Business Insider is looking for interns to write for INSIDER, a new publication that delivers stories to readers across digital platforms.
Specifically, we are looking for fledgling reporters who want to cover food, travel, and design/architecture/innovation.
Editorial interns on INSIDER are true multi-media journalists: They write posts, create gorgeous photo features, and collaborate with our video editors on scripts for short videos. Interns should also be ready to go out in the field to take video and photos, and interview sources.
The ideal candidate is obsessed with his or her chosen vertical. He or she is a home chef who loves to Instagram finished meals; has backpacked around the world and kept a blog about the experience; or devours design websites for the latest in home decor and style.
He or she is a fastidious reporter and writer with a passion for telling great stories. He or she has tons of ideas, and is excited to work on a new publication that's evolving quickly.
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, fight for what’s right, and 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.
Our interns are an integral part of our team, and many of our current writers and editors started in our internship program. We seek out self-starters and people who are enthusiastic about collaborating with reporters, fellow producers, social media editors, and other team members.
This internship position is at our Flatiron headquarters in New York City. The internship will run for six months, and interns are encouraged to work full-time (40 hours a week) if their schedule allows.
Please include a resume and cover letter telling us why you're perfect for the position.
