The Associated Press is offering paid 12-week general assignment journalism internships for the summer 2017 in eight U.S. cities (Chicago, Dallas, Miami, New York, Philadelphia, Phoenix, San Francisco, and Washington, D.C.) and nine international locations (Amman, Athens, Bangkok, London, Mexico City, New Delhi, Prague, Rio de Janeiro and Tokyo).
Interns will receive training and experience in video and at least one other format (text, photos or interactive/graphics.)
Successful candidates will be strong storytellers who can demonstrate solid news judgment and the ability to suggest story ideas and angles and incorporate them in video, still images and/or text. Interns should be comfortable interacting with a diverse group of co-workers and interview subjects.
Interns will be expected to keep up-to-date with news in the city or region and its relevance to national and international affairs. Reporting responsibilities will include conducting interviews, monitoring social media and covering breaking news stories, either by phone or going to the scene. Assignments may cover general news, sports, business or entertainment.
Interns will assist in the production of video stories, including non-linear editing and writing story summaries and scripts. They will assist in setting up news and feature stories and join location shoots, or do their own shooting. Interns also may assist with content management and translations.
