Fast Company is accepting applications for a full-time, paid editorial intern in its downtown New York City offices, with a minimum three-month commitment.
The intern will work with the senior editor of Co.Lead, a section of FastCompany.com that focuses on career and personal development, corporate strategy, and industry trends. One of the main duties will be selecting book excerpts for publication, and working with authors and publishers to secure reprint rights, as well as preparing the articles for publication (both editing and production).
The intern will attend editorial meetings and is invited to pitch stories, and will be involved in the day-to-day production and copy editing of the site. We have free coffee–but we don’t expect you to fetch it for us.
Please send your resume, a short introduction letter, and no more than 3 relevant clips to hiring editor Erin Schulte at firstname.lastname@example.org by Jan. 31.
