Media Organization: Psychology Today Magazine

Company Description

Psychology Today is devoted exclusively to everybody's favorite subject: ourselves. Founded in 1967, Psychology Today covers all aspects of human behavior and mental health, from the workings of the mind to the bonds between people and the larger cultural forces that drive our most intimate decisions. The bimonthly magazine reaches about 3 million readers.

Job Description

Psychology Today has an excellent opportunity for a few smart and talented editorial interns at our office in New York. We are a small staff, so you'll be a key member of the team. Duties include working closely with editors on story research and special projects, light clerical work, web-related work including HTML and data loading, and proofing copy. Interns also pitch story ideas and write articles for the magazine. They typically receive two or three bylines per issue. Background in psychology not mandatory, but a plus. We're looking for interns who can write clear and engaging prose and have a real interest in human behavior. Outstanding professionalism and organization are a requirement; you must be able to juggle several tasks at once and work autonomously.

Position runs May/June through August, three or more days a week (full-time preferred). Position includes a small daily stipend.

To Apply

To apply, please send your resume, cover letter, and two clips to Andi Bartz at andi@psychologytoday.com by Friday, April 1.
