Business Insider, Inc. INSIDER editorial intern, politics in New York, New York

INSIDER is hiring a paid editorial intern to write about politics.

Interns on the politics team contribute to stories about things like congressional testimony against Supreme Court nominees and the states where the most U.S. presidents were born, researching, writing and producing content every day. Interns are an integral part of our team, and collaborate with reporters, producers, social media editors and other people across the newsroom.

We’re looking for an intern with the following:

• Excellent writing skills

• A passion for storytelling

• Interest in reporting on politics

• Familiarity with digital and social media

• Ability to work at a fast pace

Experience writing for a news site helps, as do copyediting skills and light HTML and Photoshop experience. You should be a voracious news reader who is eager to learn the ins and outs of a digital newsroom.

This is a paid internship based out of our New York office. Interns are encouraged to work 40 hours a week, and internships run for six months.

INSIDER is great journalism about what passionate people actually want to know. That’s everything from news to food, celebrity to science, politics to sports and all the rest. It’s smart. It’s fearless. It’s fun. We push the boundaries of digital storytelling. Our mission is to inform and inspire.
