    The Quincy Herald-Whig is now accepting applications to its new paid internship program in Quincy, Illinois. Our award-winning newsroom is searching for interns who have the skills and desire to work as photographers, news reporters and sports reporters.

    The purpose behind the Quinternship Paid Internship Program is to offer students in the field of journalism, broadcasting, communication and related fields the opportunity to gain hands-on experience in broadcast television, radio, print and digital information. Students who participate (Interns) will gain a wide variety of practical experience and will receive an hourly wage. The company strives to offer this opportunity to a diverse group of Interns.

    Interns who participate in the program will work a mutually agreeable flex schedule set by the Quincy Herald-Whig, while attending school. In many cases, the Intern can earn college or university credits and fulfill graduation prerequisites, if agreed to by their institutions of higher learning.

    Internships usually run concurrently with the Intern’s academic semester; but can and may include opportunities during holiday breaks and summer recesses. The Internship will give the Interns opportunities to secure real world media experience, get acquainted with the Employer and its operation, and learn about work expectations and journalistic responsibilities. Interns must be at least 18 years of age, have a valid driver’s license and be insurable under Employer’s automobile liability insurance coverage, and maintain good standing with their sponsoring university and/or college.

    Interns will be assigned an advisor/mentor who the Intern will work with, rely on and communicate with their advisor/mentor during their Internship.

    Very nice place to work with a smart, dedicated sports staff. Very good place for an intern.

    I will second the endorsement of the Herald-Whig as a quality, small-city paper.

    Oh, and you'd better like basketball ... :)

    I'm not doubting the quality of the paper - so don't take it as such - but given that every paper has a disparaging nickname given to it by the locals, I'm curious what the Herald-Whig's is. And how awesome is it that a paper has been around long enough to be named after a political party that disappeared 150 years ago.

    Does the paper still support the Whig party candidates?

    Full-time PAID? Jump at this opportunity if in the region. You'll work with a top-notch sports staff, and I'm certain there is TV and radio work involved.
