Times-Trib Flag

Applications are due Friday, Oct. 16, for the Spring 2010 internship with The Times-Tribune in Scranton.

Participants will have the chance to work inside a professional newsroom and to learn journalism in the midst of a real city press room with real deadlines and real responsibilities.Your duties as an intern would vary based on your interests and the skills you brought with you.

Current interns are already working on material that goes directly into the newspaper, and you may have the opportunity to write stories that appear under your own by-line. (Whether you intend to be a journalist or a writer of another sort, it is certainly helpful to line up such ‘clips’ early in your career.)

The internship carries 3 credits; for Communication majors that credit may count for an elective within the major. In order to apply, prepare a one-page cover letter, a résumé, and 3-5 samples of your journalistic writing. The strongest applicants will likely be able to draw on their work from The Aquinas or other publications, but we will certainly consider work that you have written for class or on your own.

The Times-Tribune has a separate internship program over the summer. Summer internships are very competitive – they draw applicants from journalism programs and college newspapers across the country – and Times-Tribune editors have indicated that strong performance in a fall or spring internship will give a local applicant an edge.

Review of applications and interviews will begin next week. Students should deliver their applications to:
Professor Kim Pavlick
Communication Dept.
STT – Comm Wing 4128
