Paid summer internships @ Minneapolis Star Tribune

The Minneapolis Star Tribune, a 300,000-circulation daily newspaper, offers 10-week summer reporting internships in business, features, metro and sports. In addition, internships are available for online media and photojournalism.

We recruit nationally for this program and pride ourselves on choosing talented, driven college and graduate students who can cover breaking news as well as enterprise stories. Our summer interns are paid the same as first-year professionals, $692 a week.

We provide:
-a real-world experience in a major daily newsroom
-a challenging and affirming environment that includes mentors as well as supervisors
-weekly brown-bag lunch discussions on topics such as investigative reporting, narrative writing and multimedia storytelling

Most successful applicants have completed their junior year in college, worked for a college news outlet AND interned with at least one other professional daily news organization. While we would never say never, the odds of your landing one of our internship spots are not very good if you’ve never interned at a professional newspaper, news magazine or website. We’re looking for budding journalists who’ve demonstrated they’re ready to make the most of this opportunity.

Your application must be uploaded or postmarked by Dec. 1, 2011.
