Internship with The Online Citizen

Interns wanted! The Online Citizen (TOC) is recruiting interns to work with us as part of our team running one of Singapore’s leading social political websites in Singapore.

Being at the forefront of some of the most controversial issues in Singapore, telling the stories that the mainstream media cannot or refuse to tell, TOC has always strived to champion the voices that are not heard, within our capability to do so. To build this capacity and bring us closer towards our mission, we are calling for interested and able individuals to fill internship positions in TOC.

So if you think you have what it takes to be part of us, write in to us now! Mail to: [email protected]
