PA Media Group LogoPA Media Group, a division of Advance Local, has Summer Internships for Journalism interns in Mechanicsburg, PA.

As one of the nation’s leading media companies, we are seeking talented and motivated individuals for our paid national talent development program. Participants in the program will be immersed in our operation, learning all the facets of today’s journalism and reporting. The 2020 summer internship program is a springboard for talented individuals with demonstrated interest and skills in journalism, storytelling, video and news reporting.

Content (News) Intern

The Content (News) Intern will produce stories for our readers on local issues and topics. You’ll report directly to an Editor and have the opportunity to make significant contributions to PA Media Group as well as the larger community. If you have exceptional writing skills and familiarity with web publishing tools, this could be the summer job you’re looking for. Our interns don’t fetch coffee; they create content and build audiences through engaging stories on high-value topics. This means you should have the ability to work under tight deadlines and appropriately prioritize tasks. You’ll produce posts, shoot photos and video at events and perhaps host a FB live event. You’ll write/post with frequency and urgency. This is an opportunity to gain an insider’s look at digital journalism and audience building in today’s 24/7 news environment.

Preference is given to college juniors and seniors pursuing a degree in Journalism, Digital Media or Communications.

Resumes and writing samples will be accepted now until January 24, 2020.
