Apply now for an L.A. Times internship – for Reynolds School students only

Applications due by noon on January 30, 2019.

The Los Angeles Times will offer a 10-week paid internship to a Reynolds School news student in summer 2019. See the details below and email your application by Noon (12 p.m.) on Wednesday, January 30, to Professor Alan Deutschman at adeutschman@unr.edu.

The intern will help cover the business beat, reporting and writing on deadline for the website as well as the print edition of the newspaper. This is an exceptional opportunity to work at one of America’s leading news organizations. The ideal candidate is a self-starter with a strong interest in a news career and previous experience interning in a professional newsroom.

The intern will receive a generous stipend of $700 a week for the 10-week period (which will be funded through a partnership with the LA Times and with funds from our Donald W. Reynolds Chair in Business Journalism Endowment.).

If you’re interested, please write a cover letter and attach a resume and up to 12 samples of your work. The samples should demonstrate the range as well as the quality of what you can produce. If you’ve done a previous internship at a news organization, please include a letter of recommendation from your primary editor or mentor there.

Professor Alan Deutschman will lead a committee to select the top candidates and present their applications to the L.A. Times editors, who will make the final selection.

If you have any questions about this opportunity, please contact Professor Deutschman.
