(Updated at 2:15 p.m.) ARLnow.com is seeking an ambitious intern to join our small team in Clarendon this fall.
We’re looking for a college intern who is pursuing a career in journalism and has relevant academic and extracurricular experience. Interest in local news in particular is a plus.
This is an especially hands-on, educational internship that will provide our intern with dozens of bylines over the course of the semester as well as valuable writing and editing guidance. Other responsibilities include research and occasional administrative tasks.
The internship will pay a $1,000 stipend to cover commuting and other expenses, but is otherwise unpaid. Internship start and end dates are flexible, as are hours — though we require at least 20 hours per week.
Strong writing skills are a must. Photography experience and familiarity with WordPress and Photoshop are desired.
To apply, please email a resume, cover letter and additional writing sample to [email protected]. The application deadline is August 1.
