THE WOODLANDS, TX – With summer vacation fast approaching, Woodlands Online is acutely aware that parents are wondering what they can do to keep their kids active during the break. We are delighted to announce our annual Student Internship Program, where we take growing minds and talents and hone them in a relaxed yet active work environment. We have four main departments looking to hire interns – Editorial, Sports, Photography and Video.
Several slots are open for students this summer!
Writing interns will learn journalism skills and be given assignments — and the freedom to come up with their own assignments — to research, interview, and write feature stories for full byline and credit on our site and social media channels. All topics relevant to The Woodlands region – including politics, community, events, human interest, editorials, reviews or investigative reporting. Sports Interns will accompany the Sports Director to sporting events to do live reporting, interviews, recaps and photography. Photography interns will learn practical photography skills and will be sent to events to take photos for full photo credit. Video interns will respond to the director of videography and learn how to exploit and produce video in the studio and on location, as well as host live events and produce video clips.
Education and youth activity are key factors in our mission, and we believe the best preparation for a student to meet real-world challenges is hands-on experience. If you have or know of students who have an interest or talent in photography, videography, writing or reporting, we would love to consider them for our internship program. With us, for just a few hours a week, they can gain valuable experience and earn credits in return to help us grow.
Interested students should email [email protected] and be prepared to complete a short application form and have it signed by their parent or legal guardian.
