Buzzfeed offers the hottest, most social content on the web. The site is currently expanding to feature women's interest, tech and sports verticals, in addition to a new politics vertical.
BuzzFeed needs a hard-working editorial intern for a full-time paid position in the New York office. The person will work closely with editors of the soon-to-launch women's interest vertical. The ideal candidate will have some experience writing, reporting, and researching at a previous internship or school newspaper. The intern will work with BuzzFeed editors on content creation and research. This is an excellent opportunity to see the creation of a new blog from the ground up and add clips to a portfolio.
Perform photo or other research as assigned by editors of the women's interest vertical.
Write short posts.
Longer stories may be assigned depending on the intern's interests and journalistic ability.
Pitch ideas in editorial meetings.
Take notes in editorial meetings. May be asked to update the editorial calendar or perform other light administrative duties.
Previous experience in an editorial role at a school newspaper, or other internship at a magazine or website. Some blogging experience a plus.
