Internship Program, Summer 2018 The candidate will work with the ThinkProgress Internship. Interns work with an editor to craft and hone pitches, in addition to doing extensive research, writing, fact-checking, monitoring daily news, and completing other tasks as assigned.

ThinkProgress looks for interns with strong research and writing skills. Other duties may include conducting targeted research and reporting on policy meetings, seminars, hearings, and lectures. Whenever possible, interns are encouraged to write on the subject of their choice either as a contributor to a larger final piece or as an individual author of a column for the website. Law students are considered. Note: Interns must work full time and 8+ weeks, although 10 weeks is preferred. Duration: June to August
