Slate is offering a paid internship with the photo/art department. We are looking for a highly energetic, organized individual who has a keen visual sense. The intern will assist with photo research, building slide shows and editing photos. This is not a shooting internship; however, there will be opportunities for photo assignments. We are looking for someone who has a sense of how to identify a great photo and is a talented researcher, capable of tracking down obscure images and navigating online photo databases. Strong writing and social media skills are a huge plus. A sense of humor is critical. The intern will be working closely with Slate's photo editor and the design team as well as various writers and editors. Self-starters will leave the five-month position with an expanded portfolio and serious hands on experience. This is a 25-to-40-hour-a-week position. We are looking to fill the post ASAP. Please send a résumé, link to any relevant online work and brief statement of interest to firstname.lastname@example.org.
