The San Antonio Current is looking for interns to join our editorial team to assist with writing, editing and digital projects for our food and nightlife sections. As an intern at the Current, there's no getting coffee, filing or making copies.

Our interns spend their time doing meaningful work: researching, writing and most importantly, pitching story ideas. You will be expected to churn out relevant, witty, breaking San Antonio news and commentary on a regular basis, as well as pitch ideas and contribute to large projects regarding the city's expanding dining and drinking scene (including using Facebook Live and helping stage photoshoots). Some knowledge of food is ideal, but be prepared to learn A LOT during your semester here.

When it comes to qualifications, a journalism background and experience writing for a news site always helps, as do copy-editing, photography and multimedia skills. Students must have a strong grasp on pitching ideas regularly as interns are expected to contribute regularly.

To apply, submit a brief introduction, a resume, and two published clips to Food and Nightlife Editor Jessica Elizarraras ( with the subject: Food and Nightlife Intern. Interviews will be held on a rolling basis. Applicants who are enrolled in school and are able to receive academic credit are preferred. This is an unpaid internship; however, we offer flexible schedules. Interns may start immediately.
