Fall internships available at Philadelphia's leading sustainability magazine
Grid interns will help table events while learning the ins and outs of working at a niche publication.
Are you passionate about sustainability and looking for a way to get involved in Philadelphia? Grid, Philadelphia’s leading sustainability magazine, is looking for eco-minded individuals interested in an editorial internship during the summer. Internships at Grid provide an experience for current or recent students to learn the ins and outs of what it takes to put out a free monthly niche magazine.
Interns will work closely with the Sales & Marketing Manager and are an integral part of the process. While learning how to improve his or her writing skills, our interns manage our popular events calendar, fact-check articles, blog and carry out social media strategies, and occasionally help us table events. The position requires strong writing skills and a well-rounded awareness of environmental issues.
The internship is 12 to 20 hours per week and very flexible about schedule; and typically internships last 10 to 12 weeks, but can be extended. The positions are unpaid, with the option of receiving school credit. Internship lengths mirror semesters and are broken into three parts: spring (January through April), summer (May through August) and fall (September through December). We would consider other options for a strong candidate.
Internship applicants should email a cover letter describing their qualifications, including how Grid interests them and what they’d like to learn during an internship, along with a resume and any recent writing clips (no class papers, please) to firstname.lastname@example.org. In general, the most helpful writing samples show your ability to research facts, organize information, and interview a variety of sources.
No phone calls please. We only meet in person with applicants under serious consideration for the internship.
