Imagine spending your summer keeping tabs on our local breweries and sitting down each week to learn a brewer's story. And then sharing it with your community.

Or imagine visiting with our local farmers. Or nonprofits. Or the wide variety of people that make up our creative class.

The Rapidian has come up with some great new internship opportunities where you can spend 15 hours a week doing just that. Check out a list of the new internships below. If one strikes your fancy, read more about it by clicking on the hyperlink:

These positions are not just for writing or journalism majors. We want to extend an invitation for all majors at all local colleges to apply as well as the general public of non-students.

These specialty internships work a bit differently than any of our previous internship opportunities. Obviously they will be more topic specific, and the intern will be in charge of writing two articles per week. One article will basically be a list of events or a list of what’s going on that week for each specific topic, and another article will be a profile piece on a figure within the community.

For example, the Local Breweries Intern will write one article answering the question “What’s on Tap, BeerCity?” which will essentially be a list of all the new beers that local breweries will be offering in addition to some important events in the beer community. The second article will be a profile on a local brewer.

While developing some of these new internships, we were probably a bit too overly excited. Holly can attest: I’ve been very tempted to apply for the Local Breweries Internship. Frankly, who wouldn’t want to learn about all of the great brews on tap and events going on.

Also, you get to hang out with brewers- some of the coolest and beardiest guys around.

Make sure to check out our other available internships as well.
