Talking Points Memo

TPM interns are vital to our operation and have a hand in everything we do. They work alongside our reporters to write and break stories, help our editors keep a finger on the pulse of the news day, and produce all kinds of digital media from YouTube clips to mash-up photographs. Some of our interns have gone on to jobs here at TPM, others have moved on to jobs in new and old media alike, working for Think Progress, The Wall Street Journal, Huffington Post, The New York Sun, The Washington Post and more.

To learn more about what we do at TPM and what we've accomplished in the last year, see these news reports on TPM from 2007.

Because each intern is encouraged to work in multiple parts of our operation, it's important that applicants have a basic understanding of new media technologies (blogging, youtube, etc.) and a desire and ability to learn quickly. We are also looking for one intern who is video specific. This person should have a working knowledge of Final Cut, and be ready and excited to dive into the world of TPMtv. All internships are unpaid and based in TPM's New York City office.

To apply for any of our internships, send an email ( TPM Video Internship or TPM Internship ) with a cover letter, resume and two references. If you're interested in video, please specify that in your cover letter.
