leave a comment »

We’re looking for a sharp, self-motivated college or graduate student to spend the summer working with the News Apps team, where you’ll help us gather and visualize data in a meaningful way and build useful, user-friendly web applications (some of which you can see here). As part of our team, you’ll write code on Monday that could be live on Wednesday, participate in college football picks 2014, the whole team experience. It’ll be great for the resume, not to mention your own sense of satisfaction.


This position is open to college juniors, seniors and graduate students with programming experience. Ideal candidates will have some journalism in their background which we can mold into a potential career.

Details and compensation

The Tribune’s 12-week internship program is part time, 20-24 hours a week, and pay is $10 hourly. (And we’re not evil taskmasters—we can be flexible with scheduling, as long as we work it out in advance.) You’re absolutely welcome to apply if you’re not local, but you’ll need to find your own accommodations.


To apply, email, and tell us why you’d like to waste a perfectly good summer working at a newspaper. Include your preferred start date and some type of resume-like rundown of your abilities and experience. Bonus points will be given to applicants with neat skills and/or a project or two in mind.

For a more thorough list of requirements and responsibilities, check out the official Tribune internship posting. You’ll have to fill that out eventually, but go ahead and email us first.
