The Boston Globe 2010 Summer Intern Program – Deadline Nov. 1

The Boston Globe summer intern program began more than 50 years ago as an opportunity for college students interested in journalism to gain practical experience on a major newspaper.

The largest group of interns works in metro on general assignment. Other intern reporters are assigned to sports, living/arts, and business. We also have intern positions in the photography and graphics departments, and on the copy desk. The copy editing position may be filled by a Newspaper Fund* intern, and a health/science position is provided through the Kaiser Foundation.** Internships are NOT limited to students with undergraduate journalism majors. All students currently enrolled in an undergraduate program or will be graduating in May or June may apply, as well as journalism graduate school students who have NOT had professional experience as a newspaper reporter.

An aptitude for newspaper work is the most important qualification for the internship. Applicants must have had at least one previous internship at a daily newspaper. Applicants must have a driver’s license.

Summer interns work as full-time employees for twelve weeks, between Memorial Day and Labor Day. Interns are paid a weekly wage, and shifts vary. An intern supervisor serves as a writing coach and there are weekly meetings with editors and staff members on a range of issues and topics pertaining to journalism.

In February 2005, The Globe was the only newspaper included in “America’s A-List of Internships” published by the Wall Street Journal. To make the final list, the Journal said, “internship programs had to receive multiple recommendations from employers” and “stand out from competing programs.”

Application forms can be obtained from: Paula Bouknight, Assistant Managing Editor/Hiring, The Boston Globe, P.O. Box 55819, Boston, MA 02205-5819 (617-929-3212), or downloaded from our website after August 31:
