Internships

Most interns in top newsrooms come from very selective universities

A new study from Voices, a student program run by the Asian American Journalists Association, finds that 2 out of 3 summer interns from 7 top newsrooms came from among the most selective colleges in America.

By the numbers: "65% of summer interns from a group of publications including The New York Times, the Washington Post, the Wall Street Journal, NPR and Los Angeles Times, came from among very selective universities in the nation," the group writes in a blog post.

Long gone are the days of unpaid internships, at least at these 25 companies who are paying interns more than what the average American earns.
