A leading global provider of print and media solutions, Quad/Graphics is powered by a passion for innovation and the most advanced platform in the industry. Our collaborative team of “can-do” people continually challenge the status quo, creating groundbreaking solutions that push the boundaries of communications.
Milwaukee Magazine, one of the nation’s finest city and regional publications, has editorial internship positions available for the fall semester. The unpaid internships require 15 to 20 hours a week and must be taken for college credit.
We seek journalists with a commitment to accuracy and detail as well as a knack for telling Milwaukee’s stories to our 200,000-plus readers. You’ll be doing plenty of fact-checking, and we prefer candidates who have prior experience fact-checking. You’ll balance that with some writing for our print editions and our website, milwaukeemag.com. You’ll also be involved with larger research projects. You’ll sit in on – and participate in – brainstorming sessions that help decide the direction of the magazine’s editorial content. And the only coffee you’ll get is your own. This is a professional role.
We take pride when former interns, having honed and expanded their skill set here, move on to full-time positions at newspapers, magazines or other communication jobs. In many cases, they’ve returned to our offices for full-time jobs or become regular freelance contributors.
Please submit a cover letter along with your resume explaining what sets you apart from the field, along with a resume and three writing clips. Send pieces that display your style and versatility. Finalists will be contacted for an interview. No phone calls please.
Interns will work 15-20 hours a week at our Historic Third Ward offices in Downtown Milwaukee. You should have experience working in a journalistic environment, be it a professional or a student publication. You should never assume the facts are correct and be comfortable in verifying them. You should know AP Style, and if you’re not familiar with our magazine, you should rectify that soon. The part-time position carries a college credit requirement, so applicants must be able to receive credit for the internship.
