Reporting Intern

Documented is a nonprofit news organization that produces reporting for and about immigrant New Yorkers. We provide original news stories on the ground-level impact of shifts in labor policy, law-enforcement practices and bureaucratic requirements, and on the effects of new federal directives as well as Q&As and instructional guides that inform New Yorkers about food, health and financial aid and legal issues. We have won awards from the EPPYs, the Online News Association and Local Independent Online News Publishers. Our work has been mentioned by The New York Times, The Washington Post, in federal lawsuits, at the New York City Council and many other places.

The role

Documented is looking for a reporting intern to help us cover New York City’s immigrant communities this summer. This is an exciting time to be covering immigration in New York, as the national crisis came to our doorstep last May and hasn’t stopped since. As a reporting intern, you’ll help our readers make sense of everything happening with the Adams administration and the federal government’s changes to immigration policy. Interns will also have the opportunity to gain valuable mentorship and experience from Documented’s staff.  

This role may involve attending a press conference, doing research on government databases, or reporting stories anywhere in the five boroughs. We are seeking writers primarily, but any data or photography skills are welcome. We have a multi-lingual team of reporters and editors who speak Spanish, French, Haitian Creole, and Chinese. Language skills are invaluable in covering immigration, so fluency in any of New York’s main languages will also give you an edge. 

Documented has an office in the financial district that you are welcome to use as much as you want, but we require one day per week in person. Our newsroom is flexible and also encourages creativity. You will have daily responsibilities, but we also encourage our staff to pursue what interests them. Please come ready with ideas on what you want to cover. 

This length of this role will be from June 1 to August 31. 


Key Responsibilities 


  • Find events and news stories to cover
  • Assist Documented reporters in reporting projects
  • Pitch ideas for stories based on conversations with sources
  • Assist in the production of the newsletter


Required Qualifications:


  • Interest in New York City and immigration reporting
  • Able to spend at least one day a week at our office in the Financial District
  • Experience writing news stories
  • Interest in data reporting and investigative journalism


Preferred Qualifications

  • Fluency in one of New York’s top 10 languages


Compensation and Benefits


  • Rate: $20/hour ($800/week)
  • Time commitment: 40 hours per week
  • Term: (Temporary) June 1 to August 31


We highly value lived experiences in the issues we cover as a news organization. We also understand the difficult work realities due to the pandemic and are open to accommodating people with different work requirements.

A Note to Potential Candidates:

Studies have shown that women, trans, non-binary people, and BIPOC are less likely to apply for jobs unless they believe they meet every one of the qualifications as described in a job description. We are committed to building a diverse and inclusive organization, and we are most interested in finding the best candidate for the job. That candidate may be one who comes from a background less traditional to our field of work, and we welcome the opportunity for new insight into our work. We would strongly encourage you to apply, even if you don’t believe you meet every one of the qualifications described.

BBC Global News Limited Multimedia Fellowship
New York Bureau
Based in the New York bureau, the fellowship is an opportunity for someone with a passion for documentary filmmaking to work on high-quality, in-depth short stories that go beyond the breaking news cycle. The Fellow will help research, produce, film, edit and promote videos and series for BBC Reel,the premium video and short documentary destination of the BBC. From insights about the human psyche to uncovering secret worlds across the planet, we target a global audience of smart and cultivated minds, with ideas and concepts that instill curiosity and inspire change. Our audiences are eager to go beyond their everyday landscapes, start conversations and understand the topics that are shaping our future. Our unique visual experiences offer unprecedented access to intriguing places, untold stories, and unanswered questions.

You will have an opportunity to work with BBC editors and producers on a range of assignments and formats that appeal to a global audience of millions of viewers. Candidates with a strong interest in digital and visual storytelling, strong journalistic judgment, and film/editing skills - animation skills are a plus - and who are eager to experiment with creative ways of storytelling are highly appreciated. They should also be self-motivated, creative, thorough, and tenacious. There will be opportunities for researching stories, developing your own ideas, working alongside video journalists, and editors while learning about the BBC’s editorial standards. Students may have the opportunity to produce, shoot, and edit one to a maximum of three of their own short documentary ideas, while the position will primarily be supporting producers on the team. You will also be part of the LongShots film festival team, the BBC’s online film festival.

