We're Looking for Summer Interns

If you love Slate, maybe you should apply.

Slate'sNew York office is hiring interns for the summer, primarily to help with the magazine's culture section. Candidates must be available at least four 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 an opportunity for occasional writing. The position is paid.

To apply, e-mail 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 internships@slate.com. Please use the subject line "Slate Internship." The deadline for summer internships in New York is March 7, 2011.

Slate's Washington, D.C., office is also hiring interns for the summer. The description for New York applies, although the internship in D.C. is focused on politics rather than culture. Fluency with computer coding—particularly JavaScript, PHP, and Python—is a major plus.

To apply, e-mail 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 dcoffice@slate.com. Please use the subject line "Slate DC Internship." Do not include a cover letter—if you do, it will be a sign to us that you do not follow directions well. The deadline for receipt of applications is March 7, 2011.
