As the need arises, college- and entry-level editorial internships are offered with Publishing Groups (Art, Lifestyle, Entertainment, Food/Drink, and Childrens’) and, more rarely, with Marketing/Publicity and Sales teams. These are hourly positions with highly flexible schedules. Each internship consists of 150 paid hours and may not be used for school credit. Students are placed throughout the year and start dates vary.
Intern responsibilities vary, but can include evaluating manuscripts, aiding in mail/submissions sorting and declines, helping with mailings and publicity campaigns, attending meetings, and many other small office tasks. All interns must be highly organized, flexible, and able to effectively multitask. Background or interest in publishing is a plus.
The internship is offered on a rolling basis, so students may submit their resume and cover letter to our design assistant, Anne Kenady (firstname.lastname@example.org) directly whenever they have availability. Please be sure to note “Internship” in your subject line.
