TICO TIMES INTERNSHIP – Costa Rica
Summer Internship (May through August) – Jan. 20
Fall Internship (September through December) – May 20
The Tico Times offers four-month writing and photography internships journalists and photographers. Interns have the opportunity to learn the ropes in a newsroom, put their skills to practical application and live in a foreign country.
The writing internship is a full-time, working position. This intern writes feature stories and news stories each week.
Spanish fluency is a firm requirement for both the writing and photography internships, as most interviews and research must be conducted in Spanish.
Because the writing intern primarily works for the “Weekend” section (the features section), he or she will have the opportunity to travel throughout the country writing travel stories and hotel reviews. However, most of the intern's time will be spent in the Central Valley area.
The photo intern works for the features section and the news section, and will be able to take advantage of travel opportunities with the writing intern; the pair will work together on many assignments. The photo intern should have his or her own digital camera.
Both internships pay a stipend of $200 per month.
