Description

We are a trendy, 'non-stuffy' new media company, based out of Philadelphia PA, looking for aspiring journalists for our journalism/blogging internship with our burgeoning viral news website.

You would be TELECOMMUTING (you would work from your own location), which means you can still have/maintain a job in your local area. While many interns feel that telecommuting will still give them an opportunity to 'live their lives,' if telecommuting is problematic for you, then this may not be the right fit for you.

We do guarantee that will our many years of experience, you will feel like you are a part of something big, and you will obtain great experience.

Responsibilities

Please note: You will learn to work the WordPress platform (If you are not versed in it already). These duties will vary in accordance to your skill set and comfort level (these are just some of the possible responsibilities):

*Online researching and writing both original and curated news
*Ability/desire to jump on trends quickly
*Using creativity to write quizzes/polls
*Possible celebrity interviews (as we look to add this to this platform, which we have had on our past platforms) - via email or phone (in-person possible)

*Product reviews
*Listicles
*Fashion
*Tech
*Gathering funny/viral content

We are fair in all of our practices, and always encourage people to think outside of the box and bring their own creativity
