APHA’s Communications Department offers one summer internship, as well as combined journalism/communication internships during the fall and spring semesters, to qualified students. Experience with deadlines, Associated Press/journalism style and social media is a plus, as is prior writing experience and a willingness to learn. Opportunities for internships are available year-round and last for a three- to four-month period. To assure that the intern maximizes her or his experience, we require that students work a minimum of four days a week. All APHA internships are unpaid. Start and end times are negotiable.
Applicants who meet the requirements and are interested in being considered for this internship should upload the following information:
- cover letter, indicating your specific area(s) of interest and expertise, what you hope to gain from an APHA internship, why you would like to intern at APHA and your availability and schedule;
- two writing samples, 1-2 pages each (published or from schoolwork); and
- three references (supply names, email addresses and phone numbers of three individuals who know you well enough to discuss your qualifications, e.g., an employer or professor).
(If you are uploading a pdf document, the document needs to be a file that was created and can be manipulated and converted in order to upload.)
Deadline date: Open Until Filled
