Deadline to apply for KQED Internships is May 31, 2021. If you are applying to multiple KQED internships, please state this along with the Internship titles in your cover letter.
KQED provides public radio, television and independent reporting on issues that matter to the Bay Area. We are the NPR and PBS member station for Northern California where we combine media, journalism and technology for the common good. We aspire to be the leading convener of civic dialogue in the Bay Area.
At KQED, we are a strong community of visionaries, storytellers, creators, technologists, researchers, educators and innovators who share a passion for public media. One of our core beliefs at KQED is that we are better together, that we strive to be better each day and accountable when we aren’t. We strongly encourage applications from BIPOC, people with disabilities and LGBTQIA+ people.
Are you a graphic design student looking to build design experience in a non-profit media organization? We are looking for a passionate and self-driven designer with the desire to gain real-world experience by collaborating with and learning from KQED’s internal design team.
Through this design internship, you will gain graphic design experience as a part of the KQED Creative team, a small internal creative agency that collaborates to amplify the KQED brand experience and elevate audience engagement by promoting our content, services and community partnerships. You will play an essential role in supporting the design team by developing and maintaining the KQED brand visual system and voice and creating graphic assets to support KQED’s many programs and services.
This is a paid internship, working 16 hours per week from July 19, 2021 through December 30, 2021.
