Join the Curd Herd!
culture is a young and growing magazine based in Boston, MA. We’re always looking for talented, organized, and creative folks to join our family. Below are our current opportunities:
Editorial / Web / Social Media Interns
We are currently accepting applications for our fall internship cycle. Why intern for culture? culture is America’s first and best magazine dedicated to cheese. Interns get valuable insight into the modern publishing industry while also enjoying pounds upon pounds of the best cheeses on earth. Come and work alongside our small and talented staff on articles for the magazine, cheese events, photo shoots, social media marketing, and more.
In addition, to your general duties, our internships also include an educational component with guest speakers on a number of topics relevant to writing, editing, social media, and web management. We also have a networking group for current and past interns to assist with post-internship job searching. All internships are based in Boston, 16-24 hours per week, and offer flexible scheduling.
Writing & Editing: Interns are asked to write short pieces for the website daily. In addition, you may be asked to write for the newsletter or magazine. Pieces also need to be proofed and edited to make sure they match our style guide. In addition, all pieces for the culture blog and magazine are fact checked within an inch of their lives and you will likely help with this.
Social Media Management: Each intern is ask to manage a specific social media platform. This includes scheduling posts, responding to comments and questions, and recording analytics. Our social media channels include Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, Google+, Pinterest, Instagram, and YouTube.
Blogging: Most interns are asked to complete a blog series. Here are some examples of past interns’ series:
- Distant Cheeses, Local Farmers by Molly McDonough
- Real Cheese Product by Grant Bradley
- Cheese Personality by Natalie Gardino
- Writing chops: Our interns write each and every day.
- Attention to detail: No comma escapes your notice.
- Love of cheese: Seriously, we eat a lot of cheese.
- Great attitude: We work in controlled chaos… and it’s fun!
- Experience with blogging or social media.
- Photography skills a plus, but not required.
Fall internships last from September through December. Interns must be available to work in our office, no telecommuting (sorry! it’s for your own good, you’ll learn more this way). Interested candidates should send a resume, cover letter (including links to social media), and one writing sample to firstname.lastname@example.org by 8/15/2014.
