INSIDER editorial intern, food and travel
Editorial | New York, NY | Internship
INSIDER is hiring a paid intern to write about travel and food.
The ideal candidate is a clear writer who is obsessed with all things related to traveling and eating. Expect to write about everything from trending food and travel news — like Trader Joe’s cauliflower gnocchi, the Instagram model bitten by a shark, and cheap flight deals — to evergreen features including lists of cooking mistakes, reported stories that explore trends like people Photoshopping birds into their travel Instagrams, and stories divulging behind-the-scenes tidbits on life as a flight attendant or the secrets of fast-food workers. You should also be willing to seek interviews with experts in food and travel, and volunteer to try different foods for taste tests.
This internship position is at our Financial District headquarters in New York City. It starts immediately and runs for six months. Interns are encouraged to work full-time (40 hours a week) if their schedule allows.
We're looking for the following:
Excellent writing skills
Passion for food and travel
Ability to package stories in exciting ways, and work at a fast pace
A journalism background
Our interns are an integral part of our team. We seek out self-starters and people who are enthusiastic about collaborating with reporters, producers, social media editors, and other team members.
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.
