Copyediting intern for video
Editorial | New York, NY | Internship
Insider Inc. is hiring a paid copyediting fellow to work in our New York City office for six months.
The Insider Fellowship Program is for early career journalists who want to spend six months learning from a newsroom full of passionate, dedicated journalists. Fellows are assigned to teams and become experts in digital storytelling. They produce real work that is distributed to our audience of millions, and leave ready for the next phase of their journalism careers. For more information on the Insider Fellowship Program, see here.
The copyediting fellow will primarily edit copy for our videos across Insider Inc. but also edit a variety of news articles and features. This person will be responsible for editing copy on-screen for grammar, punctuation, spelling, sense, and Insider Inc. style.
We’re looking for someone who can work quickly and independently, sometimes without the luxury of querying reporters and other editors. Attention to detail is necessary but so is speed.
- Professional experience copyediting, preferably for a newspaper or news website. (If you do not have experience copyediting, please do not apply.)
- Familiarity with AP style, content-management systems, social media, and instant messaging.
- Team player with a positive attitude, a sense of humor, and a good ear for language.
- Pass a two-part editing test, on page and on-screen.
This is a paid fellowship based out of our New York office. Fellows are encouraged to work 40 hours a week, and fellowships run for six months. Start date for this position will be in June.
INSIDER is great journalism about what passionate people actually want to know. That’s everything from news to food, celebrity to science, politics to sports and all the rest. It’s smart. It’s fearless. It’s fun. We push the boundaries of digital storytelling. Our mission is to inform and inspire.
