Magazine Editorial Intern

Description

Firebrand Media, a fast-growing Orange County media company, is seeking dedicated and detail-oriented college students for an editorial internship in magazine journalism for summer 2015.

Our interns will gain valuable practical experience and knowledge working on the company’s regional magazines and luxury hotel publications. Our program offers a hands-on, real-world experience for college students looking to break into the magazine industry—meaning you won’t be going on coffee runs or filing paperwork.

Interns will have an opportunity to:
• Write content for the magazines and leave with published print clips.
• Assist editors in editing/fact-checking articles.
• Develop story ideas and participate in planning meetings, where they will pitch their ideas to the editorial team.
• Work on other assignments according to skill set and level of interest.


Compensation: This is an unpaid internship for academic credit; we will help take care of any paperwork relating to college credit. We provide a monthly stipend for gas/parking

Schedule: We are flexible and can accommodate school and work schedules, but we ask that interns commit to a minimum of 16 hours per week in our Laguna Beach office.

Please email your resume, cover letter and two writing samples (school assignments are acceptable) to firebrandmediajobs@gmail.com with “INTERNSHIP – [FIRSTNAME] [LASTINITIAL]” in the subject line. Do not call or stop by the office or your application will be discarded.
