Here are just a few example roles our journalism interns have taken on before:


  1. Social Media Content

    Creating content for social media is often a key task during internships in journalism in Spain, no matter the type of outlet an intern is placed with. News outlets, podcasts, and magazines alike all rely heavily on social media to engage audiences, and to share shortened versions of top stories. Social media management skills are useful in just about every industry there is and are particularly valuable in the media world.

  2. Event Coverage

    Journalism interns often have the chance to cover local events during their placements. Attending and writing about virtual or in-person events is an exciting opportunity to learn about how professional journalists do their jobs daily. Interns may shadow an industry expert or attend events alone, working with editors to prepare coverage for their respective publications.

  3. Source Management

    Identifying credible and relevant sources is something most journalists work on every day. Interns may help find experts for particular stories and projects, conduct their own interviews, and track source use across stories in a newsroom or an organization. These roles are an excellent opportunity to network and build valuable connections.

  4. Research

    Research skills are important in a wide variety of industries, and are key in the journalism world. The ability to locate and evaluate information is incredibly valuable for content creators of all kinds, and research interns often have the chance to contribute to several interesting and impactful projects.

The Journalism Industry

The journalism industry is changing constantly and is also growing. News analysts, reporters, and journalists are still in high demand, as people consume more content now than ever before. Of course, as the industry grows, so does the competition, for jobs and readers. For that reason, prior experience and key skills in areas like data and research are just as important as attributes like curiosity and attention to detail. Journalism internships in Spain are a great opportunity to begin building a portfolio of work and hone skills in areas like interviewing, fact-checking, and search engine optimization. They’re also a unique chance to learn about networking in the journalism world, liaise with top journalists and content creators, and seek mentorship.
