Business Insider editorial partnerships fellow
Editorial | New York, NY | Internship
Business Insider is looking for a paid strategy (success, self-improvement, career advice) fellow for editorial partnerships.
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.
This editorial partnerships fellow will focus on our strategy vertical. The ideal candidate is endlessly curious about the secrets to career fulfillment, how people manage their lives, and what the pros have to say about their journey to the top. The ideal candidate is on top of all general interest news, is talented at headline-writing, and has a keen sense for what makes a first-person essay both relatable and compelling.
The editorial partnerships fellow on the Strategy team works with our syndication editor to review and select stories from our partners and prepare them for publication on the Business Insider website. They also help work with outside experts who write original first-person essays and opinion pieces for the site. They work on headlines and images to package stories for our audience. They become experts in not just strategy, but our other verticals (politics, science, tech, and more) and help the team connect with new partners across all subject areas.
All our editorial fellows should have:
Experience reporting and writing (school publications are great)
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
Light HTML and/or Photoshop experience
Proofreading and copyediting skills
Additionally, for the syndication team, we’re looking for someone with the following:
A passion for topics like self-improvement, finding success, career advice, work-life balance, personal finance, politics, technology, and more
Experience writing headlines and packaging stories
A good sense for what readers will find interesting
Familiarity with the various Business Insider verticals and the stories they tell
Voracious reading habits, not just of Business Insider stories but of news in general
Experience working and inputting stories into a CMS
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 late June.
