The Conversation U.S. (TCUS) will hire a summer intern who wants a deep dive into our unique model of journalism. This is not your traditional newsroom, and this is not your traditional writing internship.
We are looking for applicants who are college seniors or recent graduates who want a career in journalism as writers, editors, researchers or data-analysis experts. You may be that person. This is a paid position. We are eager to find a Boston-based location for our headquarters, but we are currently all working from home. We’re looking for applicants who can be flexible and work remotely or possibly out of our future office if it becomes safe to do so.
As part of our growing operation, you will be trained to seek out interesting and timely research and learn how to help scholars translate their work for the general reader. You’ll shadow editors (remotely); attend weekly virtual talks and education sessions; meet professional writers and journalists; and receive one-on-one coaching from a supervisor. You will be responsible for editing at least three stories in our model, along with weekly assignments, editorial research and other projects.
As the ideal candidate, you should be a good listener and writer who learns quickly. You should be able to work independently but also as part of our team. As we grow our organization, there may be possibilities for future employment.
The internship will begin in early June 2022. More details will become available.
To apply, please email your resume, a statement of interest and the names/contact information of two professional references to firstname.lastname@example.org. Applications will be accepted on a rolling basis.
The Conversation U.S. is deeply committed to inclusion and diversity. We encourage members of traditionally underrepresented groups – including people who are Black, Latinx, Asian American, Native, LGBTQ+ or veterans of the Armed Services – to apply.
