The Huffington Post has a summer opening for a reporting/editorial intern in New York for the Impact vertical, which focuses on reporting and taking action on issues that affect people struggling in America and worldwide. The vertical focuses on social change and crucial domestic issues including homelessness, poverty and other disadvantaged groups.

Interns will be asked to do extensive researching, writing, editing, fact-checking, monitoring of news stories, and other tasks as assigned. For those with a strong interest in reporting and writing about these issues, this internship is a great opportunity to work with and be published on a major mainstream news site.

Ideally, interns should have previous journalism experience as well as an active interest in social change and humanitarian news. Applicants should be familiar with AP style and have strong writing, editing, interviewing and research skills. They should also be familiar with social media sites, including Twitter and Facebook. Some experience with Web production applications is preferred.

This is a paid internship at approximately 20-25 hours/week.
