Internships at Kansas City PBS, Flatland and 90.9 The Bridge
Internships - General Information
Kansas City PBS understands that internships are an important part of professional growth for students and recent graduates. Our competitive internships provide young professionals an opportunity to gain realistic perspectives of the working world while obtaining marketable work experience at a nonprofit multimedia company. Kansas City PBS intern experiences occur in all areas of the organization, including with the television station, the radio station (The Bridge) and the digital magazine (Flatland). Production, journalism, interactive, design, fundraising and administration are examples of area-specific opportunities.
Internships fall into two categories:
- Curriculum-based internships in cooperation with colleges and universities (paid minimum wage).
- Postgraduate internships (paid minimum wage for a period no longer than six months).
Kansas City PBS works directly with universities to help place qualified students across the station. Current students must coordinate with advisers and/or intern program directors to ensure all necessary requirements for college credit are clearly outlined prior to the start date of the internship.
Who Can Apply
Kansas City PBS accepts students and recent graduates from any college or university, although active recruitment and cooperative programs have been established with several regional institutions.
