Hearst Fellow 2020 - National

Program features and benefits

The Fellowship is a two-year program focusing on journalism in a changing digital world. The Fellowship program consists of two 12-month rotations at our top metro papers - San Francisco, Houston, San Antonio, Albany, and/or New Haven. Fellows will receive training, mentoring and real-world experience alongside top journalists who are using cutting-edge tools to tell stories through data, video, and more. Hearst Fellows are full-time employees with competitive salary and benefits, including health insurance and moving expenses.

  

What it could mean for your future

You may be offered a job at the end of the two-year program.

While participation in the program is not a guarantee of future employment, our goal is to recruit candidates who eventually will join our full-time professional staff. All of us at Hearst Fellowships have an investment in your future… and in the future of Hearst Newspapers.


Hearst Fellowships jump-start great journalism careers

The experience you gain as a Hearst Fellow is the start of a strong foundation for your journalism career. Our objective is to recruit, train and retain a variety of journalists, including digital developers and reporters. We identify and develop high-caliber multimedia professionals from a diverse pool of the country’s best reporters, copy editors, photographers, designers, and graphic artists. Candidates should be college graduates with interest, experience or background in journalism or related fields. Those selected will have the opportunity to grow in one of the world’s best journalism organizations.

  

How Fellows are selected A panel of Hearst’s top editors will review applications and select finalists.

Finalists will participate in a two-day interview process at the San Francisco Chronicle in April at which the Hearst Fellows will be selected. Hearst Newspapers covers all domestic travel costs for the interviews.


Professional assistance to ensure your best chance of success

If you are offered and accept a position, you will be assigned an adviser and have the opportunity to develop mentoring relationships with seasoned professionals throughout Hearst Newspapers. Your adviser will be a manager with expertise in your area of interest and will be responsible for scheduling your job rotations and designing your formal development plan.
