Our interns are an integral part of our team, and many of our current writers and editors started as interns. We seek out self-starters and people who are enthusiastic about collaborating with other reporters, video producers, social media editors, and other team members.

This is a full-time internship position at our Flatiron headquarters in New York City. The internship will run for three to six months, and interns are expected to work 40 hours per week.
