Here’s the sales pitch form another of the several internship/journalism programs based in Washington – although this one is for the summer:
Institute on Political Journalism in Washington, DC
June 7 – August 1 (Extended Deadline: April 4, 2014)
Unlike many other Washington, DC internship programs, we guarantee you an internship placement with a print or broadcast media outlet, new service, internet publication, public relations firm, Capitol Hill press office or advocacy organization. Our staff works to place you with an organization that fits your skills and career goals. You’ll gain real-world experience that will set you apart when it’s time to find your first job after graduation. Check out this video to hear from some of our program alumni on why interning in DC is an experience worth having!
