Internship Program

KQED offers a robust internship program in our San Francisco headquarters. This program provides an opportunity for anyone (yes, anyone!) with a passion for public media to gain valuable exposure to areas of our business that support KQED’s mission, goals and objectives. Interns are exposed to meaningful conversations and get to know the ins and outs of public media. Our internship program provides opportunities to learn and experience elements of the broadcast communications industry while working alongside incredibly talented interns and staff members. As a KQED intern, you have the opportunity to make valuable contributions and have a direct impact on the work we do.
