Job: Planet Money Intern-Fall 2018
Location: New York, NY
Fall 2018: September 10th – December 14th
Do you ever wonder about the future of work? Or trade deals? Or ask why a $60,000 handbag is always out of stock? Or what frozen chicken has to do with the price of pickup trucks?
Are you a regular Planet Money listener and fan? Are ready to hit the phones in search of the perfect character? To read the footnotes of CRS reports? To record the sound of a self-checkout machine over and over until you get it just right? To be proud of your weird interests and follow them as far as you can? To pitch story, after story, after story? To transcribe some tape? To write copy for npr.org and our social media accounts?
We’re a team of deeply curious economics and business reporters, and we love telling stories. We work out of NPR’s office in New York City (no Tiny Desk concerts here, sorry). We make two podcasts a week, and plenty of radio stories. Even though we’ve been around for awhile, we like to keep our show scrappy: To try new, ambitious things, all to help people understand their daily lives and the world.
We’d love to have you along for the journey, even if it’s just for a few months – we love to teach, and we’re looking for someone who’s eager to learn.
If this sounds like something you can throw yourself into for a semester, please apply! We’ll be in touch.
