Flagpole is seeking interns to fill the following positions for the spring semester.
News: Are you dreaming of an exciting career covering government meetings? This job’s for you! Kidding (kind of). In addition to local politics, our news interns have the opportunity to write about the university, business, food, music, the arts and anything else that’s of interest to the community, both for print and online. Digital and photography skills are a plus.
Photography: All of those terrific stories our news intern, freelancers and editors are writing need to be illustrated, and we’re in the midst of a redesign that’s putting greater emphasis on visuals. Our photography intern shoots photos for news, food and music articles as assigned, and we’re always receptive to ideas of your own, too. Must have your own equipment.
Web: We’re looking for someone who can create online maps, slideshows, timelines and other graphics, as well as write for our blogs and help us manage our social media accounts. Because we’re old. We all have, like, AOL at home and can barely turn a computer on.
These positions require at least 10 hours per week. We will work around your class schedule.
Please send your resume and work samples to City Editor Blake Aued at firstname.lastname@example.org by Friday, Nov. 7. We will be interviewing candidates before the Thanksgiving break.