PLEASE NOTE: The BBC operation in the U.S. is limited so, although it is not impossible, it is unlikely that the fellowship will lead to a staff job and the BBC does not sponsor internationals for jobs within the United States. We do constantly work with freelancers though, and many of our former fellows are contributors now.

  1. Cover Page with name, contact information, list of your spring semester seminar classes, and names and contact information of  two Columbia Journalism School references

Working across all five boroughs, our award-winning journalists bring diverse skills and backgrounds to the task of covering New York’s neighborhoods, holding the powerful to account and making sense of the greatest city in the world.

The internship:

This is not a get-coffee-and-shuffle-paperwork internship. We are looking for student journalists at the graduate level who will arrive with some reporting chops. You will hone and add skills to your repertoire by working in a top-notch local newsroom.

You will work directly with an editor on both general news and feature reporting, with a focus on getting out in the field and covering what’s happening in New York City first hand.

You should walk in with ideas ready to go on your first day and an understanding of how to generate and pursue story leads in this great city. We’d like to hear your thoughts on which communities or topic areas are best suited for service journalism from THE CITY.

In addition to working on your own pieces, you will also help field reader questions, and feedback, and help our staffers report their stories — always with due credit.

Duties include pitching and fielding stories, reporting and writing, taking photographs at times and prepping social media language and posts for your articles.

We’re looking for someone who can commit to a full work week for 12 weeks, and lives within the five boroughs or immediate suburbs for the duration of the internship.


Qualifications:

  • Strong writing and verbal communication skills
  • A nose for news
  • A willingness to listen and learn — and to share what you know

Other things to know...

  • Salary: $800/week
  • Location: New York City


Job descriptions like this one are wish lists that are rarely completely fulfilled, even by the successful candidate. Research shows that women are less likely than men to apply for jobs when they don't meet all the criteria. Don’t hesitate to apply even if you don’t check every box. You can be right for the job even if you’re missing a bullet point or two, and you can have important skills we haven’t thought of that would make you a compelling candidate. Even if this doesn’t end up being a match, applying puts you on our radar – and it’s free!


We are dedicated to improving our newsroom, in part by better reflecting the people of the city we cover. We are committed to diversity and building an inclusive environment for people of all backgrounds and ages, and we especially encourage members of traditionally under-represented communities to apply, including women, people of color, LGBTQ people, immigrants, veterans, people with disabilities, and those with lived experiences in the communities we cover."

The intern will work closely with THE CITY’s data reporter Suhail Bhat and graphics producer Will Welch to create graphics, news apps and perform original analysis using data.


When you join our small yet mighty team, you will wear many hats. Whether you're focused on data, design or code, we are looking for someone who can pitch and develop their own stories, collaborate with other reporters, file work on a deadline and contribute to THE CITY’s visual and interactive storytelling.

There are a variety of skill sets that would work for this role, including:

  • Experience explaining complex ideas with visuals and finding creative ways to tell stories with data
  • Ability to perform original data analysis with tools like Excel, R, Python and SQL
  • Proficiency with design software like Adobe illustrator and Photoshop Familiarity with HTML, CSS and
  • Javascript
  • In-depth knowledge of mapping tools like QGIS, Mapshaper, Mapbox and Leaflet
  • Front-end development experience with visualization libraries like D3 and frameworks like React
  • More important than any particular skill is a portfolio of work that demonstrates an ability to creatively engage readers with news and data.

Keep in mind you do not need to check off every item on our wish list to apply. Great candidates also will have skills we haven’t thought of. We are eager to learn from you as much as you will working with us.


A borough reporter will arrive with some reporting chops and walk in with ideas ready to go on the first day, and an understanding of how to generate and pursue story leads in this great city during challenging times.


