Magazine Internships: Opportunities

Magazine Volunteership Opportunities

By  

Have fun, get valuable & glamorous career experience, and help a cause you can be passionate about!

We’ve all heard horror stories about internships at magazines. 12 to 18 hour days (in heels, no less!) with no breaks. Not being acknowledged by your superiors. Spending all day on mind-numbing errands.

Grace Coddington at Vogue magazine said of Vogue’s interns: “I’m sure they are somewhat abused and we do send them out to get an awful lot of cups of coffee, but they’re learning all the time.” Well at Urbanette Magazine we think you’ll learn more by *not* being abused or getting coffee. We can get our own damn coffee!

Don’t worry: working with us isn’t stressful – it’s fun and educational!

We’re different. You won’t be filing papers, asked to stay until 3am, or yelled at. Because we publish in print twice yearly instead of monthly, the stress level in the office is nil, and the deadlines are easy to meet. Everything you do will be interesting and on-target with your career goals. If you want to switch tasks, just tell us – there’s plenty of opportunities at Urbanette!

We don’t have “internships”, we have “volunteerships”, meaning you’re volunteering not only in order to get incredible samples, instruction and learning experience, but for a good cause.

Work from home, at your leisure!

The Details:

First off, here’s the rub: Like most magazines, social enterprises and startup-style companies, there’s no pay… Buttttt we actually have a good reason for it: we use our profits to help empower women in developing countries become self-sustaining entrepreneurs. This is one of the reasons that we have “volunteerships” instead of “internships”, meaning you’re volunteering not only in order to get incredible samples, instruction and learning experience, but for a good cause.

All of our interns get coached by Hilary Rowland, our Editor in Chief. If you submit/write/create something that’s not quite up to Urbanette’s standards, Hilary and another writer will go through what you submitted with you, coach you and help you understand how to improve, until everything you create is 100% kick-ass!

We’re looking for teammates who are 100% reliable, 100% enthusiastic and 100% dedicated. People who believe in the cause, who want to learn, and who strive to go beyond what’s expected of them. We’re real sticklers about that, so if you don’t fit that description, then please don’t apply, as it’ll only waste both of our time.

Our volunteerships require that you are productive and engaged for a minimum of 15 hours per week if you want credit for school or on your resumé (about the same as most major magazines require per day!) for a minimum of four months — but we’re extra happy if you put in more time than that! We understand everyone has different schedules so, for most positions, we’re flexible with the days you can work. You are able to put in hours over the weekend as well. When it’s boiled down, we’re really just trying to avoid working with people who are flaky or not really committed, so please — make sure you’re heart’s in it!

Oh yeah, you’ll be working from home (or Starbucks, or wherever you choose). We’re looking for dedicated, passionate people, so you must have the discipline to work a minimum of 15 hours per week. If you don’t, please do not apply.

Email us at: volunteers @ urbanette.com (remove the spaces – we’re avoiding spambots) with a cover letter, resume, pdfs of your samples, any requirements listed in your preferred internship position, why you’d like this position, where you see yourself in 5 and 10 years, your schedule and when you would like to start.

We have a variety of internships available…
