CalMatters is committed to training the next generation of journalists, and our interns will be guided by seasoned staffers to make meaningful contributions during their stay.

Our internships run 10-12 weeks, and interns are placed throughout our organization. Some of the opportunities we offer focus on reporting, photography, videography, web development and audience engagement. We also have interns working with our development team on fundraising, prospect research, and newsletter and website advertising.

Our interns are paid $20/hour. Most work in Sacramento, but remote work is an option for some of the positions. We’re committed to reflecting the people of the state we serve and especially encourage members of underrepresented communities to apply.

The application period for our Summer 2022 positions has closed; some positions have been filled and we’re reviewing applicants for the remaining ones. Future positions will be posted as soon as we know when they’ll be available.
