Thanks for your interest in RedEye. Here are the opportunities we have available. Because of the high volume of inquiries we receive about job/freelance/internship opportunities, we can only respond to finalists.
RedEye seeks freelance reporters to cover Chicago news and trends. The ideal candidates will have reporting experience. They'll be able to pitch timely and talkable local stories and be able to write in a way that appeals to RedEye's audience of super social, passionate people in their 20s and 30s.
Think you have what it takes? If interested, send resume, clips of/links to three published stories and two pitches for story ideas to web editor Brian Moore, email@example.com.
Our paid internship program seeks college students or recent graduates who want to contribute to RedEye's unique mission to inform, entertain and engage diverse Chicagoans in their 20s and 30s and have some fun while we're at it. Internships are available in web reporting and video producing.
As this is a practical internship, experience at a school newspaper or a previous newspaper or magazine internship is preferred and some journalism training in a class or otherwise is required. RedEye interns are expected to have flexible skills, including basic knowledge of AP style and news writing. Online, social media and video editing experience is preferred.
The majority of RedEye interns work a 24-hour week, but we will work with students who have minor class and work conflicts.
The internship lasts about 12 weeks. A cover letter, resume, 3-4 clips and the names of at least three references should be sent to: (firstname.lastname@example.org)
We prefer to receive applications electronically, but you may also send them using RedEye's mailing address:435 N. Michigan Ave., 4th Floor, Chicago IL 60611
