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

Spring ’13 Internship- Music Writer
Develop your own portfolio of published work while contributing to a major music industry website. This is a volunteer, part-time, work-from-home position for individuals who wish to gain experience in the world of music journalism, and have their work published.

LiveMusicGuide.com is one of the leading live music search engines as well as sources of music news online. Over 265,000 Google visitors type the keywords Live Music Guide every month – and that is without our extensive investment in online and offline marketing. Our live music search engine provides users with information about 75 thousand national and international live music events DAILY. We cover over 50,000 artists, and thousands of music venues. Livemusicguide.com has few peers simply as a factor of our coverage scale.

Candidates will have the opportunity to contribute by publishing their own original articles on the website contingent upon editorial review of all submissions and approval for publishing. In addition, if you choose to participate in our credited internship program, candidates will perform various functions such as research, fact checking, and basic editing duties.

After the candidate has established him or herself as a mature, reliable member of our team they may be asked to perform duties in which they liaise with record labels, artists, public relations professionals, and music venues’ management. In some situations, the candidate may be offered an opportunity to interview artists, industry professionals, and receive press credentials to attend concerts for review.

Credited & Non-Credited Internships & Staff Writers
You may apply your experience with LMG to your resume as an internship. Your school may require an internship during your tenure, but if you plan to compete with the number of journalism majors in the job market, you will quickly find that it is important to have a number of internships under your belt.

Contributors and Staff Writers
All candidates who choose to write articles for the site start their career as “Contributors”. If you write well, demonstrate reliability, and are able to integrate our guidance, you may be asked to step up to Staff Writer. Writers may cover general music news, concert tour news, or album reviews. If you are proactive and really prepare you may conduct artist interviews.

All participants are provided with a personal reference when they engage their job searches. In addition, you will experience a vastly enhanced “Google Presence”; when browsers type your name into Google, your articles will appear, letting everyone know that you are a published journalist.

If you have always hoped for a vehicle from which to have your voice heard, LiveMusicGuide.com can be that platform.

Arizona State Senate: 2013 Page Program & Internship
(This is not a for-credit internship at the Cronkite School. I listed it only because you might have a Political Science minor or dual major and it might help with your Poli-Sci program.)

The Arizona State Senate is currently hiring temporary full-time and part-time Senate Pages for the upcoming 2013 Session. The paid internship position pays an hourly wage of $9.00. The Legislative session is expected to last one hundred calendar days (however, past sessions have extended anywhere from April to late June). Work would begin the second Monday in January and terminate upon the conclusion of session.

The Senate Page program provides an exciting up-close look and behind the scenes experience of the Legislative process in the State of Arizona. Pages are non-partisan staff and serve all 30 members of the Senate. The most important responsibility of a Page is to attend to the needs of the Senators while on the Senate Chamber floor during formal sessions, in standing committee meetings and in Party caucuses. Pages assist in preparing the Senate Chamber for floor sessions by distributing bills, amendments, and calendars to the desks of members. Duties consist primarily of delivery of correspondence and legislative material (bills, amendments, calendars, etc.) within the Senate building and the Capitol complex.

Substantive work may include assisting the public, primarily through Constituent services casework under the direction of the Constituent Services manager. Constituent work may include assisting in the drafting of correspondence, contacting constituents via phone or email and conducting research at the request of Senate members.

Other duties may include setting up electronic and AV equipment, general delivery of memos and messages, handling incoming/outgoing mail and any other general assistance that is required. Pages assisting Senators during Floor sessions and committees hearings are expected to stay for the duration of those meetings, which sometimes extend into the evening hours.

Pages are encouraged to track legislation, policy, issues, and legislative trends throughout the session and relate them to their college studies. (Note: The Senate Page program is not affiliated with the Arizona Legislative internship program)
