TPM interns are involved in every aspect of our operation and have a hand in everything we do. They work alongside our reporters to write and break stories, help our editors keep a finger on the pulse of the news day, and produce all kinds of digital media from youtube clips to mash-up photographs. The interns also attend weekly brown bag lunches with reporters, editors and publishing staff to learn the ins and outs of the new media business.
Our interns have moved on to jobs in new and old media alike, working for us, as well as The New Republic, The Wall Street Journal, Huffington Post, The New York Sun, The New Yorker, The Washington Post and more.
Interns receive a small stipend for the summer. The internship is 12-weeks long, June 3-August 23, and are based in TPM's New York City office.
Rising seniors, recent graduates, and graduate students, as well as relevant course of study, preferred. Qualified applicants can receive academic credit.
