We are Seeking on-air talent, videographers, writers and multi-media Interns for the Summer Season of 2019 on Martha’s Vineyard.


Interning at This Week on Martha's Vineyard is a great way to get some experience, school credit and still have a great summer. Martha's Vineyard is the premier summer destination on the east coast with many college students working and playing here for the summer break

Our internships provide you with approx. 20 hours a week of experience and allows you time to enjoy the island while you work. All internships are part-time and unpaid however you will have plenty of time to gain paid employment at any of the many restaurants and shops on the island. This Week on Martha’s Vineyard is a weekly entertainment media company with a newspaper, TV show, website and interactive map that has been running strong for over 20 years. We cover a variety of topics important to tourists visiting the island such as Activity spotlights, things to do at night, music and restaurant reviews, arts and antiques, shopping, fishing report, and human interest pieces that relate to subjects on the island. This is NOT an internship where you will be stuffing envelopes and performing other menial tasks. Your work WILL be seen by tens of thousands of people each week. In addition, at least once during your internship, you will perform as the Assistant Editor position where you will work closely with the Publisher, Graphic Designer, Editor, and other interns to help produce an issue of the paper and/or an episode of the TV show. This has proven very useful to take with you to show future employers/schools. Also, many of our interns have earned school credits for this internship and we are happy to meet the requirements your school may have to earn these credits. This is an unpaid internship, however, in the past, virtually all of our interns have obtained other work in restaurants or other establishments on the island. (This Week can help you out with this as most of the island's restaurants are also clients). We will work with you as much as possible to accommodate your schedule. Our interns report having the best summer of their lives while gaining some very valuable experience and that having their work published was a great help to them in their future job procurement. I hope this gives you an understanding of our internship program. We are looking for dynamic individuals who want to get real-life experience doing what they love and who want to have the best summer of their lives.

Please be specific in the area(s) you are most proficient and interested in and let us know if you have had any relative experience (not required but helpful). Please send a cover letter, resume, and recent samples of your work to along with any further questions concerning the position. Please put ‘M.V. Summer Intern 2019’ in the subject title of your email. We look forward to hearing from you and to a great 2019 summer season!
