Internships

Internships serve as a stepping stone for young journalists to improve their portfolio, add work experience and break into the journalism industry. That’s why Poynter maintains this list of news media internships. Students can search available internships and news organizations can submit openings. Please note: Poynter does not accept or list unpaid internships.
