Journalism internships are plentiful and varied, giving interns options in the field; however, I’d caution any intern from assuming all journalism internships are the same. It’s important for every intern, in every field of study, to find the right internship for him or herself.

Many journalism internships will offer editor or writing positions to interns so they can build content for the publication or site. This provides and excellent opportunity for an intern to refine his or her writing style and exhibit published talent in a portfolio. Some internships may require interns to spend a majority of time researching for other writers but this is just as valuable an experience. Research builds working knowledge of various topics which can supplement an intern’s experience creating a journalist with well-rounded commentary and flexible style.
