Tampa Bay Times internships

We tell stories. On Twitter. Instagram. Through video. Still photos. Times Digital and, of course, with our print products. The way we share our stories has evolved since the Tampa Bay Times was founded more than 135 years ago. But our commitment to investigative reporting, government accountability, breaking news and covering the issues that matter to our readers remains unchanged. Join us. We are Florida’s Best Newspaper.

The Times offers internships in all of its departments. The internships range from 10-week summer experiences to six-month and yearlong fellowships. Our interns gain hands-on experience, working alongside staffers who offer guidance and respect them as equals. Interns are paid a weekly salary.


Sophomores, juniors, seniors and graduate students pursuing careers in media are encouraged to apply. Experience at a college publication is a plus, and applicants should have at least one professional internship. Interns also will need their own reliable transportation and a working laptop.


For newsroom internships, the deadline is Nov. 1. 

For non-newsroom (marketing, advertising, etc.) positions, the deadline is Feb. 15. Our internships are competitive so you would be smart to apply well before the deadline.
