Business Insider editorial fellow, strategy
Editorial | New York, NY | Internship
Business Insider is hiring a paid editorial fellow to join our strategy desk.
The Insider Fellowship Program is for early career journalists who want to spend six months learning from a newsroom full of passionate, dedicated journalists. Fellows are assigned to teams and become experts in digital storytelling. They produce real work that is distributed to our audience of millions, and by the end of six months are prepared for the next phase of their journalism careers. For more information on the Insider Fellowship Program, see here.
Fellows on the strategy team will write about topics that delve into the strategy of success: What are the secrets to career fulfillment? What do the pros have to say about their journey to the top? How can one live a fully balanced life?
We're looking for someone who wants to take a deep dive into all sorts of themes, from job advice to lists and rankings, to interviews with successful personalities (both the well-known and those who fly under the radar). You’ll spend your time doing meaningful work: Researching, writing, pitching and producing features that will draw a wide audience to our expanding Prime service.
All our editorial fellows should have:
A journalism background and experience at a digital publication
A passion for digital storytelling and voracious reading habits
Familiarity with digital and social media
Ability to work quickly and collaboratively with a fast-paced team
Proofreading and copyediting skills
Additionally, for the strategy team, we’re looking for someone who:
Is endlessly curious about how people manage their lives
Has a sense for what makes a story unique: What are we saying that can’t be found in any other news source?
Has strong and proven headline-writing skills
Is comfortable working on both long-form and quick-hit pieces
Ability to surface and write original articles on these businesses and platforms in order to provide a perspective on the industry that readers aren’t getting elsewhere
This is an hourly paid fellowship based out of our New York office. Fellows are encouraged to work 40 hours a week, and fellowships run for six months. Start date for this position will be in June.
