The Veterinary Information Network News Service is accepting applications for its summer 2021 news reporting internship.

We are seeking a wordsmith who is deeply curious about the world, dogged in the pursuit of answers and a stickler for accuracy, with the self-discipline to work from home.

The VIN News Service is an independent media outlet that reports news of interest and importance to veterinarians around the world. The topics we cover span business, medicine, science, technology, government and the law. VIN News is part of the Veterinary Information Network, an online membership community for veterinarians.

VIN is based in Davis, California, but the VIN News staff works remotely. The intern will communicate with the news team primarily by Slack, telephone, email and Zoom. The position is 25 to 30 hours a week for 10 to 12 weeks, with flexible start and end dates to accommodate the intern's academic calendar.

The internship is an opportunity to publish substantial bylined articles (upwards of 1,000 words); identify and develop story ideas; practice investigative reporting techniques; edit and proofread; and, if interested, help develop podcasts. An outstanding performer may be invited to continue working with VIN after the internship is complete.

To apply:

1. Find a story on http://news.vin.com that captures your interest and attention. In 200-400 words, explain and elaborate on your reaction to it.

2. Imagine you are assigned a story about Best Dog Food Ever, which has just announced a recall due to contamination of its kibble that appears to have sickened dozens of dogs, some fatally. You would like to interview the company's head of quality control. Write the subject line and body of an email in which you introduce yourself, explain the story you are working on and request an interview.

3. What sources do you turn to for news? Why are these your preferred sources

4. In video of one to two minutes, introduce yourself and tell why you are interested in exploring a career in journalism. If reporting on veterinary medicine and the veterinary profession are of particular interest to you, explain why.
