CH's looking for a smart, motivated Editorial Intern who has strong writing, research and organizational skills. We're looking for someone for the spring semester to start in January, but earlier is even better. You'll need to be NYC-based and able to commit to 20 hours weekly. See the full job description after the jump.

Editorial duties include researching, fact checking, developing, proofreading and writing stories, light administrative work and some PR. Also, the intern will be responsible for sourcing, calling in and tracking products and samples and communicating with reps. This person will work primarily with the managing editor, but will also assist two other editors as needed. We’re looking for someone who feels as comfortable liaising with designers as they do writing under daily deadlines and who is eager to take on and own new projects . Our dynamic (and fun) work environment offers a wide range of opportunities where the right person will thrive and gain invaluable experience.

Qualifications

  • High level verbal/written skills
  • Great sense of personal style and a love and enthusiasm for art, design, fashion, food or music
  • Independent work ethos
  • Attentive to detail and able to prioritize multiple projects
  • Skilled online researcher (advanced knowledge a plus)
  • Fluent with a Mac platform and common software such as photoshop
  • College degree or enrollment in appropriate field
  • Experience in publishing and/or online media preferred but not necessary
  • Recent college grads are more than welcome
  • Compensation

  • A daily stipend is available.
  • To apply, follow the contact link at the bottom of the page, select "Apply to be a contributor" from the pull-down menu and send us a cover letter.
