Globe coop deadline March 1, Propublica seeks interns

If you're interested in the Globe coop positions that run from June to December, the deadline is March 1. This is a pretty extensive application, so you'd better get on it. You will need to have at least one substantive internship previously to have a competitive application for this.

Distributed Reporting / Social Media Intern

ProPublica offers one distributed reporting/ social media internship each spring, summer and fall. The spring and fall internships last 16 weeks. The summer internship lasts 12 weeks. The internship is full-time, based in New York, and pays $700 per week.

We are hiring immediately for the spring internship. Applications for the summer should be sent by the end of March.

The distributed reporting/social media intern will work closely with Amanda Michel, editor of distributed reporting. Applicants should have experience reporting and/or managing volunteers (or online organizing) and a track-record of innovation. The intern will assist Amanda on collaborative reporting projects (such as ProPublica’s Super Bowl Blitz and Stimulus Spot Check, and help manage ProPublica’s social media presence.

If you would like to apply, then please send a cover letter, your resume and a portfolio to amanda.michel@propublica.org.
