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 given that you will not be required to work in our offices. However, for the Photojournalism internship, we are asking you to be available for fieldwork in the Seattle area.

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 that while the majority of our internships for summer 2021 specifically require you to be a temporary or permanent resident of Washington or Oregon, this residency requirement does not apply for this internship.

Qualifications
• Provide a link to your online portfolio containing 20–30 images that include news, features, portraits, sports, at least one photo story and an example of video work.
• Applicants must have a personal vehicle and photo equipment.
• Applicant must be willing and able to move to the Seattle area for fieldwork during the course of their internship.
• 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.
