Political Journalism Internships
Fairness.com LLC, publisher of the non-commercial Fairness.com website, has a telecommute internship covering politics and public policy issues. This is a great opportunity for those wishing to do serious journalistic work using online media.
- Add and annotate speeches and position papers using our NowComment® document discussion/annotation tool.
- Conduct interviews.
- Arrange panel discussions on important public policy topics.
- Very occasionally (5% or less of your time) help spec and test new Nowcomment features.
Important Aspects of the Internship
- Online work environment (geographic and schedule flexibility). The program is structured for email and web communications; interns work from school or home anywhere in the country on the days (and times of day) that work best for them. Twelve hours per week is the minimum time commitment during the school year, and twenty hours the minimum during shorter summer breaks.
- All work is directly related to internship responsibilities; there are no unrelated clerical, administrative, or other duties.
- The internships are unpaid. Many interns receive academic credits for Fairness.com internships through their school's Career Center or faculty advisor. Fairness.com is happy to coordinate with such programs.
- Extensive knowledge of US national politics and current events.
- Journalism coursework or experience is a significant plus but not absolutely required.
- Broadband Internet access during internship hours.
- Strong work ethic; successful interns must be disciplined enough to work well on their own and to keep their personal political views and preferences from interfering with (or even being discernible in) their internship work.
