SalaryNot Specified

In South Florida, you'll find warm weather and open records laws that sizzle. We're known for exposing corruption, grabbing a piece of every big national story and, of course, Mar-a-Lago, the winter White House of Donald J. Trump.

If you’re dedicated to a career in news gathering and want a place to show what you can do, our summer internship is for you. Our interns must juggle a load of daily news and crime stories, features and, when they really put their mind to it, the kind of in-depth stories that make journalism great.

Summer interns must have at least two years of college and an interest in the job proven by their clippings. They must be quick to report and write, willing to juggle multiple stories and eager to absorb the nuances of one of Florida’s largest and most diverse counties. It helps if they can sort a spreadsheet, shoot photos and are adept at all types of social media, from tweeting out links to shooting Facebook Live videos and telling Snapchat stories.

Interested candidates should provide a cover letter, resume, references and writing samples to Em Mendez, newsroom manager, and Tom Elia, breaking news editor, at by midnight Jan 4, 2019.
