Media Organization: Us Weekly Magazine (Wenner Media)
Us Weekly is a division of Wenner Media LLC (publisher of Rolling Stone, Men's Journal, and Us Weekly magazines), covering celebrity and entertainment news. The print edition has an average of 13.1 million readers per week.
Us Weekly is currently looking for well-qualified individuals to intern in the editorial department of the magazine's New York headquarters. Interns must be highly-motivated, organized, upbeat and responsible individuals with an interest in celebrity news and pop culture.
Interns are expected to work a minimum of two full days from 10 a.m. until 6 p.m. (but should understand that longer hours are sometimes required as we work to meet deadlines to close the issue.)
Some duties that will be expected of interns include: conducting phone interviews, transcribing taped interviews, conducting man-on-the street polls, researching, covering red carpet events and press junkets/conferences on behalf of the magazine, taking notes on celebrity TV appearances, and some routine office duties.
Internship is unpaid, and school credit is available but not required.
Please submit a cover letter and resume to Brad Witter (firstname.lastname@example.org)
