We are looking for virtual (unpaid) interns, who will help us with content production on these topics:

The White House and the federal Executive Branch
The Supreme Court and federal courts
Economy and Municipal Bonds
Local Puerto Rico issues
In addition, we welcome applicants looking to work in social media, graphic design and web development.

Pasquines is run by volunteers, so unfortunately we are unable to offer pay at this time. We will however help you obtain college credit if so desired.

ASAP. We accept interns on a rolling basis, and therefore there is no hard deadline.

We are looking for interns for 6 month and 1 year terms, eligible to be renewed based on your interest and our needs.


These interns will assist with news coverage. This includes helping to report, research and write breaking news and long-form journalism, including features, analyses, personality profiles, Q&As, among others. The interns will also help the staff by monitoring newswires, competitors’ sites and social media to identify trends and formulate news stories.

Interns will be expected to contribute at least one story per week depending on the topic area assigned. They should expect to work around 2 hours per week, depending on the topic and functions assigned.
