AP brings back internship program for 2012

Printer-friendly version

The Associated Press announced Thursday, Feb. 2, that it will reinstate its internship programs this summer after a year’s hiatus.

The AP business, news and technology internship programs will resume in June and last 12 weeks, according to Jessica Bruce, vice president for human resources. The programs will offer a total of 38 internships, each lasting 12 weeks.

"AP has always been committed to continuing its longstanding internship programs," said Bruce. "The business, news and technology internships are important to AP and to the industry in helping develop future journalists and business and technology acumen in others who can have a long-term positive impact in news and media organizations."

The programs were put on a one-year hold last year as AP reviewed them to make sure they were as economically efficient and effective as possible. Details about how to apply and related information will be posted later this month on AP’s corporate site at http://www.ap.org
