We are truly honored you are considering us for your internship. We take journalism seriously and believe deeply in our duties and responsibilities. Continue reading below to learn our promises and commitment to helping you become the most valuable journalist you can become.
We understand that you have goals and dreams for yourself and we want to help you achieve them. Hopefully with us but we understand if you want to take your creativity and craft somewhere else. Friendly contacts make life easier for everyone and at the least we hope to be a great resource for you.
That said, here is a list of promises made up front:
You will have fun and find joy in your work! That is expected or we will quit too!
You will be assigned to assist a professional journalist upon acceptance in MN1 Intern program. That Journalist will be your jungle guide. They are not expecting coffee, just producing copy on deadline. Your jungle guide will be the most valuable tool in your internship and your most frequent point of contact. If you have problem with your jungle guide, please contact your nearest supervisor and they will solve it. You are actually helping your jungle guide with real world news articles and videos so be cognizant of time. Time is always o the essence in this business. On that note: Stop reading this page and get to work! Don't know what to do? Call your jungle guide.
Finally, and here is your first lesson: Never rely on a single means of contact. Use every means available to reach your jungle guide, a story lead, a source, etc. Call, text, email, social media, knock on door, smoke signals and even call people who know them. If you want to reach someone, then you will.
Welcome to being unstoppable.
