If you are a faculty member who has mentored student researchers before, or are new to the mentoring process, we hope you can come meet the next group of student researchers!

If you’re a student interested in starting a research project, come learn more about the opportunities available at City Tech.

Internship with NPR

Winter/Spring 2014: Code Switch

ID 2013-1825 Job Location US-DC-Washington
Division News & Information Type Intern
Semester .. Application Deadline ..

More information about this job:
Overview:
NPR’s Code Switch is one of the largest teams in the country reporting on some of the most fascinating topics of our day: race, ethnicity and culture. As the intern for Code Switch, you’ll be working with a diverse, fun team of journalists doing path-breaking coverage of these subjects. And while we can’t promise you’ll emerge Internet-famous, let’s just say there’s a really good chance.

You’ll work with top national correspondents to produce digital packages, lead discussions on social media, contribute story ideas, and report and write stories for the team. As a hybrid broadcast and digital unit, Code Switch works with almost every division at NPR — every show, every desk, multimedia, news apps, marketing and communications, and more — offering a terrific perspective on every aspect of working for NPR News.

We’re looking for a candidate who is fascinated by the different ways that our cultural backgrounds affect our experiences of the world, and who can approach this topic as an explorer rather than an advocate. We seek strong writers with good social media instincts and a passion for community and conversation. A knack with technology and an eye for a good photo certainly won’t hurt your application.

Responsibilities:
  • Produce digital builds for daily radio stories.
  • Research, pitch, report, write and produce pieces for publication online.
  • Coordinate with editorial units outside of Code Switch, including other desks, shows, reporters, editors, and producers.
  • Additional editorial tasks — such as conducting and/or transcribing interviews, procuring images, etc. — as assigned.
Qualifications:
  • Interest in and familiarity with issues of race, ethnicity and culture.
  • Proven writing and storytelling abilities.
  • Ability to do accurate, thorough work on deadline.
  • Digital production expertise, including some multimedia experience. (Fluency with software such as WordPress will be helpful.)
  • Fluency with social media.
  • Strong research/reporting skills.

Before applying, we strongly encourage you to read our Internship FAQ’s here.  Please do not apply for more than 3 internships.
