Seattle Metropolitan is seeking smart and outgoing interns for our
editorial department, located in Seattle, Washington. *We are now
accepting applications for our internship program during the summer term
(starts in May or June, ends in August or September) in the following
beats, or areas of concentration: Food and Drink, the Arts, Mudroom,
Copyediting, Multimedia, and Style/Bridal.*
WHAT WE OFFER
*Learn firsthand how an award-winning magazine and website are put
together.* Editorial interns are responsible for fact-checking; primary
research and reporting for food and drink and arts blogs; editing blog
posts for typos, bad links, and for optimized positioning in web
searches; writing event and business listings; participating in team
brainstorms; assisting editors in conceptualizing and/or executing
features such as Best Doctors and multimedia projects such as
slideshows, audio, and/or video content; and assisting with some
administrative tasks. Editorial interns focusing on seattlemet.com are
responsible for uploading magazine content to our website using our
content management system and editing blogs for SEO.
Interns are expected to work closely with the respective editors of
their beat and must be willing to pitch in where needed in a fast-paced,
deadline-driven environment. *Interns who shine at the simpler tasks
will have the opportunity to work on larger projects,* such as
contributing to features and writing departments. We want our interns to
walk away with strong clips that they have earned.
The position requires a minimum of 20 hours a week in 4- to 5-hour
stints between the hours of 8:30am and 5:30pm weekdays.
*The ideal candidate is eager, independent, and wants to learn.*
Candidates should be working toward a bachelor's or master's degree in
the liberal arts, especially journalism, English literature, publishing,
or creative writing; graduates are also accepted. Successful candidates
commonly have previous editorial experience at school magazines,
newspapers, or journals; strong interest in magazine writing; good phone
and research skills; and the ability to juggle several assignments at
once. Interns must be located in the Seattle area during the internship.
Experience with InDesign, Photoshop, and content management systems is
helpful but not required. Digital photography and/or video experience is
helpful but not required.
*Unpaid*; students may take the internship for college credit. And,
ahem, you will learn firsthand how an award-winning magazine and website
are put together.
We accept applications on a rolling basis for all terms (winter, spring,
summer, fall). *Application deadline for fall internships (beginning in
August or September 2012) is March 29, 2012.*