In addition to working on their own pieces, the intern will also help our staffers report their stories — always with due credit. Duties include pitching and fielding stories, scouring databases, helping with Freedom of Information Law requests, taking photographs at times and prepping social media language for your articles.


We’re looking for someone who can commit to a full work week for 10 weeks starting in August, September or October, preferably living during that period within the five boroughs or immediate suburbs (though there could be some flexibility depending upon conditions in the city at that time).


The ideal candidate is a motivated, energetic student of journalism who can work well with others passionate about the power and importance of local news.


THE CITY is committed to diversity and especially encourages members of underrepresented communities to apply. We offer equal opportunity regardless of race, color, religion, gender, gender identity or expression, sexual orientation, national origin, genetics, disability status, age, marital status, or protected veteran status.

San Francisco, Calif.
Mission Local,  is San Francisco's largest nonprofit news site focused entirely on the city. We have been around for nearly 15 years and the throughline over that time has not really changed: we aim to do impactful coverage and train young reporters who reflect the diversity of the city. An indication of our success - we won the 2022 ONA General Excellence Award in our size category.  Our model is simple. We train young people to produce original, award-winning reporting on the city’s most pressing issues: police reform, housing, health, homelessness, and education. We don’t aggregate. We make phone calls, read documents, pound the pavement, attend meetings.  We talk to people on the street. Our interns are an integral part of our coverage. We encourage them to be ambitious and we help them in execution. What an intern will cover here depends on the skills the intern brings to the site. We have had interns who focused entirely on data and others who want to write or do multimedia. We do a lot of hands-on editing. We expect a lot, but we also give a lot. The team here is small - six full-time editorial staffers - and cohesive.  The city and neighborhood are full of great stories so for anyone who is ambitious and curious, there is plenty to do.

Do you have an interest in how religion in America interacts with the nation’s politics, ideas and culture? Can you report from an objective stance on a wide range of faith traditions and concerns? Are you prepared to make an immediate contribution to a fast-moving news team with multiple assignments per week? If so, we’d love to have you at Religion News Service (RNS), the 75-year-old secular news and opinion outlet that covers all things religion, from the political alliances of the religious right (and the revived religious left) to shake-ups in the major denominations to trends and innovation in worship and religious life. This internship includes some story-loading and other routine website-management chores, but candidates should expect to pitch frequently and be busy every day with reporting and writing. Because our newsroom operates almost entirely virtually, we expect interns to be self-motivated and independent. Knowledge of religious doctrines or practices is not required, but a curiosity about the cultural and political ramifications of belief and a willingness to do your homework are musts.

ADDITIONAL INFO:

Candidates should expect to pitch story ideas frequently and be busy every day with reporting and writing. Interns will also have some story-loading and other routine website-management chores.

St. Paul, Minnesota
Sahan Journal is excited to invite a data reporter to join our newsroom for a summer or fall fellowship. 

Since its founding in 2019, Sahan Journal has produced groundbreaking local news coverage about education, health care, immigration policy, elections, climate, policing, entrepreneurship, working, housing, and more. Our 12-person newsroom frequently frames stories through the lenses of equity, access, and accountability. (In October 2022, Sahan Journal received the "Rising Star Award" from the Reporters Committee for Freedom of the Press, recognizing our ongoing coverage of widespread fraud in federal food programs.   The ideal candidate will be a talented data journalist who can help our reporting staff to add data and data visualizations to daily and weekly stories. Given the timeframe of the fellowship, we expect that a reporter will largely work with data published by agencies across city, county, and state government. Think: housing inspections, vaccination dashboards, police reports, business filings, property tax records.   Sahan Journal’s reporters are highly collaborative and generous colleagues. An ideal candidate will enjoy the opportunity to share methods, practices, and magical tricks for analyzing and presenting data in local news and features.   

Finally, Sahan Journal would welcome data-driven insights into the immigrant communities we cover. Help us dig into the latest Census reports to learn more about immigration patterns for the populations that represent the future of Minnesota: people from Somalia, Ethiopia, Liberia, Mexico and Central America, Laos, Myanmar, India, China, and more.   Our diverse, 12-person editorial team can’t cover everything. But our journalism can change the news narratives in communities that have been ignored—or poorly served—by mainstream news. And we can do it in a supportive newsroom that reflects our talents, values, and vision.   Sahan Journal’s supportive and equitable work culture is committed to developing the potential of our staff and honoring their health and wellbeing.

