Job Title: Production Intern
Organization: Out There Podcast
Type of opportunity: The internship is an excellent opportunity to work one-on-one with an award-winning podcast team, and develop your audio production, editorial and/or social media skills.
Duties: Here are some things your internship could focus on (please indicate in your cover letter which of these interest you most)
Audio production — cutting tape, editing interviews, doing sound design/mixing for stories (this would require basic knowledge of audio editing software, such as Adobe Audition, though we will work with you to hone your skills)
Editorial — evaluating story pitches, pre-interviewing guests, booking interviews, editing scripts
Social media — help us grow our social media following and improve our social media content (we’re very open to new ideas!)
Suggest your own focus — if there’s something you could bring to the table that’s not listed above, we’re all ears.
Start and end dates: The internship lasts for one semester. We ask that you be ready to devote an average of 8 hours per week to it.
Salary/pay: It’s unpaid, but you’ll have weekly meetings with Out There Host Willow Belden (if you’re working remotely, these meetings will be via phone or video chat), and you’ll get to put your mark on the show’s stories and social media.
Think of it as a mentorship, where you’ll learn what’s entailed in running a professional media operation, and gain fluency in skills you want to develop.
You’re also welcome to pitch us a story of your own; if it’s a good fit, we’ll work with you to develop it.
How to apply: Send a resume and cover letter to firstname.lastname@example.org with “Internship Application” in the subject line.
Please make sure to highlight relevant experience/skills, as well as the areas you’d most like to focus on (eg. audio production, editorial, etc.). If you’ve done previous audio work, please provide a link to a story that showcases your skills.
Application deadline: Dec. 1, 2019
