Employer: Techbuzz

Period of Employment: TBD

Job Description:

We have enjoyed engaging with Weber State University students this past year in TechBuzz internships for journalism, technical writing, video production and graphic art. We would like to continue the program with Weber State students. Please share this announcement with any students may be interested in participating in such an internship.

Objectives of the TechBuzz Internship  

Interns will research Utah technology companies, mostly software as a service (SaaS) companies, but also life science, biotech, medical tech, fintech and other companies that are connected with Utah. Interns will work with TechBuzz senior staff, Mark Tullis (Managing Director) and Austin Craig (Editor). Students will participate in in-person or Zoom interviews with CEOs, founders and executives of dozens of dynamic Utah companies that are making a huge contribution to the state. Past companies include Divvy, Adobe, Ancestry, Clene, Health Equity, Pluralsight, Sarcos, Recursion, MX, Qualtrics and many others. Interns will first observe and eventually conduct interviews, having prepared a list of questions in advance. The interviews are recorded. Interns receive the recording and a transcript of the interviews. They then create a first draft of a story, usually between 800 and 1000 words in length, reflecting the ideas, facts and content of that interview. They work with TechBuzz staff to edit and refine the draft into an article suitable for publication on both our website,, and on partner sites such as which is owned by Deseret News. Students are listed as author, in most cases of the articles they contribute to. Utah Business has syndicated, or re-distributed, most of our stories, including those written by interns.

Expected Outcomes of this Internship:  

This internship will afford interns an opportunity to become published writers and to build their resumes. They will learn a lot about the news writing process, especially in connection with technologies which are often highly specialized and technical, especially life science stories. They will learn about corporate communication, such as using Slack and Zoom, and will become a part of a writing team, working closely with others to craft the best possible story. They will deepen copy-editing skills. They will get to know Utah’s vibrant technology community and the economy in general. They will become acquainted with many of Utah’s business leaders. Many of our interns have received job offers from interviewees based on their performance in interviews and the quality of the communication after the interview. Some have gone on to work for major broadcast news stations in Utah.

Other points:

  • Article frequency. We would like interns to complete an article every 7 to 10 days, or more frequently for shorter articles (400-500 words)
  • Style. Interns will learn a particular journalistic writing style that we follow (see our site for examples). We will provide a style guide that we expect them to study and follow. It reflects general journalistic writing principles that most news publications embrace. We strive for accuracy. Interns will have the opportunity to interact with interviewees to verify facts and accuracy before we publish the article.
  • Communication. We will check in with interns via Slack on a regular basis to discuss progress on existing projects, new projects, new ideas, suggestions, etc. We encourage interns to communicate regularly with us via Slack, text or phone, as needed to continue progress on your writing projects. We may have a one-hour weekly call, usually on Fridays, with all TechBuzz interns to discuss projects.
  • Internship Duration. The duration of this internship is flexible depending on your internship requirements. We are flexible on your hours per week you work on projects, but 10-15 hours will be typical for most weeks.
  • Contacts. You will be working with both me and our TechBuzz Editor, Austin Craig. I will be the main administrative contact for this internship. Austin is the editorial contact.  
  • Contact: Mark Tullis
