Chicago Tribune Internship Program
The Chicago Tribune’s newsroom internship program seeks college juniors, seniors and graduate students for 12-week paid internships. Opportunities will be considered in all newsroom departments: metro, sports, business, graphics, copy editing, design, photo/video, entertainment, events, social media and lifestyle.
To be eligible, candidates must have completed at least one internship at a daily news organization other than their college paper. Additionally, candidates must be able to work in the United States legally. Interns will work 40 hours a week and must be able to, and often do, cover major stories their first days on the job.
Deadlines: The deadline for the highly competitive metro summer reporting internship is Nov. 1. There is no deadline for internships in other departments or for other seasons of the year. However, the earlier you apply, the more internships you will be considered for. It is not uncommon for students to apply in October for an internship the following summer, and we hire many of our summer interns in January and February.
