  • Familiarity with AP style, content-management systems, social media, and instant messaging.
  • Team player with a positive attitude, a sense of humor, and a good ear for language.
  • Pass a two-part editing test, on page and on-screen.

Apply here with a résumé and cover letter if interested. 

Please note that this internship requires that you work in our Manhattan office. Interns are encouraged to work full-time (40 hours a week) and the internship is paid hourly.
