An opportunity to gain professional experience by working for our human-interest oriented group of newspapers. The Long Island Jewish World/Manhattan Jewish Sentinel/Rockland Jewish Tribune group has immediate openings for student interns who are aspiring editors and/or reporters. Based in the Far Rockaway/Five Towns area, our newspapers have covered Long Island and the metropolitan New York area for 30 years.
Practically speaking, our Interns will work for five hours or more per week and will benefit from the direct supervision of our professional staff. Interns will cover real stories, published with their bylines. As weekly publications our emphasis is on analysis and news features, including politics, culture, religion and profiles of people who make a difference. We are offering a small stipend.
While our newspapers are geared toward Jewish audiences, it is not necessary for interns to be Jewish. However, an interest in Jewish affairs and a willingness to learn are important. Our office is conveniently located two blocks from the A train, making us accessible by public transit from anywhere in New York City, as well as two blocks from the LIRR Far Rockaway station.
We have lots of story ideas waiting for ambitious interns to begin immediately. Please encourage your students to send a resume and, if applicable, a writing sample to firstname.lastname@example.org, with “Intern” in the subject.
We look forward to hearing from your students. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me directly.
