Internship Opportunities

NATURE AND SCOPE

Worcester Sports Journal is pleased to offer a program of internship assignments to a limited number of qualified high school and college students. Our internships are non-paid and will be for high school or college credit only. Internships coincide with each particular school’s term, however, they should not be less than 6 weeks and no longer than 18 weeks. Students will be expected to work approximately 15-20 hours per week. Assignments are designed to supplement classroom study with actual hands-on experience, as students participate in special projects under the supervision of our professional staff and assignments are scheduled throughout the year. Interns receive no financial remuneration and ARE NOT in any way employees of Worcester Sports Journal. Participation in the program does not obligate Worcester Sports Journal to offer employment to the intern at any future time.

ELIGIBILITY

Candidates for internship assignments are selected without regard to age, sex, race, religion or national origin. Candidates must be high school or college students majoring in communication, journalism or photo journalism, and must be available to work a minimum of 15 hours per week, for a minimum of one semester, quarter or summer session. Admission to the program is competitive, as more students may apply each term than we can accommodate. Decisions on admission to the program are made by our management staff, based primarily on academic achievement, verification of internship (“For Credit”), and recommendations from faculty members.

APPLICATION PROCEDURE AND REQUIREMENTS

Interested candidates should submit an internship application along with verification from school, which authorizes them to internship for school credit and a letter of recommendation from a faculty member. Please send to:
