DescriptionIn your internship inquiry, submit your cover letter and resume to each division that interests you; for instance, if you seek a position on the website or the TV operation, craft an e-mail to each. If you submit an application one semester but are not selected, you may reapply, reiterating your interest, updating your qualifications and detailing your availability. Occasionally a student can secure an internship after the initial deadlines, which are summer, Dec. 1; autumn, April 1; and spring and holiday interim, Oct. 15.
Standard minimum work commitment is 15-20 hours, two to three days a week for 12 weeks. Specific hours and days vary with assignments but may include evening and Sunday hours.
Given our expectations for polish and execution, print desks prefer previous internship experience or a leadership role in your campus newspaper and Dot-com desks prefer Web-friendly seniors and graduate students, but exceptional underclass students may qualify.
