If you're a motivated and self-directed college or grad-school student, we want you to join our editorial team in Boulder, Colo. Our 10- to 15-week internships offer upcoming reporters and editors a glimpse into the inner workings of two of the best ski publications in the country: Skiing magazine and Ski magazine. You give us hard work, and we'll make you an integral part of a close-knit family.
You'll work directly with the small group of Skiing (and Ski) editors and walk away with clips from SkiingMag.com, SkiMag.com as well as both print titles. You'll also conduct interviews with athletes, be involved in gear write-ups, work on photo projects and see how two of the most respected skiing publications come together.
Duties may include: fact-checking, researching, reporting, writing, proofreading and editing articles, calling in products and gear for testing, gathering and shooting photos, participating in editorial meetings, developing multimedia packages for the web, brainstorming story ideas, planning events and editing basic html. Don't worry. We try to keep the coffee-getting to a minimum.
Interns must be willing to adapt to the ever-changing world of a trusted ski publication while being reliable and not afraid to bring ideas to the table. Previous journalism experience-—either with a local publication or a student newspaper—is preferred. Knowledge of, and an interest in, skiing is required.
DEADLINE TO APPLY:
1 p.m., Tuesday, August 12 (for fall internships)
All internships are unpaid. Interns must receive school credit.
Please send resume, cover letter and no more than three writing samples to Samantha Berman, firstname.lastname@example.org. Please indicate in the email subject line that you are applying for an editorial internship.
These 14-week-long internships are based at our editorial headquarters in Boulder, Colorado. Intern workload includes: assisting in our photo studio and on assignment, photo retouching, coordinating photography, working with our art department to build cohesive stories, invoicing, production workflow, and participating in staff meetings.
Our staff is small, so interns work closely with art directors, photo editors, and editors. Interns should be dedicated, hard-working, conscientious, and fun-loving, with a career interest in photography. A very strong foundation in the Adobe Creative Suite, as well as previous journalism or photography experience is required. A passion for the sport of skiing helps.
