Fall semester is nearly here. For college students, and people that just graduated, it’s time to look for an internship.
We’re looking for two types of interns: editorial and marketing.
Editorial interns help create content. Researching and writing features, copy editing, taking photos, editing photos, graphic design and everything else that helps get words and photos on this site. If you’re interested in this type of internship, apply here. Ideal candidates will be available Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday during normal business hours. You do not have to be a journalism or English major to be an editorial intern. If you just need college credit and want to try something different, awesome. Just like the contributors, the weirder, the better.
Marketing interns will learn about event promotion, research related to the industry, work with social media scheduling platforms (TweetDeck, HootSuite, etc.) and on light graphic design (Photoshop familiarity is a bonus). Knowing Google Drive (come on, this one is easy), Illustrator, and Squarespace is a major plus. Having a car is a super bonus plus supreme. If you’re interest in this type of internship, apply here. Ideal candidates will be available Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday during normal business hours.
Regardless of becoming an editorial or marketing intern, you will participate in all aspects of BYT. For example, a former editorial intern is currently on the BYT event staff. A former editorial intern is currently on the BYT marketing team. A former editorial intern is currently on the BYT photo team. Everyone at BYT does a little bit of everything so there’s no need to worry about applying for one type of internship and getting stuck.
The ideal intern knows why they’re here. Whether you want to develop your photography skills or writing ability or event execution, you will have an opportunity to follow your passion. If you have no idea why you’re applying but gifs seem fun, please do not apply. Once again, the weirder, the better.
Please understand that whenever we post a call for contributors and interns we receive over 100 responses. It takes time to sort through pitches and applications. If you don’t get a response right away, it’s most likely not personal or a judgement on your character. It may be but most likely is not.
This is current BYT Managing Editor Brandon Wetherbee and former BYT intern/current All Things Go Associate Editor Tam Sackman. In an ideal world, you’ll hang out with us at baseball games holding giant cardboard cutouts of beer and burgers.
Finally, you have to like Kanye West. This is non-negotiable.
