PEOPLE magazine is looking for a food intern to work closely with its food and lifestyle editors. The ideal intern is a resourceful, independent person who jumps right in and becomes part of the staff—an aspiring food writer with a passion for and at least some expertise in the culinary industry.
The intern will report and quickly write online stories—and fact check and research stories for the weekly magazine, often under intense deadline pressure.
The intern should have worked at a campus publication and/or in a food-related field—and be a creative thinker, a self-starter, professional, resourceful and a team player. Strong writing skills are a must. The intern must also be enthusiastic and see the big picture but pay close attention to detail, too—a thinker and a doer. He/she must also like working in a fast-paced, news-driven environment and feel comfortable using Twitter, Facebook and Instagram as reporting tools.
Because of the nature of news, some late evening and weekend work may be required on “closing” days. This is a full-time internship opportunity open to current students and recent grads.
If interested, please submit your cover letter, resume and writing samples to be considered.
