Fall 2017 Editorial Internship

Care about the facts? So do we. Since 2007, POLITICO has been committed to non-partisan journalism. We create products and deliver content of consequence; they have the power to change the course of history by making democracy better through our coverage of politics, policy, and power. As long as those intersect, there will be a need for POLITICO and our stories. That's where you come in.

POLITICO seeks exceptional college students/recent graduates for its editorial internship program. We hire year-round for positions on our magazine, our breaking news desk, our politics desk and our Politico Pro policy teams. We're seeking enterprising and creative journalists who want to report, write and research for an audience of political and policy junkies.

See below for date ranges and application deadlines:

Internship: January-May

Applications due: October 1

What You'll Need:

  • previous newsroom experience,
  • work well under pressure and
  • have an avid interest in Washington.

We welcome applicants who are recent graduates. Applicants who are still in school must, at least, be rising juniors. The internship is full-time and based in POLITICO's Rosslyn, Virginia, headquarters.

Come help us build the story. We check our comfort zones at the door each day to foster innovation, and because we believe in each other's ambitions, we come together to create something meaningful.

We value our people. We offer a competitive compensation and comprehensive benefits package, including health and wellness benefits, commuter benefits, retirement plans, as well as work-life balance flexibility and opportunities for career development.

Let's keep in touch. Follow us on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter at @politicocareers and #meetPOLITICO for a deep dive into what makes us POLITICOs and our adventures. We'd love to hear from you!
