INSIDER lifestyle writing intern
Editorial | New York, NY | Internship
INSIDER is hiring a paid lifestyle intern for its website.
The ideal candidate is a clear writer who is obsessed with all things related to lifestyle, including food, travel, celebrities, entertainment, health, and more.
This person is a strong and versatile writer who will specialize in general interest slideshows and visual features. Expect to write about everything from what celebrities look like without makeup to optical illusions that stumped the internet to the rudest cities in America. Writers are also encouraged to try new things like eating like a celebrity or tasting different types of wine, and write about it.
This job offers an opportunity to someone who loves to tell stories in a fun and visual way.
We're looking for the following:
- Excellent writing skills
- Passion for and familiarity with a range of lifestyle subjects, including celebrities and entertainment; optical illusions, brain teasers and Photoshop scandals; health and fitness; food; travel; relationships and general wellness; and more
- Ability to be creative and 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.
This internship position is at our headquarters in New York City. The internship starts in early 2018, and will run for six months. Interns are encouraged to work full-time (40 hours a week) if their schedule allows.
