Ever been accused of being obsessive? Los Angeles Magazine wants you! Los Angeles Magazine is looking for detail-oriented, thorough, resourceful, intuitive, and determined self-starter students with excellent communication skills to intern in our editorial department.
Fact-checking, conducting research, and submitting story ideas with the possibility of writing them. Fact-checking is not always as easy as it sounds. You may need to contact the celebrity of the moment or outwit a word-savvy politician.
In researching subjects, you'd work directly with writers and editors in putting stories together (which may include doing some reporting.) You would also learn to use online services, pull court documents or locate hard-to-find sources... within minutes.
Interns will be shown how a magazine is put together from story conception to newsstand.
interns are encouraged to ask questions and explore every aspect of the business, from editorial to advertising, marketing to circulation.
For consideration, please submit your resume, cover letter, and writing samples to Eric Mercado via email@example.com.
