Welcome to the Daily Bruin's Winter 2022 internship application period!
Applications are now open and you have until Monday, Jan. 16 at noon PT to complete your application to one of the premier student newspapers in the country.
The Daily Bruin is the award-winning student newspaper at the University of California, Los Angeles. Founded in 1919, it is one of the largest student organizations on campus, consisting of more than 400 staffers across 19 sections: News, Sports, Arts & Entertainment, Opinion, Design, Illustrations and Cartoons, Graphics, The Stack (data journalism), Photo, Copy-editing, Online (web development), Bruinwalk development, The Quad (explanatory journalism), Video, Podcasts, PRIME (our quarterly magazine), Enterprise (investigative reporting), Social Media and Outreach.
We'll be holding workshops to answer questions and help you through the application process in the weeks leading up to the application due date. Experience, "connections" or an elaborate resume are not required.
Please follow us on social media (@dailybruinappinfo) for application reminders and to learn more about the Bruin – this is the main place where we'll be posting updates (in addition to staff spotlights, fun facts, section takeovers and more!). Email [email protected] with any general application questions, or contact the respective editors listed on our staff page with section-specific inquiries.
Frequently Asked Questions
- Am I eligible to apply?
If you're a UCLA undergraduate or graduate student, yes! If you are a UCLA Extension student, recent graduate, high school hopeful or otherwise, you are unfortunately ineligible to apply.
- Can I apply to multiple sections?
For this quarter, we will requiring applicants to choose only one section to apply to due to a traditionally smaller applicant pool and accepted class for Winter hiring. Please only submit an application to one section, and any additional applications will not be considered.
- When will intern training happen?
Your editors will fill you in on training specifics during the interview phase of hiring. Intern training will be held during the weekends following Week 3, 4 and 5 in person. You must also attend media law and sensitivity training upon hiring, with a date to be determined. These are all required and your acceptance to the organization is contingent upon your participation.
- Why don't I see an application for [x section]?
Select sections may not be hiring this quarter due to limits on how many interns they can take and train at a time, which includes interns who joined from our fall hiring period. We highly encourage you to return to this page in mid- to late summer to apply in the fall, when all our sections will be looking for new interns.
- Can I join [x organization] AND the Daily Bruin?
Our conflict of interest policies prevent students from working for both the Daily Bruin and political organizations/committees, including student government (i.e., any USAC office in any capacity). You may apply to the Daily Bruin and student government, but you must choose between the two if you’re accepted into both. Staffers from the Opinion section may join conventional partisan political groups (Bruin Democrats, Bruin Republicans, etc.) as long as they do not hold leadership positions in these groups. Staffers outside of the Opinion section may not join conventional partisan political groups, but may join non-partisan political groups like Bruin Political Union.
