Rappler opens internship program to college students

As part of efforts to work with and nurture journalistic skills of the youth, Rappler is offering its internship program to collegiate students. We believe that learning and skills can be acquired beyond the classroom and through actual experience and exposure to real-life situations.

Our internship program is open to all college students in their junior to senior years. They are required to complete from 150-200 hours of work over 6 weeks. A select number of interns will be chosen every year over a rotating cycle.
