The Wisconsin Jewish Chronicle is offering a remote journalism internship for college students. The Chronicle has one opening for fall 2021.

Full-time jobs and other internships often require or prefer previous professional experience. The Chronicle internship is designed to provide you with a good rung on that ladder. You will publish work samples that you can show to prospective employers. Journalism organizations tend to prefer published work samples from outside academia. 

This is an unpaid position that will give you writing and reporting experience. You will learn a lot. 

If you join the Chronicle, your supervisor will be Editor Rob Golub, winner of ten Milwaukee Press Club awards over the last five years and former chief editor of the daily newspaper in Racine, Wis. Golub has been running this internship for 15 years. His “graduates” have gone onto Facebook, Buzzfeed, Moment magazine, and daily newspapers everywhere.

You can do this internship from anywhere, so long as you have Internet and a laptop. Expect about 5-10 hours of work per week during school.

The Chronicle is now accepting applications on a rolling basis for a 2021 fall internship. Send your resume, writing samples and current GPA to Chronicle@MilwaukeeJewish.org.

Who Is JRC?

 

The Jewish Reconstructionist Congregation (JRC), located in Evanston, Illinois is a diverse, participatory, and sacred community dedicated to a daring, deeply-rooted Judaism.

 

We want you to join JRC’s Religious School team! Our program for Pre-K - 7th grades centers authentic Jewish experiences where learners “do Jewish” rather than talk about being Jewish. Learners will gain confidence to engage with Jewish texts, traditions, and prayers that support them in their lives right now through a Reconstructionist approach, and understand how Judaism supports them in healing the world and being their whole selves. We offer small group Hebrew classes, interactive elective programming with things like art, sports, creative writing and more in our innovative program!

Pay is $4,500, at a rate of $45.00 an hour, and could potentially be more based on acquisition of a grant.
