It may be snowing outside, but spring is just around the corner (we swear), and we're looking for a new intern to join us at our New York office two to three days a week from May until September.
Interning at Fashionista is an amazing and rewarding opportunity. In fact, several members of our team (including moi) started off in our internship program.
You won't be fetching coffee here: Our interns are responsible for producing others' stories and writing our daily news roundups, so we expect them to be well-versed on brands, designers, industry business leaders, models, editors and photographers. You should be fashion news-obsessed, a regular peruser of the blogosphere and fashion sites, and have a knack for finding under-the-radar news and coming up with interesting story ideas. Also, you should be able to recite Choupette Lagerfeld's dietary demands at a moment's notice. Well, OK... maybe not that. But you get the picture.
Of course, excellent writing skills (and a fresh voice) in a fast-paced environment are an absolute must, and proficiency in Photoshop — and experience with an online CMS like WordPress — is a major plus. We're seeking out seriously talented peeps, whether you're still in school or already have a degree. The internship pays $10 an hour.
So, want to be the newest addition to our lovely and amazing team? Just send your resumé, cover letter (tips here!) and two writing samples to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line FASHIONISTA INTERNSHIP. You need to be based in NYC, have at least two free days a week and be able to start in mid-May. Can't wait to hear from you!
