The Boston Globe offers four programs for college students interested in working in the newspaper industry. The Co-op Program implemented in 1937 offers undergraduate students an entry-level opportunity to become familiar with the operations of a daily newspaper.
The Boston Globe/Boston.com Co-op program provides students with an opportunity to attain real-life work experience as related to their field of study. Our Co-ops are put into real jobs and have profound job responsibility. In addition, Co-ops at The Boston Globe and Boston.com work directly with Manager, Director and VP level leadership of the organization. This access to cross functional experts for both business and career advice is invaluable to building a network. It is our mission that students leave their Boston Globe/Boston.com Co-op with applicable experience, reliable best practices, and a stronger professional network.

Gail Waterhouse, Business Editorial, College: “This was my 2nd co-op at the Globe and I think I’ve learned even more this time than the first. I got so much great hands-on experience working directly with editors and improving my writing and reporting skills. A great experience working in the newsroom environment.” Read more testimonials
