The Orange County Register will offer three dozen college internships at The Orange County Register in 2014. Generally, applicants should be juniors or seniors at four-year universities, graduate students, or recent graduates whose career aspirations are committed to journalism.
We’re looking for reporters, photographers, page designers, copy editors, graphics artists, and journalists with Web, multimedia, social media, and broadcast skills. Verbal fluency in a second language – especially Spanish or Vietnamese – is a valued skill given Orange County’s diversity. From each pool of candidates, we will select the interns whose skills and experiences best match our needs.
Spring: 10 internships. 150 hours over 10 weeks
Summer: 15 internships. 400 hours over 10 weeks
Fall: 10 internships. 150 hours over 10 weeks
