During the last few months, the Kane County Chronicle has benefited from the work of three interns: Michaela Simone, Shea Lazansky and Morgan Cannata.
Michaela and Shea primarily have shot photos for the Chronicle, while Morgan has designed pages.
The three recently worked together on “The Wizard of Oz” feature that appeared in the Planit Kane section of Thursday’s newspaper.
But all internships must come to an end, as will be the case with our interns.
And it is on that note that the Chronicle is calling out to those interested in obtaining a sports or photo internship this fall.
We’re seeking college students who are enthusiastic about journalism.
For the sports reporting internship, the ideal candidate would be able to work some evenings and weekends.
He or she also would have to meet high accuracy standards.
“[They] must be comfortable writing under tight deadlines and familiar with journalistic writing style,” wrote Chronicle sports editor Jay Schwab. “Knowledge of [the] local sports scene also would be helpful.”
For the photo internship, some photography or photojournalism experience would be preferred.
The schedule would involve working one to two weekday afternoons or evenings each week, with some possible weekend work.
“Hours are flexible,” wrote Chronicle photo editor Sandy Bressner. “Having an outgoing personality and ability to talk to strangers, as well as adequate writing and spelling skills, [are] a must.”
Interns at the Kane County Chronicle must receive college credit. Internships are not paid.
