Current University of Oklahoma Gaylord College of Journalism and Mass Communication students are eligible for a paid editorial internship with NonDoc to span the 2019-2020 academic year.
Applications for the position are due Tuesday, Sept. 3, and should be submitted to firstname.lastname@example.org. Applications must include a resumé, cover letter and two samples of work.
The selected student will receive payment and experience as a professional journalist between September 2019 and May 2020. The internship will focus on reporting, editing, digital content management, social media and other elements of the digital media industry.
The selected intern will produce content for publication on a weekly basis, work on longer projects and be involved in content-marketing efforts intended to target potential readership populations.
Gaylord College students succeed after internships
Former NonDoc interns have found success transitioning into professional positions.
“I loved being an intern for NonDoc because it allowed me to work remotely and at my own pace, all while learning new skills. It was fun work, too!” said Carleigh Foutch, a 2016-2017 intern who focused on social media, marketing and content production. “Being able to research and go through trial and error runs on various social media platforms was enjoyable. I never once felt as if it were ‘work,’ but I still felt like I learned a lot at the end of the internship.”
Two recent Gaylord College interns have completed their internships and stayed on staff with NonDoc as paid, part-time employees.
“NonDoc is the real deal. The publication is small enough where you’ll be diving into real stories and professional enough so nothing but high-quality work will suffice,” said Ben White. “An internship with NonDoc is more real than many other internships, yet the staff around you will be there to support you every step of the way. I learned so much in my time with NonDoc, and it was meaningful because I worked on stories that mattered. I highly encourage anyone interested in a journalism or media career to apply.”
Archiebald Browne served as NonDoc’s 2019 summer intern in partnership with the Gaylord College, and he will be remaining on staff for the balance of the year in a paid position.
“Interning for NonDoc not only made me a better writer, but it also gave me the opportunity to branch out and meet people with amazing stories to tell,” Browne said. “I got the chance to visit communities with untold histories that I will admire forever. Because of that, my NonDoc internship created an unforgettable summer for me.”
This 2019-2020 academic year internship is made possible thanks to a partnership with the Gaylord College and its commitment to ensuring students receive hands-on experience in conjunction with their classroom studies.
