Internships in Journalism in Madrid
Here are just a few example roles our journalism interns have taken on before:
Today’s journalistic outlets use a diverse array of platforms and formats to reach their audiences. Blogs and newsletters are a particularly effective way of reaching consumers, particularly those who read content on their smartphones. Interns may draft short blog posts about news and special topics, and learn to write for SEO, to increase readership.
Social media management is an important part of many internships in journalism in Madrid. The intersection of news, culture, and social media is an important one for the media world today, and interns may gain experience pitching content for various platforms and curating posts, transforming full-length stories into digestible social content.

From short videos and photo galleries to podcasts and more, internships are an excellent opportunity to begin building a multimedia portfolio.

The journalism industry has changed drastically in the last decade and continues to evolve rapidly. It’s a very fast-paced field in which being first is always prized, as is accuracy, timeliness, and readership. As a journalist, there’s nothing more important than curiosity and attention to detail. Of course, when it comes to landing a job or placing a story, it’s your portfolio that matters more than anything else. Journalism internships in Madrid are the perfect opportunity to begin building that portfolio, including both written and multimedia samples. As the media field continues to change, becoming increasingly digital, and in some cases, controversial, there are still endless opportunities for those who can identify a good story. From magazines and digital outlets to podcasting companies, film studios, and more, getting a foot in the door is the first step towards a successful career.
