Submissions will be accepted for internships working alongside some of the best designers in the business. Applicants should be able to demonstrate a strong visual sense for page design outside the classroom and have newsroom deadline experience. We're looking for interns to work in multiple areas of our expansive editorial operation, including News, Features, Sports and Business. Design internships do not require a car. These are paid internships and summer placements usually run from mid-June to late August, with rolling start dates to accommodate school schedules.
QUALIFICATIONS: Applicants must be actively working toward an undergraduate or graduate degree and must be eligible to work in the U.S. Graduates may qualify if you've finished school within six months of the start of the internship. Internships are for students who have not worked professionally as staff journalists. Little training is offered, so previous internship experience is preferred.
TO APPLY: Submit a cover letter; resume with three references; one-page personal essay; and a link to up to 10 work samples. You may also submit your application by mail to Tracy Boucher / Director of News Development, Los Angeles Times, 202 W. 1st St., Los Angeles, CA 90012.
DEADLINE: April 1 for the summer 2017 placement. On occasion we have internships available in spring and fall and will post such opportunities on www.latimes.com/interns.
