Do you want to make things with us? Want to get sent out on adventures, write, and wreak some culture up on this site?
It’s that time of year again so get your shit together. We’re a little different. We like to make things. Also, we have a really nice office and a lot of food (see photo.) Alas, our beloved intern Irina Dvalidze is joining the Huffington Post Video team. Former ANIMAL intern, the talented Nate Cepis is now our staff designer. Our amazing full time writer/interviewer extraordinaire Andy Cush was once a summer intern.
Also, we want young blood because it is delicious.
ANIMAL is Seeking Editorial Interns, Starting January 2013!
Ideal candidates are available daily or for as many days a week as possible — working mostly from the office or on assignments, though sometimes remotely. Please show us your journalism/blogging experience or other valid demonstration of strong writing/thinking/not-bullshitting/speed and efficiency skills. Interest in art is very much appreciated. We’d love to have people who know their way around WordPress, Photoshop, and most importantly, the streets of New York City. Oh, you can take pictures and edit video too? Great! Self-motivated, detail-oriented, curious people who care about the city, art, film, graffiti, activism, weird stuff and happenings are wanted.
Editorial Intern Duties Include:
Finding fresh and inspiring content online and IRL.
Writing blog posts.
Working on full original stories. Real journalism.
Transcripts and maybe holding a boom mic or something.
If interested, please e-mail a quick cover letter, resume, availability, school info and, most importantly, links to 5-10 things you’ve written, plus stuff you’ve made if you have other creative interests and links to your personal page/Twitter/whatever looks clever, if you like. Pitch firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject “Editorial Intern Application.” Application deadline: January 4th, 2013. This is a paid internship. You do not need to be in school. No cowards wanted.
Our newest interns have interviewed some weird, risque burlesque performers, made a kick-ass supercut of famous people playing themselves, hunted pigeon portraits for our very popular Today’s Pigeon feature and so much more… Our previous interns have edited a viral Russian dash-cam car crash supercut, designed pictogram icons for a history of NY subway deaths and the ANIMAL stickers (pictured above), deconstructed “the mafia pizza” recipe, visited a Mariachi Academy in East Harlem, spent a night in a mini art dome in a park, told the Boy Scouts they can keep their medals, interviewed the cast of “Copper,” and hung out with freaky circus peeps who hang shrunken heads from their scrotums.
We’re also looking for freelance writers.
