Are you interested in historical research and writing for a nationally-known website devoted to the promotion of history? If so, you may want to consider applying for an internship at the History News Network. Senior history major Christine Kelly interned at HNN a couple of years ago. Read about her experience here. The great thing about working for HNN is that you can do it from the comfort of your home, dorm room, or Murray Library. Here is the call for interns:
You have been accepted as an intern at HNN.” These words open students to a new world of exciting opportunities. The History News Network is the only website on the Internet wholly devoted to the task of putting events in the news into historical perspective every day. Students accepted into our program have the chance to find out why events happen and who can be trusted to explain them.
Here are the basic facts: Internships are for a minimum term of 2 quarters. Six hours a week minimum. You work from home or the library–anyplace where you have access to a computer. YOU DO NOT HAVE TO WORK FROM HNN’S OFFICE. Interns communicate with the editor through email. If you have access to email and the Internet you can participate in our internship program. Our internships are unpaid. Class credit can often be arranged.