ADDITIONAL INFO:

Tasks the intern would be asked to perform:

-Short-turnaround data analysis for weekly stories and longer term data projects/requests  

-Help Sahan Journal reporters to add data and data visualizations to their stories about health care, education, housing, working, etc.  

 -Work with data that has already been published or is available at different state and city agencies (e.g., housing inspections)  

-Analyze 2020 Census data to unlock demographic insights about immigrant communities  

-Offer occasional trainings and presentations to Sahan Journal reporters  

-Create reports on immigrant demographics in Minnesota to be used for future features

Beat(s) the intern will work on: 

-data for daily and weekly news stories 

-immigrant demographics in Minnesota


COMPENSATION AND TERMS: Summer or Fall Internship. The internship is 12 weeks. Salary is $800/weeks. No additional benefits are included.


ELIGIBILITY: M.S. and M.A. students graduating from Columbia Journalism School in May 2023 or August 2023 are eligible.

Tucson, AZ or Remote

TucsonSentinel.com, an award-winning nonprofit independent newsroom that informs Southern Arizonans about the community challenges and unique culture of our Borderlands, is accepting applications for internships, including graduate-level Sentinel Reporting Fellows.

Founded in 2010, the Sentinel is the only locally owned source for watchdog reporting focused squarely on our community — our newsroom is supported by people who back our mission of deep, authentic journalism that reflects Southern Arizona.

Tucson Sentinel has become a national leader in rebuilding the local news business, with Editor & Publisher Dylan Smith serving as the founding Chairman of Local Independent Online News Publishers and a member of the SPJ Ethics Committee. Our journalists have earned numerous state and national awards for political reporting, community service journalism, photography and investigations.

Our interns are generally graduate students and some juniors and seniors with newsroom experience.

Our interns generally undertake a variety of assignments and duties, rather than being tasked with a particular beat. That includes assisting our team with reporting on local politics and public policy, immigration and border stories, environmental reporting, and working with our Report for America corps members on IDEA (inclusivity, diversity, equity & access) stories.

Experience in reporting hard news on a deadline basis is necessary. We look for crisp, concise and insightful writing, a dedication to accuracy, and a willingness to learn. Investigative/enterprise chops, photo/video experience and bilingual (English/Spanish) skills are pluses.

Former Sentinel interns have gone on to be top journalists at many local and national online, print and radio news outlets — from political correspondents to editorial page editors — and we're proud to offer opportunities for young reporters to sharpen their skills and expand their capabilities.

COMPENSATION AND TERMS: Summer or Fall Internship. The internship is 12 weeks. Salary is $700/week. No additional benefits are included.


ELIGIBILITY: M.S. and M.A. students graduating from Columbia Journalism School in May 2023 and August 2023 are eligible.


TO APPLY: Complete this online application, which includes uploading the following materials:

 Columbia Journalism School, through the Pulitzer Center on Crisis Reporting, is providing 10 reporting grants for Class of 2023 graduates of the M.S. and M.A. programs of the Columbia Journalism School.

These grants will support in-depth reporting on topics of local, national or global importance, including investigations of systemic problems that are often overlooked by mainstream media. Preference will be given to underreported stories that deal with marginalized social sectors, connect local stories to national and global issues, and examine the impact of public policy and both state and private institutions on the environment and public welfare. Proposals will be considered for new reporting projects and/or supplementary work on thesis and other projects. Safety and security will be taken into consideration when reviewing the applications.

Five of the 10 grants will be awarded to projects related to international issues with funds provided by the Li Center for Global Journalism at Columbia Journalism School.

Each recipient will be awarded a grant of $4,000. Fellows will receive $2,500 upon selection, and the balance of the stipend ($1,500) will be paid upon submission of final deliverables.

