We offer a variety of internship opportunities, including for reporters and photographers and those interested in social media and in becoming editorial assistants. Carolina Public Press is a highly efficient, fast-paced news organization. We’re online, but we aren’t opinion bloggers or advocacy journalists. We are a new breed of media organization, one that’s received national, regional and local support for high-quality, unbiased in-depth and investigative reporting. We are also the first nonprofit online news service in Western North Carolina to be accepted to the N.C. Press Association.
Our internships are individualized, not cookie-cutter busy work in a corporate environment. Expect to have fun, to challenge and to be challenged and to learn a ton in our fast-paced online nonprofit media project. Your portfolio and resume will thank you.
Based in Asheville, Carolina Public Press accepts interns from across the state. Interns are encouraged, but not required, to live in Asheville during the duration of their internship. We’ve had students from Asheville High School, UNC Chapel Hill and Appalachian State University intern with Carolina Public Press.
Applicants must have access to a car, computer and other necessary equipment needed during their internship. Applicants are also encouraged to seek school credit for their Carolina Public Press internship; internships are generally unpaid, but approved expenses will be reimbursed.
