Business Insider is looking breaking news editorial intern to join our news team in NYC. This intern will be primarily working with our weekend editor, so the schedule for this 40 hour a week internship is Thursday through Monday.
This intern will help the news and politics teams with research and social media promotion, and will have ample opportunities to both write and syndicate news stories.
We need someone who is enthusiastic about social media, curious about politics and tech, and broadly interested in general business and world news. There will be a mixture of original writing and reporting, as well as setting up wires and posts from contributors.
We’re looking for the following:
- Excellent writing skills.
- Someone who is psyched to work with text, photos, video, graphics, and audio – often all in the same story.
- Someone who is addicted to the news and works quickly.
- Someone with good time-management skills who thrives in the fast-paced environment of a newsroom.
As an intern at Business Insider, there’s no getting coffee, filing, or making copies. Our interns are an integral part of our team. Many of our current writers and editors started as interns.
BI interns spend their time doing meaningful work: researching, writing, producing, and promoting features and stories – even breaking news if the timing’s right.
APPLY HERE with your resume, a cover letter, and links to several clips. Please note that this internship requires that you work in our Manhattan office. Interns are encouraged to work full-time (40 hours a week) if their schedule allows, and the internship can run for up to six months.