We will support projects across all media platforms and provide mentorship throughout the reporting process and support in getting the projects published. Team proposals will also be considered. All team members must be from the Columbia Journalism School's Class of 2023 (M.S. or M.A. program). The grant amount is the same for solo and team projects.

Decisions will be made by early June .

J-School-based Fellowship | New York City
Columbia Journalism Review seeks reporters who want to spend nine months honing their skills at the nation’s most respected media monitor. This is not an internship; the CJR Fellows will receive entry-level research appointments.

The Fellows pitch, research, report and write stories about journalism news and trends for cjr.org and may also contribute to our print editions. They periodically assist senior editors with vital tasks, including fact checking, social-media promotion, and website production. But most of the time they are doing their own work, and they’re encouraged to voice their ideas and participate in all aspects of the magazine’s production. In addition, the Fellows participate in the Delacorte Lecture series and ambitious group projects published by CJR. The Fellows will also serve as liaisons from both the Delacorte Center and CJR to the Journalism School’s faculty and the wider university. Among their responsibilities will be identifying new opportunities to advance the Delacorte Center’s and CJR’s goals.

Former CJR fellows are scattered across the media universe, from The New York Times and TIME magazine to Mother Jones and The New Yorker.

TERMS: The job includes benefits and begins September 1, 2023 and runs through June 30, 2024.

ELIGIBILITY:  All May and August 2023 J-school graduates from the M.S. and M.A. programs are eligible to apply.

TO APPLY:  The online application includes uploading the following materials:

  1. Brief Cover letter (address it to “Kyle Pope, Editor and Publisher”). This letter of interest must include three short pitches for stories you think CJR should do. Please also describe any special experience or skills in reporting, editing, data, visual, audio, or multimedia journalism, social media, newsletters, graphics, and other relevant areas.
  2. Resume (one page) that includes three professional references
  3. Links to samples of your work (unpublished is okay)

Cover stories for the magazine have included packages on iconic entertainers like George Clooney, Morgan Freeman, Helen Mirren, Bob Dylan, Carlos Santana, Jamie Lee Curtis and Halle Berry.

This is an exclusive internship between THE CITY and Columbia Journalism School.

The intern will be a tenacious reporter with a demonstrated interest in shoe leather reporting in New York City’s five boroughs. Familiarity with New York City and its underreported communities are a plus but not a requirement. Foreign language skills will be a plus but not a requirement. Specific investigative skills aren’t as critical as doggedness. THE CITY intern will be a self-starter with story ideas who will be expertly mentored and edited by the pros at THE CITY.

COMPENSATION AND TERMS: Compensation will be $800/week for 10 weeks of summer. This internship will be funded by THE CITY and the Tamer Center for Social Enterprise at Columbia University. The Tamer Center for Social Enterprise provides internship funding for students who take summer internships at start-ups dedicated to the common good. For more information: https://www8.gsb.columbia.edu/socialenterprise/careers/internships/columbia-students

The internship will run for 10 weeks during the summer. The start date can be negotiated per mutual agreement, but the internship must conclude by Aug. 26, 2023. There is no guarantee of a position at THE CITY following the end of the internship, but the selected intern will end the summer with many writing samples and on-the-ground reporting experience for this award-winning digital news publication.

ELIGIBILITY: All M.S. and M.A. students graduating in May 2023 are eligible. The fellowship is contingent upon the student applying for fellowship funding from The Tamer Center for Social Enterprise. Upon accepting the offer from THE CITY, the student will receive close guidance from Gina Boubion in the Office of Career Development on how to apply for The Tamer Center for Social Enterprise funding.

Remote

New Lines Magazine is accepting applications for a 3-month-long journalism fellowship program in the summer of 2023. This fellowship will be based remotely and will work closely with New Line’s editorial team on a wide range of global and U.S. stories, assist in editing, and contribute to social media and audience engagement.

About New Lines: New Lines is an American magazine for the best ideas and writing from around the world. We specialize in long-form essays and reportage that aim to make the past relevant and the present grounded in history.

