Jobs for Writers on pw.org

PW has a good job listing page just for writers. It’s interesting to browse through whether you’re actively looking for a job, or just want to see what sorts of jobs writers can have!

We also a post did a post a while ago where former English majors wrote in and told us what there jobs are now. You can read that here or on our Writing Advice page under “Education and Careers”.

Some parts of my hospital

Today is my last day in the hospital, the last three weeks I’ve been doing internships in the night shift and I wanted to make a post to remember this great experience. 

Hope you had a nice month :)

Internship Alert!

The wonderful women of Publishing Trendsetter and Market Partners International are looking for a spring intern!

I interned there the summer of 2011 and I loved it. I learned so much about publishing, but I also felt like I made a meaningful contribution to launching Publishing Trendsetter. This is a really old post, but it talks a bit about how I landed the internship and what it was like to work there. And if you have any further questions, definitely hit me up!

Who wants to intern at my company!?

Hey yeah writers! My team needs an intern at my real job, at a tech company (technically a digital interactive creative agency) in Manhattan. I know you are all smart, creative, lovely people so I would love to extend the opportunity to one of you!

^Live video feed of our office.

I love love love my company and think this internship is an awesome opportunity for college student who’s interested in, well, the internet. My company is small (in a good way), but we do a lot of different work—we are graphic designers, web developers, cinematographers, motion graphics artists, inventors, builders, business people, social media ninjas, and so on—so if you’re interested in any or all of those things, we’ll let you jump right in. I think our office culture is summed up nicely by our company Tumblr (those are all made by employees, of other employees, and I made the Aladdin one)—basically we have the office culture of a tech startup, without any of the annoyingness of actually being a tech startup (because we’re not). I promise we are nice, and that you won’t be bored, and that on the off chance you are sent to get coffee, we will let you get the biggest Pumpkin Spiced Latte you want, on us :)

You must be:

  • A student at a 4-year university
  • Able to receive credit for the internship from your university
  • Able to commute to my office, in downtown Manhattan

There are also a few skills on the listing (mostly familiarity with the programs we use and various social media platforms) that would be helpful, but aren’t required. Mostly we’re looking for someone who is organized, creative, loves cats*, and has a positive attitude!
