The Times Union is Now Hiring Paid Interns for Summer 2023

The Times Union is now hiring interns for summer 2023. If you have questions, please contact editor in chief Casey Seiler at

The Times Union is the leading news organization in New York’s Capital Region and is widely respected for its focus on local news and watchdog reporting, particularly on state government and politics. They’ve won numerous state and national awards for their work and in 2022 were named a Newspaper of Distinction by the Journalists Association of New York. 

Interns are paid and treated as regular newsroom staff members, learning on the job and helping to produce the Capital Region’s best news coverage.

The internship lasts eight weeks; specific start and end dates are somewhat flexible. They offer internships in reporting — news, sports, business and/or features — and audience engagement. Interns will be assigned an editor, will participate in team meetings and may join training sessions on topical subjects. When applying, please note which position you’re interested in.

Interns are expected to be located in the Capital Region or Hudson Valley for the duration of the internship and must be able to drive to assignments. They reimburse mileage. The newsroom works in a hybrid environment, so staff can either work from home or in the office space.

Interns must be enrolled in a degree-granting program at an accredited college or university, or have graduated within the past year, at time of application.

Preferred qualifications:

  • Students enrolled in a journalism concentration.
  • Experience working at a college publication, either print or online.
  • A previous internship or freelance experience at a daily newspaper or professional news website.

The application deadline for the summer 2023 internship is Feb. 10. Applicants will be notified of the internship committee’s decision by no later than Feb. 24.

Interns are paid $15 an hour and will work 37.5 hours a week. The internship is eight weeks; start and end dates can be flexible. Interns must be based in the Capital Region or Hudson Valley or be able to move to the region for the internship. Interns cannot freelance or work at other publications during the internship unless approved by a supervisor.

To apply, submit a cover letter, resume and three references through our form.

Reporting candidates should include links to or PDF copies of five published work samples. Audience candidates also may attach work samples. Please include any good work you’ve done — even if it doesn’t fit the “traditional” mold.

When writing your cover letter, think about: 

  • Why you wish to intern for the Times Union.
  • What you are interested in doing during your internship.
  • Your goals and expectations for the internship.
  • What makes you the best candidate.
  • The dates you are available.

Selection will be based on portfolio, experience (college and professional), cover letter and references. Finalists will be interviewed.

The Times Union is committed to growing and retaining a more diverse workforce that better reflects the communities we serve. We strongly encourage all people of working age who are traditionally underrepresented in the media to apply, including women, people of color, applicants with disabilities, those from the LGBTQ+ community and veterans.

Apply now.
