As a member of the media representing the Arizona Capitol Times, Summer and Fall interns will have access to the Legislature (when in session) and other government officials. We want our interns to get the most out of their time here. Job Duties: Interns will be assigned a variety of stories throughout their internship at the Arizona Capitol Times. They will be required to write breaking news as assigned for the website and for the print product. Interns will also write enterprise/in-depth features for our popular Focus sections, which are included in the paper. A basic level of familiarity with AP style; story organization and reporting ability is required for our interns. Interns are encouraged to come up with their own story ideas as well to pitch to the internship coordinator (Josh Coddington) and managing editor (Tom Spratt) throughout their time here. It is not required, but typically makes for better stories. Interns are also encouraged, but not required, to take photos for stories on which they report. Equipment will be provided. Other stories/assignments as assigned. Scheduling/Time: Interns are expected to devise a set schedule and stick to that schedule as much as possible. Interns must communicate effectively with the internship coordinator at the Capitol Times. Interns are welcome to take time away from their duties here as needed, provided the intern informs the internship coordinator beforehand.
