The Daily Progress, the news of record for Charlottesville and Central Virginia since 1892, is seeking student journalists to take part in a 10-week, paid summer internship.

Applications are open to those interested in a variety of newsroom careers: reporters, editors, photographers, videographers and more. All successful candidates, however, will be hardworking, innovative and deadline-driven.

Progress interns work alongside professional journalists who provide guidance, direction and support over the course of the 10-week program.

Flexibility is an asset, as interns will be expected to juggle multiple tasks and perform some night and weekend work.

At least one prior internship in a professional newsroom or comparable work at a college news outlet is preferred, but not necessary.

Interns should have their own transportation for assignments.

Exceptional interns will be considered for employment.

Apply with a resume and work samples at lee.net/careers.
