Interview Intern - Help build a smarter media company

Bookmark This

Description

Tell History (tellhistory.com) is a new website dedicated to democratizing history. Our platform makes it easy for anyone to have their voice heard, and together we are making a radically new record of events--one based on the stories and experiences of so-called “regular people”. We know that these people, often overlooked by traditional media, often have the most interesting and valuable stories!

We offer our interns genuinely interesting, fun, and rewarding work. Their primary responsibility is to identifying interview subjects and recording their stories. These stories will be shared on the Tell History platform and the intern will receive public credit for each video produced.

Candidates will work remotely and the hours are flexible. Technical skills are much less important than interviewing experience, intellectual curiosity, and an interest in history.

If interested, please write us at team@tellhistory.com with your resume and brief letter of motivation.

Responsibilities

-Interns must be prepared to participate in online trainings and company meetings with our staff in Europe
-Candidates should be prepared to work a minimum of 8 hours per week. The work is flexible and results oriented
-Interns must have the initiative to seek out interview candidates--people who have interesting stories to tell--and be comfortable recording them telling these stories. The journalistic drive to collect interesting stories is perhaps the single most important trait we look for
-Interns will work with Tell History tools to edit and upload recordings, create story pages, giving each story titles, descriptions, tags, and subtitles.
