We’re looking for summer interns!

We’re currently looking for Addicted to Race summer interns! Read below for more info, we encourage you to apply!

Internship Overview:
The Addicted to Race Summer Intern will be responsible for assisting the co-hosts by preparing information for segments of upcoming episodes. This position will have a strong emphasis on research, writing, and idea development. Each intern will be assigned a specific area to work on and will be given the opportunity (and creative license!) to produce a segment of his or her very own at the close of the internship. This is a great way to get experience with podcasting and to learn more about issues surrounding our country’s relationship to race today. The position will require 15-20 hours per week (this includes regular communication with Jen and Carmen, including a weekly meeting conducted via conference call).

Qualifications:

  • Passionate interest in issues surrounding race, ethnicity, culture and identity.
  • Commitment to creating awareness and promoting discussion around these issues.
  • Belief that race is a social construct. Will fight anyone who says otherwise.
  • Excellent written and oral communication skills, and high comfort level in communicating and presenting to diverse audiences.
  • Experience with research and/or experience with issues of diversity a bonus.
  • Summer Interns can be located anywhere geographically. Interns should be extremely organized and motivated as they will work from home and for the most part, they will need to manage their own time.
  • Stipend:
    Jen and Carmen’s undying gratitude. We will be your friends forever.
