Paid summer internship @ Las Vegas Review-Journal

The Las Vegas Review-Journal, a major metro in a world-class news town, has an opening for a 10-week summer intern.

Experience with a college publication or another newspaper is required. A previous internship is a plus. Applicants should have experience covering breaking news and writing on deadline. They should know how to craft a snappy lead and have a clean, refined writing style that keeps a reader’s attention. A reliable vehicle of your own is another requirement; road trips to other Southern Nevada communities are common.

Our City Desk intern typically fills a variety of assignments, from cops to courts to only-in-Vegas features. 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.

We anticipate paying $12.50 per hour. Interns are not eligible for employee benefits, though the coffee is free. The bigger payoff is down the line: We like to hire former interns, and now have at least five on staff. We’re flexible on the start times, but would want someone here in May or June - effectively as soon as classes end and you can get here.

Interested? E-mail a cover letter, a resume with three references, and five diverse clips showing spot news, deadline reporting and news feature experience by Feb. 22 to:

James G. Wright
Assistant City Editor
