Accepting Applications: Choose901 Interns

Update: Applications are now open for all 2020-21 internships!

We are looking for some talented individuals to join our staff for our writing internship program.

We’ve switched up the internship terms to offer 3 different tracks: 

  1. January 14, 2020 – August 18, 2020
  2. September 1, 2020 – April 20, 2021
  3. Summer Only*: May 12, 2020 – July 31, 2020
    *The abbreviated summer schedule is for students who attend college out of town.

This is an unpaid academic internship, with the expectation of 2 hours per week in our office, to be scheduled based on your availability (and you’re welcome to be in the office as much as you’d like beyond that!). Hours spent working with us can count for volunteer/community service hours.

All interns must be available on Tuesday mornings at 9 am for the weekly editorial meeting. 

Perks of the Internship:

  • Free coffee and snacks? Yup.
  • Resume workshop.
  • Professional development opportunities.
  • …and more. So much more that we’re not even sure what else, but it’ll be awesome.
