Thank you for your interest in The Oregonian’s summer internship program. All of us who had a part in the screening and selection of this year’s class appreciate the time and effort you put into preparing your application, as well as your patience in waiting to hear from us.
I’m sorry we couldn’t make you an offer. We had only enough funding for a handful of positions and the competition was quite intense, with more than 150 applicants.
These are difficult times, obviously, for the newspaper industry so we took great comfort in seeing that so many students are passionate about doing journalism.
Good luck with your studies and best wishes landing an internship elsewhere.
