Summer Internship Recruitment
Multimedia agency offers training and employment
Little Rock, Arkansas (February 6, 2024) - Since the digital takeover, most journalism training has concentrated on multimedia inclusion, analytics, search engine optimization (SEO), and other ways to attract readers and viewers. But, what about writing a story or producing a competent package? As newsrooms change, the mission -- to do good work -- stays the same.
To understand what’s needed in the evolving information age, apply to be an intern with UrbanMediaGroup (UMG)!
UMG will hire aspiring content creators, 16 - 21 (high school/college students) that will live in Little Rock this summer from Monday, June 17 -Thursday, July 25, 2024. Those interested in developing the critical skills necessary to be successful journalists can earn $13.00 guaranteed by the city of Little Rock and bonuses from UrbanMediaGroup. In addition, participants will earn or acquire employable skills and strengthen their work ethic toward becoming top-flight journalists.
These achievements will all be accomplished by being immersed in an intense six (6) week of the hands-on application course of study where you will be introduced to:
Writing balanced articles with the increasing demand to tell stories through different forms – visuals, social media, and of course the website.
Meeting deadlines after live-tweeting or streaming a meeting and shooting photos.
Recording information to get the best results from devices ranging from camera phones to cinematic cameras; and
Learning techniques to complete MMJ jobs as a reporter, photographer, and editor!
Supervisors will be assigned to advise and assist with work assignments during intense workshops and on-the-job training for six (6) weeks. Work hours are flexible depending on assignments.
Interns will complete 20 hours of job readiness training prior to job placement.
APPLICATIONS WILL BE ACCEPTED CONTINUOUSLY FOR THIS POSITION UNTIL 11:59 PM SATURDAY, MARCH 23, 2024.
If you are interested in working for a progressive company that is guided by a culture of core values that guide its business decisions and defines how it interacts with everyone, including each other, consider applying for one of our available positions.
