Do you stay up late waiting for recaps of Game of Thrones or The 100 or The Mindy Project to go online? Do you love taking a deep dive into weekend box-office figures? Are you still, in your 20s, completely obsessed with Harry Potter? We’re all entertainment geeks here at EW, so as you might imagine, we’re looking for recent graduates who are passionate about pop culture and well-versed in at least two of the areas we cover (books, music, movies, TV). Daily responsibilities do include some usual entry-level tasks, such as opening mail and maintaining our databases, but a motivated intern can dispatch those in short order and move on to more exciting tasks: writing blog posts and TV recaps, reporting stories, learning our rigorous fact-checking procedures, attending movie screenings, and so on. Interns are completely integrated into daily life at EW—they attend our daily morning editorial meeting and are free to attend the section meetings (TV, movies etc.) if they would like. They are expected to pitch stories for dotcom, the print magazine, and other EW platforms; it’s rare that an intern leaves without a fistful of bylined pieces in the magazine.
This isn’t an internship for someone who thinks they might be interested in entertainment journalism; it’s an internship for someone who lives and breathes pop culture. The ideal candidate will have impeccable research, reporting, and writing skills and will already have completed at least one magazine internship.
