INSIDER food and travel writing intern

Editorial | New York, NY | Internship

Job Description

INSIDER is hiring a paid intern to write about travel and food.

The ideal candidate is a clear writer who is obsessed with all things related to traveling and eating. Expect to write about everything from trending food and travel news — like Trader Joe’s cauliflower gnocchi, the Instagram model bitten by a shark, and cheap flight deals — to evergreen features including lists of cooking mistakes, reported stories that explore trends like people Photoshopping birds into their travel Instagrams, and stories divulging behind-the-scenes tidbits on life as a flight attendant or the secrets of fast-food workers. You should also be willing to seek interviews with experts in food and travel, and volunteer to try different foods for taste tests.

This internship position is at our Financial District headquarters in New York City. It starts immediately and runs for six months. Interns are encouraged to work full-time (40 hours a week) if their schedule allows.

We're looking for the following:

  • Excellent writing skills

  • Passion for food and travel

  • Ability to package stories in exciting ways, and work at a fast pace

  • A journalism background

Our interns are an integral part of our team. We seek out self-starters and people who are enthusiastic about collaborating with reporters, producers, social media editors, and other team members.

At INSIDER, our motto is "Life is an adventure." We tell stories for, about, and by people who seize life. That means they love to travel, try new foods, listen to new music, and fight for what’s right — and they admire people who do the same. INSIDER is distributed across social media, including Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Snapchat, and YouTube , as well as on the web.

If this sounds like your dream job, APPLY HERE with a resume and cover letter telling us why you want to be our food and travel intern.
