smell test” —we want our stories to be the kind of things you talk about at a bar with your friends.
We are seeking a college senior or graduate student to join our newsroom as a Summer 2015 intern. Interns at Medical Daily are entrusted with both editorial and social media marketing responsibilities. You will be responsible for various social media tasks including managing the site’s Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, and Google+ accounts, as well as compiling data for marketing research.
You will also be given the opportunity to research and write news stories based on assignments developed by your editors and your own pitches. You will be working towards mostly daily deadlines; however, every intern will also have the opportunity to research and write at least one 3000+ word originally-reported feature story.
Interns will also be able to pitch stories for Newsweek, the flagship IBT Media brand. (This is a non-credit internship.)
Please send a resume and 2 clips to Nadia Harris at firstname.lastname@example.org.
