Join the Reese News Lab
Reinventing Powering A Nation
Spring 2014 class and Summer 2014 internship
1 p.m., Nov. 1
5 p.m., Nov. 8
Reese News Lab is looking for entrepreneurship-minded students to dream up and implement a new business strategy for Powering A Nation, the journalism school’s award-winning project on environmental issues.
We’ll select a diverse team of four UNC students. These students might have a passion for environmental issues, journalism, business, marketing or programming. Having a team member with knack for sales or math wouldn’t hurt. But above all, we’re looking for creative students ready to look at the challenges of the media industry in a new way.
Your charge will be to develop product ideas related to Powering A Nation, research the viability of those ideas, create product prototypes, and ultimately launch your product.
Where & When?
You will enroll in a Spring 2014 class that will meet on Mondays and Wednesdays in Carroll Hall from 9-10:15 a.m. Please keep your schedule free at that time if you choose to apply.
You will then work a full-time paid internship in the Reese News Lab from May 19-August 15, 2014.
This project will give YOU the chance to learn about the business of the media industry and revitalize the industry by trying new ideas.
More information: Contact John Clark, email@example.com.
How do I apply?
Send a written recommendation and your resume to firstname.lastname@example.org by 5 p.m. November 8.
Why Reese News Lab?
Let’s say you’re in a job interview and they ask what experience you have. You show them your portfolio. They say, “That’s great, but what else?”
Reese News Lab is the “what else.” In simplest terms, the Lab is a team of paid innovators who work to create news products that you will then pitch at the end of the semester. Along the way, you’ll learn skills and gain experiences that you won’t get anywhere else.
The Reese News Lab is located in Carroll 11 in the basement (think more “hobbit hole of possibilities” than dungeon) of the UNC School of Journalism and Mass Communication.
