Planetizen is Seeking Summer Interns for 2011

Planetizen is Seeking Summer Interns for 2011


The internship involves a four-step training process over 12 weeks, giving you the opportunity to learn and gain valuable experience:

1. Training. You'll get a thorough training in the latest trends in urbanism and development, as well as a primer in online journalism.
2. Aggregation. You'll become part of the Planetizen news team, gathering news stories from around the globe dealing with the built environment.
3. Editorial. You'll research and report on a current issue from beginning to end, using our network of experts and connections to develop a rich feature story.
4. Research project/ Crowdsourcing. You'll develop your data gathering and surveying skills working on a crowdsourcing project gathering ideas from Planetizen's professional audience.


You must be applying for school credit to intern with us, or give another compelling reason for your participation. Excellent writing skills and reading comprehension are also a prerequisite. Residence in the Los Angeles area is also required: we will not be offering long-distance internships at this time.
