  • Spring 2019 Photography Intern

    Posted: December 17, 2018 | Position type: Internship Part Time Temporary

    United Way is seeking a current College Photography or Photojournalism Major in their Junior or Senior year to provide photography support for the Marketing and Communications department. We are looking for someone to focus on covering stories that illustrate United Way’s impact and showcase the clients and communities that we serve throughout the Chicago region.

    The intern will accompany Communications team members to off-site assignments throughout the region to photograph people, programs, events and neighborhoods. These photos will then be used to elevate original content posted on the United Way blog and shared through social media channels, positioning United Way as a resource for information on issue areas (such as health or education), philanthropy and Chicago’s neighborhoods.

    Interns will also learn and have exposure to the overall daily operation of the Marketing and Communications department and the organization as a whole, and will be provided a well-rounded, hands-on experience in the non-profit environment.

    United Way internships are unpaid and must be school-sponsored with specific requirements for completing a certain number of hours, as required by the course of study and college. Credit approval from the college must be arranged by the student.
