New Media Internships
New media is transforming the news business. Traditional media firms such as newspapers, radio stations and television stations are becoming web-based news providers, delivering print, video and audio online.
A journalist’s responsibilities are changing as well. Many journalism jobs require writing an article, capturing photos and video, and promoting the story through multiple channels, such as social networks.
IHS sponsors paid internships with media outlets charging into this new landscape. These organizations seek individuals ready to diversify their skill set to report and deliver the news using the latest methods.
