JOB: Internship (VT/NH)

The Valley News is seeking a motivated intern to work with the newspaper’s three staff photographers and photo editor, covering a range of assignments and enterprise work. An award-winning 16,000 daily morning newspaper on the Vermont/New Hampshire border, the Valley News covers a region that includes 46 towns in four counties; its core area includes Hanover, Lebanon and Claremont, N.H., and White River Junction, Vt. The Valley News is owned by Newspapers of New England, a family-owned publisher of seven dailies and weeklies that also includes the Concord Monitor and the Daily Hampshire Gazette in Northampton, Mass.
The intern is treated as an equal in the newsroom. They are expected to get out of the office to find stories, as the rest of the photo staff does. This is where community journalism thrives. Those who do well are self-starters and have the curiosity to tell stories through the eyes of the areas residents. Photographers also produce weekly picture pages and long-term projects.
In addition to having an insured car, the intern must provide their own camera and basic lenses, which the newspaper insures and will cover necessary job-related repairs. The newspaper also has pool lighting equipment, Nikon cameras and a sports lens.
The internship covers six months – it’s important for the intern to work through the end of the year to cover holiday vacations. The pay is $400 per week, plus overtime when applicable. Mileage is also reimbursed. Please send a cover letter, resume and portfolio of about 20-30 images (CD is preferred). Application deadline for the next internship (July-Dec. 2014) is April 15, 2014.
