This health-care company is headquartered in Dallas and has facilities splashed across Texas.
Applications opened last week for the Boston Globe summer intern program, which began more than 50 years ago as an opportunity for college students interested in journalism to gain practical experience on a major news organization.
The largest group of interns works in Metro as general assignment reporters. Other intern reporters are assigned to Sports, Living/Arts, Health/Science and Business. The Globe also has intern positions in the Photography and Editorial Design departments, and on the News copy desk. Internships are NOT limited to students with journalism majors. An aptitude for newspaper work is the most important qualification for the internship. However, a previous internship is recommended. Applicants must have a driver’s license and should be comfortable driving.
Summer interns work as full-time employees for 12 weeks, between Memorial Day and Labor Day. Interns are paid a weekly wage, and shifts vary. There is a writing coach who works exclusively with the interns, weekly critique sessions for the reporting interns, and weekly meetings with editors and staff members on a range of issues and topics pertaining to journalism.
Application forms can be obtained from: Paula Bouknight, Assistant Managing Editor/Hiring, The Boston Globe, P.O. Box 55819, Boston, MA 02205-5819 (617-929-3120), or downloaded from our website Sept. 1. Applications must be postmarked by Nov. 2.

Seven internships that go along with seven scholarships are available for next summer: four newspaper/magazine/online, one broadcast, one broadcast production, and one public relations.
