Description

Every year, The Seattle Times offers a series of paid summer internships to outstanding students eager to build a career in journalism. For 10 weeks, our interns have the privilege to work closely with members of our Pulitzer Prize-winning staff members on a variety of real-world assignments as employees of our established, renowned metropolitan newspaper and website.

With the state of the industry given the impact of Covid-19, we expect internships to be remote. Internships are only available to Juniors and Seniors (including graduating Seniors) attending a four-year college or university, as well as graduate students. Applicants must be journalism majors or have a demonstrated commitment to print or online journalism, possess social media skills, and be digitally astute. Internship experience at other news organizations is strongly preferred.

Please note we are only accepting applications from students residing in Washington or Oregon. Students attending other universities or colleges from outside Washington or Oregon may still apply if they are current residents. Students with a permanent mailing address in either state are also eligible (for example, those who plan to return to Washington or Oregon for Summer break).

Qualifications
• Applicants should have interest in and some specialized knowledge of at least one of the following subject areas: arts & entertainment; travel & outdoors; food & drink; and/or lifestyle and culture.
• Must be 18 or older.

Pay
• As a paid position, this internship pays $16.39 per hour. Note this is subject to change depending on the legal minimum wage for Seattle in 2021.
