The PanAm Post is accepting interns on a rolling basis to join its talented team of reporters, editors, translators, and commentators. This is an exciting time for the bilingual outlet, as it rapidly expands its coverage, audience, and influence throughout the Americas.
Amid a fast-paced environment, each intern partners with a member of the outlet’s experienced and passionate staff, the one who best fits the intern’s interests. Staff members then make a concerted effort to get intern contributions published; that may include blog posts, news articles, interviews, video clips, and photography.
Interns commit to sixteen hours per week — in one day or split between two days — and the normal internship period is equivalent of three months.
