The International

Hi all,

Here is another email with opportunities for undergrads. Of course, if you are interested, you should contact them directly. I am not affiliated with any of them, I am just passing the word along.

Hope this helps!

This is what they said:



I am contacting you on behalf of The International, a news platform that features articles from a variety of sources on issues of public interest: http://www.theinternational.org.

We are currently looking for reporters of economic topics at Rochester. We provide our interns with all the training on how to write for the online environment while maintaining high journalistic standards, a skill that proves invaluable for anyone who may want to break into journalism or write a blog in the future.

A little about us: We are a small, but dedicated team that works unwaveringly towards furthering global understanding of issues through focused investigative journalism. Our team has always been quite young, with most people at the company in their twenties, but we have established very high standards for ourselves. Our goal is not to shape what people think, but to carefully nourish a more perspicacious approach towards consuming the news. We are an independent company.

If you want to dig deeper into what The International is and offers, you can take a look at our editorial policy here: http://www.theinternational.org/EP.

Finally, you can email your students and point them to apply for our internships here: http://www.theinternational.org/opportunities. We can only process applications sent through this link. Please let me know if you have any questions.

Match Corps

Hi all,

Sometimes I receive emails from employers looking for senior UofR students to apply. I will post those here. Of course, if you are interested, you should contact them directly. I am not affiliated with any of them, I am just passing the word along.

Hope this helps!

Here is their blurb:

ATTENTION SENIORS – do you:

a) Want to be a highly effective educator in urban schools?
b) Want to volunteer for a year before grad school, law school, or medical school?
c) Want to get involved in education reform or public policy?
d) Want to transition into a career in the non-profit or education sector?

If so, consider committing a year to the Match Corps, a one-year urban education service fellowship. Corps members volunteer full-time in one of our charterschools in Boston, or in a traditional district school in Lawrence with whom we have partnered, tutoring and mentoring a small caseload of students. We also offer the Match Teacher Residency, so that in addition to tutoring full-time, Corps members can train and earn certification to become full-time teachers in other high-need urban schools.

We recruit from all majors; candidates do not need to have a background in education. We seek candidates with strong content backgrounds – math, science, English, history, etc, and those who share our passion for social justice and education reform.
