Internship: AJ’s The Stream

Al Jazeera English’s The Stream is looking for a smart, internationally-minded budding journalist to be an intern for its live daily current affairs discussion show.

The intern is responsible for providing clear, concise research to show producers and hosts Femi Oke and Malika Bilal, to help them navigate complex subjects in an informed, thoughtful way.

They should be able to read in and synthesize international news topics quickly, fact-check scripts and provide show and guest suggestions. Social media agility is key. Foreign languages a plus.

The internship is three months long, 35 hours/week, in Washington, DC. Currently enrolled undergraduates can only receive course credit. Currently enrolled masters students can receive course credit or minimum wage. Recent graduates can receive minimum wage.

Candidates should send a CV and cover letter (demonstrating an awareness of what our show is about!) to me – woodsomek@aljazeera.net – and Maya Garg – gargm@aljazeera.net

Fellowship: American Press Institute

The American Press Institute offers a paid summer fellowship for college students or recent graduates who have a strong desire to advance innovation in news organizations.

Unlike a summer internship, a core component of the program is a self-proposed fellowship project. We’re looking a student or recent grad who can envision building something from start to finish — such as a tool, resource, or guide — that would help news organizations make decisions in critical areas of their work.

Description of the AJ+ Internship

Over the course of 12 weeks you will spend time with every editorial department at AJ+. One week you will be writing a script for a short explainer video and the next you will be leading a live chat on Facebook.

We believe in a hands on internship experience where you will learn by doing. We expect you to be pitching stories, doing original reporting and helping us make the AJ+ experience even more awesome.

We also have available the AJ+ Creative Internship. Interns will have the opportunity to learn about the visual side of journalism. Day-to-day tasks include researching and designing infographics, creating visual stories, and brainstorming art for social media. Must have a good grasp on Illustrator. Be sure to indicate that you are interested in this internship on the application form.

Btw…don’t worry, you won’t be getting coffee at this gig, unless it’s with your colleagues, =)
