DescriptionThe TPM Internship is a paid internship program in which interns get a crash course in how a digital media news organization works from the ground up. We’re taking applications for our summer cycle TPM internship. Former TPM interns and fellows have gone on to jobs at The New Republic, The Wall Street Journal, Huffington Post, The New York Sun, The Verge, The Atlantic, The New Yorker, The Washington Post and more. And usually a third to a half of our staff is made up of former fellows and interns. Full listing after the jump.
TPM interns are involved in every aspect of our operation and have a hand in everything we do. They work alongside our reporters to write and break stories, help our editors keep a finger on the pulse of the news day, and produce all kinds of digital media from youtube clips to mash-up photographs. The fellows also attend weekly brown bag lunches with reporters, editors and publishing staff to learn the ins and outs of the new media business.
Our fellows and interns have moved on to jobs in new and old media alike, working for us, as well as The New Republic, The Wall Street Journal, Huffington Post, The New York Sun, The New Yorker, The Washington Post and more.
Fellows receive a stipend for the summer. The internship program is ongoing and we are always accepting applications. The position is based in TPM’s New York City office.
Rising seniors, recent graduates, and graduate students, as well as relevant course of study, preferred. Qualified applicants can receive academic credit.
To apply for any of our internships, send an email to internship at talkingpointsmemo.com with a cover letter, resume, writing sample, and two written references. Include the subject line: “Job App: Editorial Internship.”
