Made in the District is looking for extremely organized editorial writer interns, video editor interns, graphic designer interns, hosts and social media interns to join the MITD team! Madeinthedistrict.us is a digital content, online-based publication and production company pushing the creative boundaries across various disciplines, including film commercials, digital media, music videos, experimental, interactive content, photography, event production and more.

I am also searching for an assistant who is organized and good at multitasking. He or she will help me schedule every department, keep the calendar up-to-date with events, and will be aware of possible projects and collaborations for the production company.

Candidates can be currently enrolled in school or alumni, and should be able to dedicate at least two days per week from December 2015 until Summer 2016 with a 6 month commitment period.

Hosts will be expected to come in on time and should list their availability weekly.

Working with the MITD team will give interns the opportunity to gain invaluable editorial skills and learn about web publication processes. Candidates should have excellent writing and communication skills, attention to detail, and a sense of humor. They should also be able to work efficiently, and be flexible, dedicated and hard working. Experience with Microsoft Word and Excel, Wordpress and Adobe Photoshop is preferred.
