After graduating from SLU in 2022, I spent the summer in D.C. working as an editorial intern at the Daily Caller, an online news outlet covering a wide range of topics, from U.S. and world politics to the latest in entertainment news. I had the opportunity to be trained as an editor during the internship, and as a result gained a first-hand look behind the scenes of the fast-moving online news publication. From pitching story ideas to editing articles, I worked closely with the other editors and reporters at the Daily Caller in the newsroom each day. There were 8 other Daily Caller interns living in and around D.C., which gave the internship a definite sense of camaraderie and community and allowed me to explore the city with other college students after work and on the weekends. My summer with the Caller ultimately led to a full-time position following the internship, and I started as an Associate Editor at the outlet in late August.
