Media Organization: AOL
Yes, AOL has been around for more than 25 years, and yes, we are a leading global web services company operating one of the largest Internet subscription access services in the United States... but big-time things are in the works here. Our already extensive suite of brands now includes industry game-changers such as Huffington Post, Patch, TechCrunch and About.Me. We're working with up-and-coming artists from around the globe to re-invent our brand and help shape the art and design of tomorrow. We're not just embracing the newest online technologies, we are creating them. And at this very moment, we are re-energizing the Web as you know it with the highest quality content possible. Bottom line: We're not your grandma's AOL.
AOL has an immediate opening for an editorial intern in New York. AOL HD, is AOL’s latest effort to distribute content to connected devices, one of the fastest growing consumer electronics segments. Connected devices enable the delivery of online content to traditional consumer electronics such as TVs and Blu-ray players and also includes standalone boxes such as Boxee, Roku, and Apple TV. Our goal is to engage users beyond the PC and bring AOL content into the living room.
Interns will be asked to write and edit descriptive data for our library of videos, research topics and perform other tasks as assigned. This is an ideal opportunity for those interested in new forms of online media distribution and video.
Ideally, interns should have previous writing experience and be creative enough to distill a 30 minute video down to a few compelling sentences. Applicants should be very comfortable with computers, spreadsheets, social networking and online tools. Familiarity with online video and connected devices is a big plus. Role requires 15-20 hours a week.
