Intern for Slate

The Slate Political Gabfest is hiring a fall intern!

The position is based in Washington, D.C. Candidates must be available on Wednesdays and Thursdays. They should be organized and self-directed. The ideal candidate is a fast and thorough researcher. Some writing experience is desired; radio production experience is a plus.

The internship has a flexible, part-time schedule. The hours can vary, but the position requires around 10 hours a week.

To apply, email the following to gabfest@slate.com before Aug. 19:

  • A résumé, and a brief cover letter that clearly outlines your availability and interest.
  • Suggest an "evergreen" topic for discussion by the Political Gabfest—a segment that could run at any time and isn’t necessarily tied to current headlines. Please include link suggestions. Make sure to explain why you think it’s  a good topic for John, Emily, and David. Please limit yourself to 200 words or less.

Please use the subject line "Slate Political Gabfest Internship."
