Most of the editorial staff at the Chronicle started their careers as interns. The internship is a great fit for college graduates as well as top college students. Graduates of our internship program now work at news outlets like Practical Horseman, In Stride, The Horse, Noelle Floyd, Horse-Journal, TripSavvy and the CBC. Other former interns are now working in equine photography and public relations, and others are freelance writers.
In the past interns have written cover stories for The Chronicle of the Horse magazine, produced behind-the-scenes videos at events, blogged for chronofhorse.com and pitched ideas for projects to the editorial staff that we helped them carry out.