We began as a global affairs magazine focused primarily on the Middle East because we felt that this region, for so long the center of U.S. foreign policy, needed far more coverage from those who have lived and worked there. Many of our staff cut their teeth covering revolutions, wars and terrorism across different countries in the Middle East — often from the perspective of someone born and raised in places on which they were reporting. More information here.

Who we are looking for: We are looking for driven and resourceful candidates who are passionate and eager to push the boundaries of storytelling. Fellows will be mentored by seasoned journalists, and will have opportunities to research and pitch their own stories. The emphasis for this fellowship is on storytelling and we are looking for applicants who thrive in these media and are hungry to produce content that matters. Candidates with data, multi-media and investigative skills are valued. We are a small but growing outfit, and we are expanding beyond our Middle East focus to cover stories from around the globe. We rely heavily on freelancers in the field and order to ensure high quality content, we aim to develop, commission and edit stories from all over the world that give a more reflective and nuanced perspective than one might find in legacy media. Our editors are based in Washington, D.C., New York, London, Beirut, Tunisia and they oversee freelancers from all over the globe.


COMPENSATION AND TERMS: One position is full time and one position is part-time (20 hours/per week).  Fellows will be provided a stipend of $25 / hour.


ELIGIBILITY: All May 2023 J-school graduates from the M.S. and M.A. programs are eligible to apply.


TO APPLY: Complete this, which includes uploading the following materials:

  1. Brief Motivation Letter: address it to “Rasha Elass, Editorial Director, New Lines Magazine”
  2. CV or Resume (one page) that includes three professional references
  3. Three examples of your work, published or unpublished

Ridgeland, Miss.
Mississippi Center for Investigative Reporting's Investigative Reporter, Jerry Mitchell, and his Managing Editor, Debbie Skipper, have won more than 30 national awards together. This summer, you’ll get the opportunity to work on an investigative project into sexual abuse that continues to occur behind bars. In 2003, Congress adopted the Prison Rape Elimination Act, but experts say the act is hollow because the law does nothing to punish rape inside state prisons and jails. A recent Senate investigation found that male prison workers have sexually abused women in at least two-thirds of the nation’s federal prisons, and experts believe a probe of the nation’s jails would yield similar results. Experts say there is an epidemic of sexual assault and abuse in America’s prisons and jails — a dirty secret known to those in corrections, but virtually known to the public. We are looking for a reporting candidate that can help us dig deeper into this important story and work with others on a national database to catalogue all the sexual abuse by officers inside the nation’s jails and prisons.



COMPENSATION AND TERMS: Summer Internship - start date is flexible, but May 29 is preferred. The internship is 12 weeks. Pay rate is $25/hour. No additional benefits are included.


ELIGIBILITY: M.S. and M.A. students graduating from Columbia Journalism School in May 2023 are eligible. 


TO APPLY: Complete this online application, which includes uploading the following materials

  1. Cover Letter: address it to "Jerry Mitchell, Investigative Reporter"
  2. Resume (one page). Please include names and contact information of three references (can be J-School professors).
  3. Three clips or links to your work (any medium, unpublished is okay)

Brooklyn, NY


The Trace, America’s only nonprofit newsroom exclusively devoted to covering the gun violence epidemic, is hiring an audience engagement intern. This paid, full-time internship begins in June or September and runs 12 weeks.

The intern will be a member of a three-person audience team that distributes The Trace’s content across social platforms, via newsletters, and in collaboration with our publication partners.

The Trace is a distributed newsroom, with staffers in at least seven states, and most of our staff works exclusively remotely. An intern based in New York City would have the option to work in person from our Brooklyn office, though none of our audience staff are based there. This internship can also be performed remotely from within the U.S. 

The audience engagement intern will be responsible for:

- Implementing and informing The Trace’s social media strategy across Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and other platforms

- Supporting promotion plans for The Trace’s stories, from explainers and news updates to features and investigations

- Assisting with web production, including photo selection and homepage updates

- Tracking the impact of our journalism

- Assisting with newsletter production and writing as needed

- Working with editors to design and execute enterprising engagement projects

- Pitching in on other tasks and projects as needed in our small newsroom


Candidates will have the opportunity to pitch stories for The Trace, but should note that this is not a reporting job.


