News Internships

We’ll help you identify internships locally —and in the industry’s top markets — that can jump-start your career while you’re still a student.

Drake News students have found internships with The Des Moines Register, the Kansas City Star and the Philadelphia Inquirer; ESPN; the Associated Press; KCCI-TV, WHO-TV and WOI-TV; St. Louis PBS and Iowa and Minnesota NPR affiliates; the World Food Prize; Meredith Corporation; ABC News; the Iowa Natural Heritage Foundation; the Iowa Department of Human Rights, and more.

With our own internship coordinator, we’ll help you find the right job.
