The Washington Examiner is looking for interns -- young, aspiring journalists with excellent writing skills, a developing sense of "what's news," and a willingness to learn meticulous research techniques.

 Our interns don't get coffee for the staff. They contribute significantly to the life of our paper, producing daily features and conducting research on the top stories of the day.

Young journalists who wish to intern with the Washington Examiner Commentary and Opinion staff should contact one of the following groups or email us directly at: dcxopeds(at)


The National Journalism Center 

NJC was founded by syndicated columnist and author M. Stanton Evans. Thirty-three years later, hundreds of NJC alumni work at dozens of media outlets, including major television networks, newspapers, magazines and wire services.

NJC’s 12-week internships include hands-on experience at more than four dozen media outlets, including The Washington Examiner, as well as writing workshops, seminars on the inner workings of Congress, and a speakers program.


Collegiate Network

CN offers paid summer internships and postgraduate fellowships to up-and-coming student journalists. The year-long fellowships come with stipends up to $30,000.

CN also holds a weeklong seminar that includes briefings by professional journalists and invitation-only “salons” that provide interns with informal networking opportunities.


Washington Journalism Center

Boston University’s WJC provides semester-long internships for students interested in political reporting at major newspapers, radio and television stations – or BU’s own Washington News Service, which produces news for its New England clients.
