Bustle.com is a new force in women’s media. No topic is off limits — Bustle.com covers a range of subjects including politics, women's health, fashion, books, and — of course — all things Beyoncé. The site, which has over 30 million monthly unique visitors, boasts a diverse contributor base of more than 100 writers from across the U.S., and is run by editors with prior positions at Entertainment Weekly, Seventeen, Glamour, The Huffington Post, The Daily Beast, and more. Launched in July 2013, Bustle.com is headquartered in New York City.
Bustle.com offers PAID academic year and summer writing internships for all of our sections as well as other areas including sales, marketing, social media, graphic design, engineering, and more.
Bustle.com is searching for PAID writing interns to start Fall 2015 who specialize in one of our site's verticals: news/politics, entertainment, fashion/beauty, lifestyle, or books. Interns work directly with the vertical's editor to contribute daily news posts, features, and originally reported pieces (yep!).
Writers have the opportunity to produce at least three articles daily and be featured on the site as contributors. Applicants should be recent college graduates or in their final years and should be looking to build a clips portfolio to pursue a career in journalism. Applicants should have proven writing skills, experience pitching stories, a wealth of ideas, and be passionate about covering one of the following topics:
-Lifestyle (women's issues, relationships, sexuality, feminism, careers, food, health)
-Web Culture/Viral Content (weird news, viral videos, cute animals, photo essays, etc.)
Applicants should be available 2 full days per week and are able to work remotely or from our Manhattan office.
To apply, please send a short note about why you're interested, a resume (PDF is preferred), and three related clips (links to published work preferred) to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line "Fall Internship: Topic - Your Name."
We have internships available every semester and operate on a rolling application basis. The sooner you apply, the better! DEADLINE: Fall (September 1)
