NABJ Internships
Share |


NABJ is dedicated to expanding job opportunities for our student members and improving the media's coverage of the black community. NABJ annually awards summer internships to students committed to journalism careers. Successful candidates are offered positions in print, broadcast or online disciplines at selected news organizations around the country ranging from small black-owned weekly newspapers to major market dailies and broadcast outlets.  

 Students are placed in 10-week internships with small, medium and large newspapers, television and radio stations and online news services across the country. NABJ's summer internships give students hands-on reporting, editing, shooting and design experience in professional settings. Most journalism employers will not give permanent jobs to graduates who lack prior internship experience thus, it is essential that aspiring journalists obtain internships in journalism.
