Paid Journalism Internship
Media Organization: People Magazine
PEOPLE revolutionized personality journalism in 1974; today it is the world’s most successful and popular magazine. Each week, the PEOPLE brand brings 81 million* consumers the latest news, exclusive interviews and in-depth reporting on the most compelling people of our time. In addition to unparalleled access to the entertainment community, the stories of real-life “Heroes Among Us” remain an essential component of PEOPLE’s editorial approach. PEOPLE.com is the premier web destination for celebrity news, photos, style and entertainment coverage.
PEOPLE magazine is looking for an intern to work closely with its beauty and style editors. The ideal intern is a resourceful, independent person who jumps right in and becomes part of the staff—an aspiring beauty/style writer with a passion for and at least some experience in the beauty or fashion industries.
The intern will report and quickly write online stories—and fact check and research stories for the weekly magazine, often under intense deadline pressure. He/she will also help keep the beauty and fashion closets organized, helping to manage the influx of all samples and products.
The intern should have worked at a campus publication and/or in a beauty- or style-related field—and be a creative thinker, a self-starter, professional, resourceful and a team player. Strong writing skills are a must. The intern must also be enthusiastic and see the big picture but pay close attention to detail, too—a thinker and a doer. He/she must also like working in a fast-paced, news-driven environment and feel comfortable using Twitter, Facebook and Instagram as reporting tools.
Because of the nature of news, some late evening and weekend work may be required. This is a full-time internship opportunity open to current students and recent grads.
Please send a cover letter, resume and writing samples to Kalina Ollinger (firstname.lastname@example.org).
