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 winter/spring 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.

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.
