The Washington Post is an operating division of The Washington Post Company and one of the nation’s premier newspapers. First published in 1877, it has a long history of journalistic excellence, perhaps best exemplified by reporters Bob Woodward and Carl Berstein’s investigative reporting of the Watergate scandal. For this, and many other cases of exceptional news coverage, The Washington Post has won more than 50 Pulitzer Prizes.
The Washington Post offers two separate internship programs: the business and production internship and the newsroom internship. Opportunities are available in several different departments, including accounting, business, advertising, circulation, human resources, marketing, production, public relations, editorial, graphic design and photography. Past interns have taken on such projects as developing a marketing and circulation plan for building awareness of and delivering the Express newspaper on college campuses and creating and implementing an effective tracking system for new advertising sales prospects.
Business and production internship : applicants must be enrolled in an accredited two-or four-year undergraduate program. Newsroom internship: open to college juniors, seniors and grad students. Candidates with previous internships or experience at a college newspaper are preferred.
