Axios Charlotte Internships
We’re looking for media talent to join our Axios Charlotte team.
Here at the Agenda, we take internships seriously – our two most recent employees started off as interns. You will be expected to immediately add value. We’re looking for self-starters who are obsessed with media, not people that need hand holding.
Agenda internships last between 8-12 weeks. We can likely work around your schedule, but we prefer our interns to work 15 hours per week in person at our Axios Charlotte office (just behind Bank of America Stadium). All internships are paid.
