All AWNA member newspapers are eligible to apply to participate in the internship program, with two newspapers being chosen by lottery to host an intern. Applications received from the students will be reviewed and distributed to those two newspapers, who will then interview each student and make their selection.

Paid Digital Internship for an Alberta Student – It Could Be You!

Wednesday, 23 November 2016 10:48

Are you interested in working in a digital field after you graduate? Currently registered in a relevant post-secondary program in Alberta? Passionate about all things Internet? We might have just the internship for you!

This is the only time that you'll read Make money working from home and should believe it.

We're looking for a student to join our team of board members for 40 hours a month starting this December. And YES! It's paid. You can work virtually from anywhere in Alberta (most of us are located in Calgary and Edmonton, but no matter). We'll need you to be available during business hours for some tasks, but there's also an opportunity to complete hours on evenings and weekends as well. We know things can get hairy around exam time, and we can work around that.
