I’m looking for an intern. Tell the world:
GOOD Business seeks Business Intern.
GOOD Magazine’s business vertical of one is in need of the help that only an unpaid intern can provide. The right person will be interested in journalism and business, have a sense of humor, be web-savvy and want to make the world a better, more entertaining place by writing rigorously about commercial developments both cool and awful.
Ideally, you’re an undergrad or graduate student in the Los Angeles area and able to come to our Hollywood offices, but qualified candidates who are willing to telecommute in a reliable fashion will also be considered. Journalism experience preferred but not required—if you’re savvy, especially in the business or economics fields, we can use you—but an interest in current events and the life of the mind is mandatory.
Bonus points are given for relevant skills in design, photo and video editing, data manipulation, social media and the like.
If you don’t know how to use Word, are unclear what IPO stands for, don’t read or can’t at least name-drop a few business or economics publications or writers, are unfamiliar with twitter, can’t name the Treasury Secretary or the CEO of a major company, or otherwise fail to meet the basic requirements of working on a business media venture, save us all the time.
Typical duties include helping manage coverage and projects (futzing around in spreadsheets and our content management system), research (you will need to e-mail and call strangers to ask them things, and also read a fair amount) and writing news round-ups and reported posts for our website. You will be welcome to pitch stories. Initiative will be rewarded.
In return, I’ll endeavor to get you college credit and a few solid clips, and help you with freelance pitches. You’ll have a useful experience for your resume.
Each applicant must be a current student enrolled in a degree-granting program at an accredited university. Internships are unpaid; school credit is available. Interns should be able to commit 12 to 20 hours per week, on average. The exact dates of the internship will depend on each student’s availability. Internships are broken into quarters, as you will see below.
Please send your resume, two clips and no more than four hundred words explaining why you’re the best possible GOOD Business intern to jobs [at] goodinc [dot] com. Include the term that you are applying for in the subject line (e.g., “Winter 2012 Internship”). We are looking for someone to start immediately.
