Business Insider is looking for an ambitious reporter and news junkie to join our team as a breaking news intern.
The breaking news intern would be part of a fast-moving team that follows world events and reports on them in real time across multiple social media platforms and on our website.
That means one day, he or she could be covering the mysterious jailbreak of Mexican drug kingpin El Chapo. The next, he might be covering a Republican primary debate live.
The ideal breaking news intern:
- Is an excellent storyteller — he or she is good at taking complex current events and presenting them in a compelling and relatable way
- Interprets news quickly and writes at lightning speed
- Produces clean, clear copy
- Lives for the thrill of getting faves on Twitter and likes on Instagram and Facebook
Our interns are an integral part of our team, and many of our current writers and editors started as interns. We seek out self-starters and people who are enthusiastic about collaborating with other reporters, video producers, social media editors, and other team members.
This position is at our Flatiron headquarters in New York City. Internships run for 6 months, and interns are encouraged to work up to 40 hours a week.
Apply HERE with a resume and cover letter telling us why you’re perfect for the job.
