2017 Summer Internships, San Antonio, Texas

College juniors, seniors and graduate students are encouraged to apply for paid summer internships at the San Antonio Express-News. Up to eight candidates will be selected for the 10-week program. Based in the main newsroom in San Antonio, the program targets students interested in pursuing careers as reporters, photographers, multimedia producers and data visualization specialists. 
Interns are treated as full-time staffers. They end each summer having earned valuable real-world experience in a thriving daily news environment. Each intern is assigned a mentor, and regular brownbag lunches are held with senior writers and editors to discuss a variety of topics about journalism and post-graduate career success.
As the seventh largest city in the country, San Antonio is at the center of many major national and international narratives, such as immigration, energy, cybersecurity and military affairs. There's never a lack of news or interesting stories to chase — and we encourage our interns to chase them.

* Reporter candidates must specifiy to which department they are applying: Metro, Features, Business or Sports. Candidates must include links or PDFs of no more than seven stories that best demonstrate an ability to cover breaking news and enterprise. Please include links to any interactive maps, databases or charts used to augment reporting.
* Data visualization candidates must include links to no more than 10 interactive databases, charts or maps. Candidates who have learned or used Tableau, in addition to other digital tools such as TimelineJS, StoryMapJS and Storify, are preferred.
