Technology Journalism Internship – Fall Semester 2020

Alta Global Ventures is seeking interns to assist in a new initiative that will involve writing short news articles about companies in Utah’s technology sector, including portfolio companies of several Utah Venture Capital firms, startups, medium and large companies in the software, biotech, fintech, agtech and other technology sub-sectors.

Most of the work will be remote. However, periodic in-person meetings (probably not more than three) will take place at the Alta Global Ventures office in Lehi, including an initial meeting in August 2020 and a wrap-up meeting in December 2020.

The ideal applicant will have excellent research and writing skills, a strong curiosity and interest in technology and Utah’s tech sector.

Selected interns will work 4-12 hours per week on creating daily stories for broadcast on the web. Related activities include: conducting research, developing interview questions, interviewing people via Zoom and/or in person while observing COVID-19 social distancing protocols. Background and skills with video-recorded interviews, video-editing, photography and web publishing are optional but desirable.

 

Minimum Qualifications:

  • Must be a current university student.
  • Must be able to be reached via texts and phone calls.
  • Must have access to a computer with a working web-cam, and a fast internet connection.
