We’re Looking for Spring Interns

If you love Slate, maybe you should apply.

Intern for Slate

Slate's New York office is hiring interns for the spring to help with the magazine's culture section, with the photo and art department, and to contribute to our news blog, The Slatest. Candidates for the culture section must be available at least two full days per week. They must be highly organized, have a proven interest in the arts, and be very familiar with Slate. They must also be able to work quickly, efficiently, and without much supervision. For the right candidate, there may be opportunity for occasional writing. Candidates must be full-time students (in college or graduate school).

To apply, email a cover letter that clearly outlines your availability and cultural interests, a résumé, a short critique of any "Culturebox" from the last year (no more than 300 words), and three clips or writing samples (links are fine, but no PDF files) to slatecultureinternship@gmail.com. Please use the subject line "Slate Culture Internship." The deadline for fall internships in New York is Dec. 1, 2012.

Slate's Washington, D.C. office is also hiring interns for the spring. The description for New York applies, although the internship in D.C. is focused on politics rather than culture. Candidates must be full-time students (in college or graduate school).

To apply, email a résumé; a 300-word critique of any Slate story from the last year relating to politics, policy, the law, or other Washington-related topics; and three clips or writing samples to slatedcinterns@gmail.com. Please use the subject line "Slate D.C. Spring Internship." The deadline for receipt of applications is Dec. 1, 2012.

Slate’s New York office is also looking for applicants for a spring internship with the photo and art department. Interns will gain hands-on experience editing photos, producing slideshows, and selecting art. Applicants must be matriculated students, available at least 15 hours a week for 10-12 weeks. They should be highly organized visual thinkers who are comfortable working efficiently and without much supervision. This is an editing—not shooting—internship; however, there are ample opportunities for motivated interns to work on special projects and publish their work. This internship is unpaid. To apply, email a cover letter that clearly outlines your availability, a résumé, and links to visual works online (no PDF or attachment files please) to vivian.selbo@slate.com by Dec. 1, 2012.

Slate's New York office is also seeking highly energetic, self-starting individuals who have a nose for news, along with sharp and quick writing skills, to contribute to our news blog, The Slatest. Applicants should be tech-savvy and have great editorial judgment. Previous reporting experience is a plus, and the ability to write clean, quick, and clear copy is a must. This position is unpaid, and candidates must be currently enrolled in college or grad school to apply. This internship is part-time, two full days a week starting this spring. Applicants must be able to work out of Slate’s New York office. Please send a résumé and very brief statement of interest to slatestjob@gmail.com. Deadline is Dec. 1, 2012.
