Science and Innovation Intern
Editorial | New York, NY | Full Time
Business Insider is hiring a paid editorial intern to aid our coverage of world-changing ideas. It will be your job to find the most interesting angles on what's happening in the worlds of design, cities, activism, food, sustainability, and everything in between.
Interns at BI aren't sent on coffee runs, or forced to spend their days filing or making copies. Our interns are an integral part of our team. Many of our current writers and editors started as interns.
BI interns spend their time doing meaningful work: researching, writing, pitching, and producing features — even breaking news if the timing's right. We want people who can find their own stories, pitch them, and write quickly, cleanly, and intelligently. We will have you producing as much as you possibly can in no time.
Our style is smart, conversational, exciting, and geared toward a general audience.
This position is based out of Business Insider's New York office. Internships run for up to 6 months, and interns are encouraged to work up to 40 hours a week.
The ideal candidate will have:
-- Experience writing for a news outlet or a degree in journalism or related concentration.
-- An interest in the trends that will shape how we live and work in the future.
-- An understanding of how to write for a broad audience.
Apply here if interested. Please include your resume and a cover letter telling us what excites you about covering these topics.
