Our Summer Internship Program is a highly selective 8 week paid national talent development program designed to be a springboard for individuals with a demonstrated interest in journalism, marketing or sales. Our summer interns will work with our local teams at an Advance Local affiliate in Alabama, Louisiana, Massachusetts, Michigan, New Jersey, Central New York, Ohio, Oregon, Staten Island or Pennsylvania.
As a participant you’ll be immersed in the local market for 8 weeks and then come together for a national summit in the New York City area with fellow interns from across the country. You will get a chance to network, hear from industry experts, and participate in a variety of activities around the city.
