INSIDER retail writing internship
Editorial | New York, NY | Internship
INSIDER is hiring a paid intern to write about retail with a focus on beauty and style for our website.
The ideal candidate is a clear writer who is obsessed with all things related to beauty and style, and who is more interested in the way big-name retail brands impact a general audience rather than niche, industry news.
Expect to write about everything from trending news — like Ulta Beauty allegedly reselling used makeup or the latest beauty sale — to evergreen reported features that include interviewing Sephora employees about their favorite products, finding out the secrets of Lush employees, and discovering shopping hacks that can save customers money. You’ll also have the opportunity to write about experiences like trying tank tops at different stores in the same size, reviewing beauty products people can’t stop talking about, and taking readers through unique stores.
This internship position is at our Financial District headquarters in New York City. It starts in spring/summer 2018 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 beauty and style
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 retail intern.
