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:
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.

  • 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.
  • 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.

Internship at the Poetry Society of America

The Poetry Society of America, the nation’s oldest poetry nonprofit, seeks a highly motivated intern for the 2012-2013 academic year. The PSA internship program provides hands-on experience in the managing, development, and programming extensions of this art-nonprofit, and is an excellent opportunity for a professional and creative individual who wants to develop a career in the cultural nonprofit sector.  As the office is small, interns will have the chance to work with all areas of our organization, and thus are expected to express the motivation and readiness to transition from task to task.

Candidates are expected to possess:

  • A strong command of the English language
  • Proven excellence in proofreading and copyediting
  • Excellent communication skills
  • Ability to multi-task
  • Pleasant demeanor that translates well to phone and office manner
  • Skills with time efficiency and management
  • Comfort with a PC and Microsoft-based operating system
  • Ability to work in both a collaborative and self-managed environment
  • A solid literary background, an enthusiasm for poetry, and basic office experience

This position comes with a $750 stipend (split over two semesters). Interns will be asked to give a 10-16 hour per-week commitment October through May. To apply, send a cover letter and resume to Brett Fletcher Lauer, the Managing Director, at brett@poetrysociety.org. The PSA will take applications through October 15th.
