Internship and Other Opportunities at The International

I am contacting you on behalf of The International, a news website that features articles from a variety of sources on issues of public interest:

We are currently looking for reporters at the University of Michigan - Ann Arbor. We provide our interns with all the training on how to write for the online environment while maintaining high journalistic standards, a skill that proves invaluable for anyone who may want to break into journalism or write a blog in the future.
