As one of the world’s news leaders we are interested in creative and energetic people with diverse perspectives and talents. Our global team creates content consumed by millions of people every day, and with tectonic changes in the world, news and impactful storytelling are more important now than ever. A successful CNN intern is committed to quality journalism, has strong knowledge of international issues, a keen interest in the digital media landscape, and a sharp eye for the stories that spark conversation on a daily basis.

The internships are designed for journalism graduates or candidates from a related field seeking a career in journalism.
CNN advocates for diversity and welcomes candidates from all backgrounds, ethnicities, abilities and genders, and we are committed to creating both a workforce and content that are as diverse as the global audiences we serve.
Primary responsibilities include research, fact-checking, transcribing footage, assisting on shoots, contributing story and show ideas, attending planning and creative meetings and sourcing images and footage.
Candidates should be detail-orientated, have strong writing and research skills, the ability to multitask in a fast-paced environment, and have the confidence to pitch story ideas and potential guests to show producers.
The Newsdesk role demands the ability to multitask and create high-quality content for both digital and broadcast.

The ability to discover current breaking news stories, write succinctly and accurately, and deliver to deadline is key. Daily tasks include monitoring press conferences and live events, reaching out to press offices for statements and sourcing video/ images. The Newsdesk also makes sure production teams and reporters know about their upcoming live appearances and liaises with the show producers to ensure these run smoothly. The ideal candidate will possess a fine attention to detail and should be confident to work in a fast-paced, high energy environment – and they should prepare to hit the ground running.
Interns will help with researching and planning stories, as well as writing for the shows. The ideal candidate will have excellent organisational skills, good logistical sense and attention to detail.
