Internship (Non Paid) Culture English Media-Journalism

Opportunity Description

Do you love writing and wonder how you can start to/continue to develop your published writing portfolio? Well, you’re in luck, because we could really use someone like you!

Admissions.Blog is an undergraduate admissions-focused news and opinion website dedicated to bringing people news and views related to all things undergraduate admissions.

Our news articles and guest columns are regularly viewed by thousands of site visitors each day, and we are now currently looking to amplify the student voice. 

Are you a high school senior who has just completed the college admissions process or a high school junior who is now beginning it in earnest who has something to add to the conversation revolving around the ever-changing and highly subjective college admissions process? Did you get into your dream college? Did you get rejected from every college on your list? Do you feel as though you are getting the short end of the stick in the college admissions process? Do you have a strong opinion about how the admissions process could be reformed to be more student-centered? If you answered "Yes!" to any of the questions above, we may very well want to publish a guest column written by you on our site. 

For unpaid guest writer student interns we don’t require a certain amount of columns, but it would be nice if you could give us an indication as to how many you would like to write. Competitive candidates for this role must be fluent in English writing, and ideally highly articulate and capable of structuring their column(s) professionally and succinctly while ensuring their unique perspective shines through. 

Please note that we are also seeking students interested in serving as an intern reporter (writing guest articles about the latest admissions news and stats). This latter intern function is only sought for the months of June and July. The former guest columnist function is is an ongoing recruitment. 

To be considered, please submit your cover letter (with proposed column or column abstract) and resume.
