Explore remote writing internships
The media field is immensely broad, and interns develop skills and connections that lead to careers in public relations, marketing, publishing, journalism, and more! From learning how to conduct interviews and pitch ideas, to SEO and multimedia knowledge, interns develop skills and clips that make them competitive candidates in any field.
Interns are placed with competitive organizations around the world, ranging from digital content agencies and magazines to online news outlets. The portfolios remote writing interns compile are one of the most valuable elements of the experience. These portfolios showcase high-quality, published work, and allow interns to stand out as competitive applicants.
In addition to writing and editing skills, remote writing interns also develop strong time management, self-motivation, and communication skills. As the media industries become increasingly digital, the ability to work with editors and teams virtually becomes ever more valuable.
A key element of any professional experience is the chance to forge relationships with top industry professionals. In a virtual placement, interns take on increased independence and ownership of their roles. They also form strong relationships with their editors, teammates, and mentors in the field. These connections propel them forward into successful careers, both in the media world and outside it.

“I had a really good experience with my internship and I was lucky enough for that to turn into a full time role quite quickly. Straight away they got me to write stories, go to events and get stuck in from day one which I was quite surprised and really stoked about, of course.“Miriam Harris Auckland University of Technology
