San Francisco Chronicle
1903593 Requisition #

We’re looking for a reporter to join our fast-paced, digitally focused metro team. The intern will receive training and mentoring but also hit the ground running, covering a variety of stories and multimedia assignments from the office and in the field. Breaking news is a focus of internships, with an emphasis on crime, disasters, local government and transportation. However, there are opportunities to pursue other topics depending on interest and experience. The ideal candidate will hustle, work quickly and compete to be first on a story, while seeking to engage readers online through the savvy use of data, mapping, video and social media. We need someone with high standards who can collaborate well, has excellent communication skills and is comfortable providing and taking feedback.


Requirements: This position is full-time and will likely be a Monday-to-Friday schedule. Weekend, evening and holiday work may be required as news warrants.

  • Report and write news articles for The Chronicle and SFChronicle.com. 
  • Enhance stories by creating videos and conceiving multimedia article presentations.
  • Work with photographers, graphic artists and digital producers to develop pieces. 
  • Receive training and mentoring from editors and colleagues across departments. 
What we’re looking for:
  • Overall: Someone eager to find and chase good stories, while engaging online readers through compelling headlines and multimedia. Strong writing skills are important, as is a strict dedication to accuracy and ethics. The candidate must be able to self-manage, handle tight deadlines and communicate with tools like Slack.
  • Newsroom experience: We are looking for someone who has some newsroom experience; previous internships preferred, but not required.

Mission: The Chronicle is the Bay Area’s authoritative news source, focused on San Francisco news but inclusive of all regional and Western news that reflects the unique Bay Area experience. This position serves as an intern on the metro team. The metro department provides authoritative insight into people and events shaping the Bay Area, investigates wrongdoing and waste, and delivers the quickest and most reliable coverage of breaking news in Northern California.
