Paid internship @ Las Vegas Review-Journal

The Las Vegas Review-Journal, a 172,000-circulation daily newspaper in Nevada, is offering a paid summer internship on its City Desk. The internship runs 12 weeks and pays about $500 per week.

"Our City Desk intern typically fills a variety of assignments, from cops to courts to only-in-Vegas features," the ad states. "The job involves some general assignment work and filling in for vacationing staff writers, as well as opportunities to generate your own stories. Our staff has no dead weight, and interns are expected to hit the ground running. Expect to pitch in on weekends and work some long shifts."

By Jan. 31, send a cover letter, a resume with three references, and five diverse clips showing spot news, deadline reporting and news feature experience to: Warren Bates, Assistant City Editor, Las Vegas Review-Journal, P.O. Box 70, Las Vegas, NV 89125-0070.
