Journalism internships @ Staten Island newspaper

The Staten Island Advance, a daily Newhouse newspaper covering New York City's greenest borough, offers a comprehensive internship program for undergraduate and graduate students.

Advance interns get all the same opportunities as full-time staff reporters. They write obituaries, features and profiles. They conduct interviews and cover breaking news. They can work in photography, page design, editing and videography. All interns spend time working on the web desk and learn how to post online news alerts and photo galleries. They can also gain experience in the City Hall or Borough Hall bureaus.

Advance internships are unpaid, and it is preferred but not required that students earn college credit for the experience. Students should be prepared to complete a minimum of two shifts a week. Because the newsroom is open 24/7, shifts are flexible and can work around a student's class schedule.

The Staten Island Advance newsroom is a teaching newsroom where growing good journalists is a priority.

Applications are accepted on a rolling basis for fall and spring semesters and summer. Claire Regan, associate managing editor, is internship supervisor. She can be reached at regan@siadvance.com. See the link below for more information.
