A little bit about New America Media (NAM):
New America Media is the country's first and largest national collaboration and advocate of ethnic media. Over 51 million ethnic adults connect to each other, to home countries and to America through 3000+ ethnic media, the fastest growing sector of American journalism.

Founded by the nonprofit Pacific News Service in 1996, NAM is headquartered in California with offices in New York. Want to know more? Check out the About Us page for more information.

What will you do while you're interning at NAM?
If you're an editorial intern: You will work closely with a beat editor who will help steer you towards assignments that interest you, but also assign you stories that NAM needs to cover. There will also be opportunities to work with both audio and video elements of journalism. You will also be responsible for monitoring where your story is picked up in ethnic media.While working with your editor/mentor, you will get an idea about how an ethnic news organization covers stories that don't get press in mainstream media as well as how an editorial team works.

If you're a marketing intern: You will work closely with the marketing team on either one larger project or several smaller ones. NAM does multiple marketing campaigns at one time, so you will learn how to manage your time and juggle responsibilities. You will also learn how to communicate with clients as well as with the ethnic media we are trying to reach out to.

All intern responsibilities:
In addition to your responsibilities as a marketing or editorial intern, you will be required to add/update Ethnic Media information. In a time when publications and newspapers are constantly evolving, NAM works hard to keep up with all of those changes.

You will also be required to attend a mandatory orientation meeting where we will give a tour of the office, the different parts of NAM and discuss what you hope to accomplish over the next 10 weeks.

To apply for an internship at NAM, please send an email to Dana Levine (dlevine@newamericamedia.org). Clearly state which internship session you are applying for and why you want to work with New America Media. Please attach your resume in either a .pdf or .doc format.
