Additional details: We are planning a summer intern to work in our newsroom. We tailor the beats the intern would cover (whether features, government, news, sports, etc., or a mix of all) based on the intern’s career goals. We lead interns and provide coaching but strive to give interns real-world experience and make them part of our team during their stay. This is a paid internship that will be scheduled for 30 hours per week. Some nights/weekend work — standard for all members of our newsroom. The internship will last 8-12 weeks. Our paper serves more than 5,000 readers in southeastern Iowa and has a nearby sister newspaper that serves nearly 2,000 in central Iowa.

We are sorry. The deadline to apply for this internship has passed. Please check the other available internships.
