Herald Community Newspapers seek 2021 summer interns

Posted

Herald Community Newspapers is seeking 2021 summer interns for our 18 community-based publications that stretch across Nassau County’s South Shore, from Valley Stream to Seaford, and Long Beach to Garden City, as well as across parts of the North Shore, including Sea Cliff, Glen Head, Glen Cove and Oyster Bay.

Internships will likely be virtual, conducted by Zoom and phone in most cases.

Herald Community Newspapers is the largest publisher of community media on Long Island and one of the largest in New York state. Over the years, we have taken home hundreds of New York Press Association and Press Club of Long Island honors for journalistic excellence.

RCI, the Heralds’ parent company, also publishes LIHerald.com, the Pulitzer Prize-winning Riverdale Press in the Bronx and the Jewish Star.

Interns work side by side with our skilled editors and reporters, many of whom have graduated with journalism or communications degrees from Long Island universities, to learn about the ins and outs of a professional newsroom.

Summer internships are typically eight to nine weeks, and usually begin mid-May. Interns should be enrolled in a qualified university-level program of study, working toward a bachelor’s or master’s degree in journalism, communications or English. Experience writing for a high school or college newspaper is a plus, but not required.

The internship is work, but we also have our fun. Last year we took our interns surfing in Long Beach, and we end every summer with an intern luncheon.
