Candidates for the Slatest internship must be available to work in Slate’s New York office or in Slate's D.C. office at least two days per week in the fall. Days and hours are flexible. Candidates must be highly energetic, self-starting individuals who have a nose for news, along with sharp and quick writing skills. Applicants should be tech savvy and have great editorial judgment. Previous reporting experience is a plus, and the ability to write clean, quick, and clear copy is a must. To apply, email a résumé and very brief statement of interest to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Photo and Art
Candidates for the photo and art internship must be available to work in Slate’s New York office at least two full days per week in the fall. They should be highly organized visual thinkers who are comfortable working efficiently and without much supervision. Interns will gain hands-on experience editing photos, producing slideshows, and selecting art. This is an editing—not shooting—internship; however, there are ample opportunities for motivated interns to work on special projects and publish their work. To apply, email a cover letter that clearly outlines your availability, a résumé, and links to visual works online (no PDF or attachment files please) to email@example.com.
