Assignments could include such things as covering live music shows, the outcome of a big sports match, local politics, profiling new retailers or other community news assignments.
Interns will be presented with complimentary SNT-brand attire from Spinnaker Custom Products at the beginning of their employment, and will receive a monetary gift certificate at the completion of the internship.
