Print Editorial Intern

Posted On: September 23, 2014

Paid Journalism Internship

Media Organization: Esquire

Company Description

A magazine for men who want to live a fuller, richer, more informed and rewarding life. Style, manners, money, culture, and cuisine.

Job Description

Esquire interns work closely with our staff and gain direct reporting and editorial experience while working five days a week in the magazine’s fast-paced offices. The job is research-intensive: Print interns conduct all the reporting for the monthly sex column and take on individual assignments as directed by staff members. Independent initiative and the ability to manage multiple tasks within tight deadlines are required. Fetching coffee for the boss is not. The print internship is full-time (10 a.m – 6 p.m.) and pays an hourly wage, with no overtime or participation in Hearst benefits.

Who we’re looking for: Candidates must have completed their third year of college. Most former interns have had some experience in journalism before applying, but we encourage all students and recent graduates with a serious interest in magazines and a desire to learn to apply. We care more about your ambition and skill than your field of study.

U.S. work authorization is required.

There are three internship cycles.

Fall: September 1 – December 31
Spring: January 1 – May 31
Summer: June 1 – August 31

Some flexibility is possible to accommodate holidays and school schedules.
