Ben French at CBS passes along the following internship opportunity:

This is an unpaid for-credit summer internship – based at the CBS News broadcast center in NYC – and must be at least 20 hours a week. The selected candidate will help us manage our Twitter and Facebook accounts, which we use to break news and build audience for and the various CBS News brands (60 Minutes, 48 Hours, Katie Couric, etc).

This internship would be a great hands-on opportunity for forward-thinking journalism school student who wants a first-hand look at how a legacy media company like CBS News is using social media. We’re not looking for engineers – we need someone who understands ethics and reporting best practices – but the person should at least know the basics of HTML and have plenty of experience using the aforementioned services. Again, this is an unpaid internship and we need a candidate from a school that allows for credit-based internships.

French says the student should ideally be able to start the first week of June, but could be July for the right candidate. If you’re interested, drop him an e-mail with your resume and links to samples at
