LONG ISLAND BUSINESS NEWS INTERNS

Long Island Business News has openings for fall interns. LIBN is located a mile south of the LI Expressway at Exit 60, so it’s quite convenient to campus by car. Before you say “I’m not interested in business,” stop and think how important an understanding of business is not only for reporters but for all members of society. A business-reporting internship can set you apart in the job market.
Also, at least two SBU interns at LIBN were offered jobs there after graduation.
If you are interested, let me know.

We’re looking to host two interns this semester – one from SBU, one from Hofstra. One of the interns will work here Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 10 to 3; the other will work the same hours on Tuesday, Thursday and Friday. Basically, the first school that sends me a strong candidate gets its schedule choice.
 

We’ve found it’s more helpful to us – and the student – to have someone here more days at fewer hours (three days at five hours, rather than two days at eight hours). This gives our reporters and editors more opportunities to work with the students one-on-one, and also allows the students to better absorb the flow of a weekly publication.

 

If you’d prefer two longer days, I’m sure we could work that out.