The ideal candidate will have:

The ability to write clean, compelling copy, and an eye for factual and grammatical errors. Ideas for how The Trace can reach new audiences and better serve existing ones. Prior experience managing social accounts for a newsroom, including student newsrooms, or at least an interest in learning more about audience engagement work. Experience with or familiarity with at least one of the following: Buffer, Google Analytics, Parsely, Canva, and Wordpress-based content management systems.

We know that all of the attributes and interests listed here won’t apply to all candidates. If you think you’d be a great fit and have skills and qualifications not mentioned in this listing, we encourage you to submit an application and tell us why you’d thrive in the role.

We strongly encourage people of color, women, people with disabilities, and LGBTQ+ people, or anyone else who comes from a background underrepresented in media to apply. 

TO APPLY: Please include a resume; in lieu of a cover letter, we ask that you answer a few questions about your experience and goals. We’ll also ask you for a few examples of your work.

QUESTIONS? Email us at jobs@thetrace.org with questions about the role or how to apply. Please do not reach out to check on the status of your application before we have contacted you; we will do our best to respond to candidates in a timely manner."

COMPENSATION AND TERMS: Summer Internship. The Internship is 12 weeks. Salary is $1,218 per week in NYC, and $1,125/week elsewhere, plus benefits.

An Arm and a Leg is a podcast about why health care costs so freaking much, and what we can maybe do about it. It’s made by journalists who like a challenge: We’ve chosen to take one of the most enraging, terrifying, depressing parts of American life… and create something entertaining, empowering, and useful. An Arm and a Leg is audio journalism as storytelling, consumer advocacy, and community-building. So, a little ambitious.  

Our podcast publishing partner is Kaiser Health News. 

In addition to the podcast, we’ve created a newsletter, First Aid Kit, that distills some of the most useful information we’ve uncovered into a user-friendly, easily-shareable format. 

Interns can expect to be involved in all stages of reporting and production for the show, our newsletters, and our online and social presence, including: 

  • Conducting interviews and backgrounding interview subjects 
  • Reviewing and distilling scholarly research, court records, and other documents to share with the team, and the audience 
  • Participating in edits 
  • Directing tracking sessions
  • Creating rough cuts of episodes 
  • Drafting newsletters, web copy, and social media (all of which are considered editorial products) 
  • There will be more. 

This year, we are taking on new challenges, including a major investigative project, in coordination with NPR and other partners, and new initiatives to involve listeners more deeply and directly in our work. It’s going to be fun, and because we’re a tiny team, you’ll be part of it all. 

About you: We expect that you’re interested in audio journalism and have some basic experience with recording and editing tools. But we figure we may need to train you on the specific tools we use (primarily Reaper, Descript, and TalkSync for audio), and you may still be getting your legs under you. 

We hope you’ll be excited for our ambitious, eclectic approach to journalism: We’re intellectually rigorous and ambitious; we value pleasure and narrative power; we see ourselves as working both for and with our listeners and readers, and we’re always looking for ways to invite deeper connection and participation. We intend for the work to be fun and meaningful for everyone involved. 

Because our work tackles a problem that hits people across many divides in American life — and that exacerbates many profound inequities — we know we do our best work when our staff reflects the greatest-possible diversity, and when our work practices reflect our commitment to equity, inclusion, and the honoring of multiple voices. 

We strongly encourage people of all backgrounds, races, genders and abilities to apply. We're a tiny shop. There's so much more to do. But we're proud of our staff's diversity, and we work hard to keep our work culture equitable and inclusive. It's a must: People could always work for bigger outfits with deeper pockets. 


COMPENSATION AND TERMS: Summer Internship. The Internship is 12 weeks. Salary is $800 per week. No additional benefits are included.

LOCATION: Remote


ELIGIBILITY: M.S. and M.A. students graduating from Columbia Journalism School in May 2023 are eligible.
