Join #TeamForbes this Summer
Each summer, Forbes selects a handful of student reporters to join the Forbes newsroom as our Editorial Intern Class. Our interns have written dozens of posts for Forbes.com and contributed to some of our biggest flagship lists, including the Forbes 400 ranking of the wealthiest Americans and America’s Top Colleges.
Interns are assigned to a beat—Business, Education, Innovation, Lifestyle, Money, etc.—and work closely with their corresponding editor throughout the summer. You will receive support and mentorship to meet professional goals, accelerate your learning and hone your writing and storytelling skills.
Our internships are our funnel to begin careers within journalism. Many of our interns have transitioned to full-time roles within our newsroom. We are looking for rising journalists who embody the Forbes entrepreneurial spirit to innovate, identify new opportunities and who are passionate about learning.
