ResponsibilitiesIf your dream job involves writing all day, our editorial internship is the one for you! Our editorial interns have a lot of freedom with what they choose to research and write about. Expect to do lots of writing. In return, you’ll get bylines. And probably free samples. Also: invites to fun events! (Which you'll be covering. Fun!) There are perks, we promise! If you know the head designers of major labels by heart, follow fashion news sites daily, and participate regularly in online style communities, this is the internship for you.
In addition, there are several qualifications that are preferred but by no means necessary:
- Knowledge of blogging software/HTML
- Experience with graphic design software such as Photoshop and video editing software such as Final Cut Pro or iMovie.
If interested, please attach ALL of the following documents to your application email to be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org:
- A resume
- A cover letter explaining why your experience, knowledge, and personality make you the ideal intern for a fashion blog.
- A brief post on which fashion designer has the best personal Twitter account, and why. This is your chance to show us what you can do, so take advantage of it!
