Business Insider is hiring an intern to work with our military and defense news team immediately. We’re looking for applicants who are news-obsessed, quick to learn, cool under pressure, careful, and appreciative of our approach to journalism. This is an important internship that will involve working closely with top editors and journalists across our team. Responsibilities will include spotting and covering important breaking news stories as they unfold, curating interesting photographic slideshows, and assisting with syndicating posts on geopolitics.
As for qualifications, a journalism background and experience writing for a news site always helps, as do copy-editing skills and light HTML and Photoshop experience. Knowledge of social media and previous writing experience are both useful, too.
APPLY HERE with your resume, a cover letter, and links to several clips. Please note that this internship requires that you work in our Manhattan or San Francisco office. Interns are encouraged to work full-time (40 hours a week) if their schedule allows, and the internship can run for up to six months.
