MANILA, Philippines – Do you want to experience what it’s like to work at Rappler? If you have what it takes, then you just might be what we’re looking for.
Rappler is looking for hardworking, committed, and talented student interns and volunteers who don’t mind getting their hands dirty and their feet wet. Many previous interns and volunteers eventually got to work with us or were hired by other companies.
We are accepting applications for the Rappler internship and volunteer program until Wednesday, February 28.
For this cycle, we will be accepting students who need to go through an internship as part of their academic requirements.
We will also be considering applicants from interested volunteers – students who are not doing this as part of an academic requirement but who want to be trained by Rappler. Interns and volunteers must be willing to work within the internship period of March to May 2024 through a hybrid work setup.
Not your ordinary desk job
Since Rappler formally opened its internship program in 2011, the company has been a training ground for more than 500 students coming from various universities and diverse fields.
Rappler interns and volunteers are expected to be plucked out of their comfort zones to get a taste of how things work in the real world, and to learn from a thriving newsroom. We put a premium on individuals who are able to work smart and independently, but are willing to receive guidance and mentorship along the way.
The internship and volunteer program is anchored on the belief that the best way to hone the craft of storytelling, journalism, marketing, or any skill is through firsthand experience.
