Summer 2020 - The Boston Globe Summer Internship Program (Deadline Nov. 1)

2020 SUMMER INTERN PROGRAM

The Boston Globe summer internship program began more than 50 years ago as an opportunity for college students interested in journalism to gain practical experience at a major news organization.

The largest group of interns works in the News Department as general assignment reporters. Other intern reporters are hired for the Sports, Living/Arts, and Business departments. We also have intern positions in the Photography department, and on the News copy desk. Internships are NOT limited to students with journalism majors.

ELIGIBLE:

  • All students currently enrolled in an undergraduate program
  • Graduating seniors (May or June 2020 graduation date)
  • Enrolled journalism graduate school students (with no professional journalism experience)

An aptitude for journalism is the most important qualification for applicants. However, a previous internship is recommended. Applicants must have a driver’s license and should be comfortable driving as our interns cover stories from all over New England.

Summer interns work as full-time employees for 12 weeks. Interns are paid a weekly wage and work-shifts vary. There is a writing coach for the reporting interns, and discussions with editors and staff on a range of journalism topics for all of the interns.

Applications must be submitted electronically for consideration.
