• Several college and/or high school students per semester including summers. Shorter opportunities are available for girls 13 and up who live in the Baltimore, Maryland area.

• Mass Communication, English, Journalism, Marketing, Public Relations and Online/New Media majors preferred.
• Computer proficiency (we like Mac) and some office experience are required (ya know, copying and mailing). Experience working with social media, Microsoft Office, Photoshop and CMS a plus!
Duties vary depending on experience and skill-level, but standard responsibilities include:
• Writing. Interns contribute features, short articles, polls, quizzes, reviews, columns and celebrity profiles for our website and magazine.
• Providing editorial support. Interns attend editorial meetings; assist editors; research and fact-check stories; work with publicists; and check proofs.
• Providing administrative support. Interns sort and respond to reader letters and emails; catalog fashion and beauty samples; file issue materials and take on anything and everything else vital to the running of the magazine and website!
• Generating, managing, editing and posting content for Girlslife.com.
• Updating social media platforms such as Twitter and Facebook.
• Assisting advertising team with copy, marketing strategies and new campaigns.
Please contact us three months prior to preferred start of internship. Typically, interns work two to three days per week (but can always come in M-F if interested).Our internship hours are flexible, and we are able to work around school schedules. We prefer to give course credit as this is a non-paid opportunity.
Our offices are located in Baltimore, Maryland. Don’t live in or around Baltimore? Check out mediabistro.com
