Editorial and Online Media Internship opportunities – 2016
Scoop News Group is an innovative business media company that engages with top information technology leaders working for federal, state and local government agencies and industry.
Based in Washington, D.C., we reach approximately 200,000 subscribers through our FedScoop, StateScoop and EdScoop daily news websites – and we interact with many of the nation’s most influential IT officials and leaders in person through our highly acclaimed forums and events. We also provide marketing services to the largest tech companies in the nation.
We’re looking for bright, enthusiastic, hard-working and outgoing interns with strong communications and writing skills for the 2016 fall semester.
The internships are based in our downtown Washington, D.C. office (at 1150 18th Street, NW). Students can receive course credit for the internship and are eligible to receive a stipend.
Editorial Intern Position
The editorial intern will be responsible for researching, writing and producing online news stories primarily for EdScoop. Duties include conducting and transcribing interviews, fact-checking stories and other editorial tasks.
Interns will have the opportunity to interact with and write about high-level executives and government officials in both K-12 and higher education. They will be responsible for reporting about developments in the education technology industry, and how schools are adopting new programs, software and technologies with the goal of increasing student achievement and school performance. An interest in what's working in the industry, as well as a sharp eye for exposing misuse or overreach, is desired in potential candidates.
Candidates must demonstrate strong writing skills and a good eye for news, as well as a willingness to throw themselves into the world of education, technology and public sector policy. We love go-getters, so you will have the opportunity to pitch and pursue own stories. Knowledge of technology and its use in education is a plus, but not necessary if you’re willing to work hard. University juniors, seniors and recent graduates are encouraged to apply.
