VICE is the world’s preeminent youth media company and content creation studio. Launched in 1994, VICE now operates in over 30 countries and distributes its programming to viewers across digital, linear, mobile, film and socials. VICE includes an international network of digital channels; a weekly and daily news programming partnership with HBO; a television and feature film production studio; a magazine; a record label; an in-house creative services agency; and an international TV network, VICELAND.

VICE interns will get a firsthand look into how an international media company functions on a day-to- day basis. At VICE, interns have the opportunity to learn about journalism, editing, design, public relations, production, and more. VICE’s Human Resources Department oversees the training and learning experience of each intern by providing interns with seminars on career development, and helping them achieve goals throughout the session. VICE is dedicated to its internship program and attracts the best and the brightest students to join the VICE family.


This internship is designed for current college students who are seeking experience in online media and are excited to learn about the day-to- day operations of a high-volume news and culture website. Tasks will include transcribing, researching, and fact-checking. Interns will receive training on our CMS to learn the basic functions for operating the backend of the website, and will be required to assist in setting up and managing short-form articles. In some cases, they will write them. There is also an expectation that the intern will work with his or her supervisor to complete a longform article on a topic of their choosing, which may be published by VICE at the end of the semester at an editor's discretion. An ideal candidate would be engaged with the news, up-to- date on cultural happenings, funny, and punctual––not to mention familiar with and the work we routinely publish.

Applicants must meet all of the criteria below to be eligible:

  • Interns must currently be enrolled in a two or four year college/university.
  • Interns must attend the required Intern Orientation.
  • Interns must be available to work the full intern session: June 5, 2018 – August 10, 2018.
  • All interns must have proper authorization to work in the United States.
  • Interns are non-exempt and will be paid an hourly rate of $13.25/hour in Los Angeles.

Note: Interns may earn school credit, depending on the school’s requirements. However, earning school credit is not a requirement of participation in the internship program and there is no option for an unpaid internship for credit.
