In March 2019, Insider Inc. launched a Fellowship Program and opened applications to all early-career journalists looking to make an impact in digital media.

The fellowship program recruits the most talented fellows and pairs them with the team where they can make the biggest impact, whether they’re writing stories, creating videos, editing, researching, designing, or anything else. Their work is seen by our audience of millions, and they become experts in digital media. Participants in our fellowship program end their time here ready to dive into the next phase of their careers as journalists. Meanwhile, Insider Inc. benefits from the diverse perspectives that early-career journalists bring to our newsrooms.

How it works

  • The program is open to all early-career journalists looking to make an impact in digital media.

  • Fellowships will run for six months.

  • Most fellowships are based in our New York City headquarters. (Some positions will be available in San Francisco and Los Angeles; see listings below.)

  • Fellows are paid $18 an hour, and they are expected to work 40 hours a week.

  • We’re looking for fellows across teams and job categories. No matter where they are placed, fellows will be tasked with hands-on assignments and given clear goals for their time with us.

  • We welcome a new fellowship class every six months, starting in January and July of each year.

  • Fellowship applications for the winter/spring session open in July. Applications for the summer/fall session open in January

Who’s eligible?

The fellowship program is open to any journalist who wants to spend six months learning in one of the world’s premiere digital newsrooms.

Most of our fellows will be recent college graduates, but there is no education requirement or age cutoff. We screen people based on their journalism and other technical skills, prior experience, subject matter knowledge, and more — show us, in one way or another, that you can do the work.

You should have a clear vision for why you want to work at Insider Inc., and why you want to be on the specific team that you’re applying for.

But beyond that, we are simply seeking talented, enthusiastic journalists who want to come and learn from our team.
