Dow Jones News Fund Summer Internship- Editing Exam
It’s that time again! Dr. Leslie-Jean Thornton will be proctoring the Dow Jones News Fund 2013 summer internship editing exams in a couple of weeks.

The internship is paid, prestigious and highly competitive. This hour-long exam is for those interested in the Digital Editing and News Editing programs. Those who are chosen (about 80, including business and sports interns) go to a two-week training session before heading to their assigned news organization, $1,000 scholarships, and travel stipends to training sites.

Dates of Exam:
Saturday, Oct. 27, 10:30 a.m.
Monday, Oct. 29, 1:30 p.m.
Place to be determined, but most likely conference room 375. You have an hour to complete it.

Apply online here: https://www.newsfund.org (register as “Intern applicant”)

Dr. Thornton will take care of getting your completed exams to Dow Jones by the Nov. 1 deadline, but you must complete all other online applications on your own. This will include writing an essay that is taken very seriously by the judging committee.

Those familiar with the exam know that it tests on knowledge of recent news (back about a year from September), geography (particularly that of the United States), grammar, word use, headline construction and critical thinking. This would include spotting libelous comment, factual inaccuracies, lapses in logic and inappropriate reporting. Practice exams (including answers) are available here: http://www.editteach.org/specialprojects?id=8

•Other Classes, Jobs, etc.: Participants must schedule classes, jobs, internships and any other responsibilities so they have either Monday and Wednesday or Tuesday and Thursday completely free from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. during the six-week period. Students also will be expected to work every other Friday.

How to Apply: The class is by instructor permission. Interested students should send a resume, three samples of journalistic work (published clips, websites, photos and/or broadcast packages) and a brief letter outlining their interest in the course to Greg Boeck by Nov. 1.
