The New Republic Online is looking for college students and recent graduates for its autumn 2010 web internship program. Internships are unpaid but offer substantial experience in the production of a daily online publication. Interns must be able to work in our Washington DC office. Responsibilities include:

  • Research projects and assisting TNR's senior writers
  • Writing articles and blog posts, and helping to create multimedia content
  • Participating in TNR staff meetings
  • Preparing and updating TNR's homepage
  • Helping to maintain TNR's blogs and other aspects of the site

Political journalism experience is preferred, but not imperative; some familiarity with HTML is helpful, but not crucial; and fluency in search techniques like LexisNexis is mandatory. A full-time commitment is preferred.

Applications for our autumn internship (September through December) are currently being accepted on a rolling basis. For the web internship program, please e-mail a cover letter and résumé to Greg Veis.
