We Just Opened 30+ Positions For Our Summer Internship Program

961 is always on the lookout for ways to develop Lebanon’s young talent! Our summer internship program has proven to be an incredibly great opportunity for university students in Lebanon to get real hands-on working experience in their field of study.

961 has grown to become the leading English media company for Lebanese and the fastest-growing outlet in the country serving 4 million annual readers.

This year’s program is bigger than ever as 961 is expanding the program offering positions across all our divisions.

The positions are offered hybrid, in line with 961’s goal of being hybrid-first, with almost all available remotely with the exception of a few. Any positions indicated as remote may work in-person out of our 961 HQ (we prefer that but don’t require it).

Most internship positions are open to students worldwide, however, in a bid to develop the local talent pool, priority will be given to students in Lebanon as well as to Lebanese students abroad.

If you’re interested in the internship after the summer, mention it in your application. Ideal university programs are those relevant that we believe would be most suitable for the position, however, this is not required.

Internships are unpaid, however, 961 gives candidates who complete the program first consideration for full-time paid positions.

Here are the positions available and you can apply here:
