Seniors, take note:
Beginning on March 23rd, NBC will begin soliciting applications for a one-year, paid position in the NBC News Washington, D.C. bureau. The fellow will work on a rotational basis in key areas of the bureau including assignments on “Meet the Press” and with the NBC News Political Unit. Responsibilities will include assisting talent and producers, participating in news shoots, and story research. The goal is to give one graduating senior the opportunity to be mentored by seasoned NBC News staff members and truly experience a yearlong “boot camp” in political journalism.
NBC is looking for an all around outstanding student, who not only displays a talent for journalism but also is a proven leader dedicated to improving the community. NBC News will continue to sponsor the Fellowship for years to come as a lasting tribute to our friend, Tim.
Tim Russert Fellowship applications and candidate requirements will be available on http://www.nbcunicareers.com from March 23 through April 10.
