Dear Residents Of The Internet,

We here at On Point are a happy, healthy bunch — as you can see in the photo above — but we are always looking for more help with the turning of the seasons. As summer winds down and autumn gets closer, our thoughts turn to harvest, and we’re most interested in harvesting a new crop of interns.

Do you like making radio? Are you an avid news junkie with a passion for cutting past the talking points and getting right to the heart of the big issues? Do you enjoy listening to hours of Congressional testimony and cutting it down into easily digestible chunks of audio goodness? If so, an On Point internship might be just the thing for you this fall!

Fall internships start September 1, and the application process is live and waiting for your application. (A few points: you must live in or be willing to relocate to the Boston area for the duration of the internship, we are unable to provide formal pay as a part of our intern program, college course credit is potentially available, and coffee / tea is provided gratis.)

All the relevant application information is available here. Hope to see you soon!

Please follow our community rules when engaging in comment discussion on this site.
