Editorial Internship, Nationwide
Time Inc. stands as an influential media company with 90 publications and brands under their roof, over 50 website affiliates and more than 400 annual events hosted around the world. Landing an internship with Time Inc. may seem like you’re reaching for the stars, but with the right preparations and this inside scoop, you may find yourself sitting in their office next summer.
What It’s Actually Like
Interning with Time Inc. is not all about Starbucks runs or getting your boss’s mail. Whether it’s an editorial internship with one of their publications or interning within the public relations department of one of their major brands, you’ll get tons of hands-on experience. “We’re looking for the best and the brightest minds to contribute to our company as any employee would. Our interns get to work alongside the best minds in the industry and work on real projects that have an impact on the company,” said Chelsea Stokes, HR Coordinator.
Cool Stuff You Get To Do
Each department differs, but you get the chance to master the practical tasks. Writing, editing, interviewing, filming–you name it, this 8-10 week program will allow you to become an expert.
What You’ll Learn
Your opportunity to learn the skills within your department is at your fingertips and the possibilities are endless. “An intern at Time Inc. can expect to learn as much as they want to learn. We give our interns the opportunity to learn from those they’re working with and encourage them to learn from other employees and interns who are not in their own departments,” Stokes said.
How To Prepare For Your Application
Utilizing your resources is the key for a stand-out application. “You should also practice your interviewing skills and if you want work in editorial, start gathering samples of work that relate to the content of magazine you want an internship in,” Stokes said. A perfect resume and cover letter are a given, of course, but you’ve definitely already had those edited by your Career Center.
Skills That Impress Them
“Adaptability, willingness to learn and grow, being able to take initiative and students who challenge themselves. We want intern candidates who stand out amongst the crowd,” Stokes said.
Time Inc. doesn’t just throw you out into the jungle after you’re done, but guides you with their well-endowed hand. Interns have the chance to have breakfast with the company’s CEO, Joe Ripp, and attend speaker events with senior-level employees that result in a direct path for full-time job prospects. There’s also an intern challenge at the end of the summer program that could lead to great opportunities.
