2013 SUMMER INTERNSHIP PROGRAM 2013 FALL-W INTER SPORTS INTERNSHIP

REPORTERS | COPY EDITORS | PAGE DESIGNERS | PHOTOGRAPHERS

FOR THE BEST AND THE BRIGHTEST

RE YOU A COLLEGE STUDENT who is currently enrolled in an accredited college or university? Have you worked on your college newspaper or other campus publication? How would you like to spend your summer working at a 160,000-circulation newspaper located near the beach? The Virginian-Pilots summer internship may be just right for you! Our internships are highly competitive. Therefore, experience working on a college newspaper is a must, and a previous internship at a daily paper is a plus. Reporters and photographers will need a car. Juniors and seniors are preferred, but sophomores and graduate students also are eligible.

The Pilot will select five interns for next summer one page designer, one copy editor, one photographer and two reporters. They will be notified by Christmas. The pay is $540 a week and the internships run for 12 weeks during the summer. We also will offer a fall-winter sports internship that will last for six months (September 2013-March 2014). The sports intern is expected to work as a copy editor for three months and as a sports reporter for three months. All interns have regular opportunities to meet with Pilot editors and other news staffers.
