MANILA, Philippines – Do you want to experience what it's like to work at Rappler? If you've got the guts and the commitment to go the extra mile, then you just might be what we're looking for.

Rappler is looking for hardworking, committed and talented interns who don't mind getting their hands dirty and their feet wet.

Interns must be willing to work within the internship period of September 1 to November 30, 2016 at the Rappler Office in Pasig City, Philippines.

Preference will be given to applicants who can intern full-time; are graduating students; and require an internship for graduation.

Not your ordinary desk job

Since Rappler formally opened its internship program in 2011, the company has been a training ground for more than a hundred students coming from various universities and diverse fields.

Fair warning: A Rappler intern has to be prepared for battle.

Interns are not expected to do menial tasks like getting coffee or photocopying documents. Instead, they will be plucked out of their comfort zones to get a taste of how things work in the real world.

Rappler’s internship program is anchored in the belief that the best way to hone the craft of story-telling, journalism, marketing or any skill is through first-hand experience. They will be given the chance to maximize the lessons they learned in the classroom by applying them to real life situations.

We put a premium on interns who are able to work smart and independently, but are willing to receive guidance and mentorship along the way.
