The Virginian-Pilot is now accepting internship applications for summer 2022.
We’re the largest newspaper in Virginia, and our newsrooms feature award-winning journalists eager to help you learn. Our coverage area includes many cities, miles of beaches, the world’s largest Navy base and more.
Our interns are paid, and treated as regular newsroom staff members, learning on the job and helping to produce Virginia’s best news coverage.
You will be assigned an editor and will participate in team meetings and training programs on topical subjects. Sessions in 2021 included a narrative writing workshop, FOIA training, court reporting and a workshop on how to start on a new beat.
The internship period lasts 12 weeks, and we offer internships in reporting, audience engagement, data journalism, and videography/photography. Our newsroom is currently working remotely and plans to for the foreseeable future. However, interns must be based in Hampton Roads and must be able to drive to assignments, if your job requires it.
The deadline to apply is November 12.
