Herald Community Newspapers is seeking 2017 summer interns for our 15 community-based publications that stretch across Nassau County’s South Shore, from Valley Stream to Seaford, and Long Beach to Garden City.
Herald Community Newspapers is the largest publisher of community media on Long Island and one of the largest in New York state. Over the years, we have taken home hundreds of New York Press Association and Press Club of Long Island honors for journalistic excellence.
RCI, the Heralds’ parent company, also publishes LIHerald.com, the Pulitzer Prize-winning Riverdale Press in the Bronx, and the Jewish Star. And we are expanding to Nassau’s North Shore with new publications (details to be announced shortly).
Each summer, interns work side by side with our skilled editors and reporters, many of whom have graduated with journalism or communications degrees from Long Island universities, to learn about the ins and outs of a professional newsroom.
Summer internships are typically eight to nine weeks, and usually begin mid-May.
Summer interns should be enrolled in a qualified university-level program of study, working toward a bachelor’s or master’s degree in journalism, communications or English. Experience writing for a high school or college newspaper is a plus, but not required.
We welcome intern candidates to stop by our state-of-the-art offices, centrally located off the Meadowbrook Parkway, for an interview and tour.
