We are hiring a writing intern with a focus on home for INSIDER, a publication that delivers stories to readers across digital platforms.
The role includes finding and pitching ideas for INSIDER's videos about new home products, cool homes and the people behind them, and home design innovations, as well as researching, writing, and producing scripts. Recent examples include videos about a DIY kitchen renovation and furniture that expands and compacts.
Writing interns work closely with video editors, but they do not need to have video-editing experience. We're looking for ambitious reporters who can find and chase great stories, and relay them to our audience in a compelling way. Our interns are an integral part of our team. We seek out self-starters and people who are enthusiastic about collaborating with video producers, social media editors, and other team members.
This internship position is at our headquarters in New York City. It starts ASAP runs for six months. Interns are encouraged to work full-time (40 hours a week) if their schedule allows.
INSIDER is great journalism about what passionate people actually want to know. That's everything from news to food, celebrity to science, politics to sports and all the rest. It's smart. It's fearless. It's fun. We push the boundaries of digital storytelling. Our mission is to inform and inspire. INSIDER is distributed across social media, including Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Snapchat, and YouTube, as well as on the web.
If this sounds like your dream job, apply here with a resume and cover letter telling us why you're a fit for INSIDER and detailing your interest in home.
