FiveThirtyEight is looking for a summer intern to help with the site’s podcast and videos. The paid intern will divide his or her time equally between conceiving and researching topics for the podcast and video interviews; editing and producing; and helping package the shows for online and social media distribution.
We’re looking for someone with basic video or audio editing skills, some experience in a newsroom or radio station, a keen interest in data-driven journalism, and a willingness to work hard. Both the podcast and video ventures are launching this spring, so this intern would be part of the development of a new show — exciting!
Our internship program runs June 8 through Aug. 14. You must be available for the duration of the internship, which is based in New York. You must be enrolled in a U.S. college or university and taking at least one class at the time of application.
For more details, read the job description linked above. Applicants must apply online. We will not look at applications emailed to us. The positions are filled on a rolling basis.
