Feb 1, 2017
Posted in: Internships & scholarships, Journalism internships
VCU Innovation Economy, charged with ensuring the VCU community has access to innovative and entrepreneurial pathways that support regional economic development, cultural vitality and community well-being, is seeking a paid intern to join our small, dynamic team. Read through the qualifications below to see if you’re up for the gig.
You’re a great writer.
This is a given, and while modest, you know you’re darn good at it. You’ve likely contributed to publications (print or digital), produced killer copy, and have played a role in developing editorial strategy.
You’re into start-ups.
This is preferable, but not a must. However, if you’re going to be covering VCU startups, alumni entrepreneurs, innovative technologies, and related university news, it’d make sense you geek out over this as much as we do.
You’re a self starter –no hand holding here!
You care about two things: producing quality work and meeting deadlines. Check those boxes and you’ll have all the autonomy you need. Well to a degree that is….
• Write and produce weekly articles pertaining to the aforementioned topics (entrepreneurship, VCU startups, etc…)
• Assist in developing the editorial strategy for the entrepreneurship.vcu.edu website.
• Work closely with management to ensure quality copy across the site and related social media channels.
How To Apply:
Please submit a resume and three published writing samples (links will suffice as well) to Dominic Costanzo at firstname.lastname@example.org
