The future of the media industry isn’t just up to executives at The New York Times and Ogilvy. It will also be shaped by young entrepreneurs who are dreaming big at startups like Kickstarter, Flipboard and Storify — and maybe even by someone like you.
Reese News Lab is offering students a chance to gain experience in a startup environment and to develop a political news product. You will work in a small team of journalists, developers and business students to dream up an idea, formulate a business plan and develop a working prototype of that idea.
We’re looking for:
- J-school students who suspect it’s still possible to make money in the media industry,
- Business students who are interested in mobile entrepreneurship, and
- Programmers with experience developing for web and mobile environments.
Apply to be a part of our startup team by 12 p.m. on Wednesday, April 10. Submit a list of three references, your resume and a statement about why you would like to join a research and development team to email@example.com.
If you have questions about this opportunity, contact John Clark at firstname.lastname@example.org or come to the information session on Wednesday, April 3 at 5 p.m. in the Reese News Lab (Carroll Hall, Room 11).
