Editorial Internship: We are looking for interns to contribute writing, research and online skills to our editorial department. Applicants should have some experience in journalism and journalism or communications majors are preferred.
Web Internship: Web interns will work directly under the Web Manager to maintain and grow amsterdamnews.com along with its offshoots. A basic knowledge of HTML and CMS experience is preferred but not required.
Social Media Internship: Social Media Interns will be working with our social media manager in order to maintain and grow our various platforms including Facebook, Twitter, Linkedin, Youtube etc.
Photography Internship: Photography interns, much like editorial interns above, function as reporters and researchers in the newsroom with a photography focus. Photo interns also are responsible for many of the online photo galleries and work based off event/interview schedules rather than on an hourly, in office schedule. In the past there has been the opportunity to take celebrity photos.
