The Journal Times in Racine, Wisconsin is seeking a creative, motivated student journalist for a 10-week paid internship this summer.
We want our interns to walk away with a rewarding, real-world newsroom experience, a pile of great clips and the skills they need to develop into the next generation of journalists.
Qualified candidates should be inquisitive self-starters who are capable of producing compelling content for our digital and print platforms. Interns should feel empowered to find and pitch great stories about our increasingly diverse communities. We want multitaskers who can juggle multiple assignments and embrace all facets of multimedia storytelling.

Exceptional interns will be considered for full-time employment at the conclusion of the program.
