Job Requirements Babble.com is looking for a recent college graduate to become a key junior member of our team.

Babble prides itself on having an actively managed internship program where our trainees make important contributions to our site and learn a range of skills necessary to succeed in online media. We look for rising stars who want hands-on experience pitching ideas, following trends, gathering and analyzing social media data, track traffic numbers, manage online discussions on FB and other social media and supporting the needs of editors and management (coordinating meetings, managing calendars, etc). Innovative thinkers who can demonstrate problem-solving and efficient, organized work habits move to the front of the line. Because of the variety of tasks, this position will provide a unique opportunity for the right candidate to get an inside look at how an online media site works.

We're especially interested candidates that possess the following:

-- proven writing ability
-- technological savvy
-- strong PowerPoint and Excel skills
-- passion for social media and emerging media as it relates to moms
-- quantitative abilities, as this role will need to be able to learn our analytics reporting suite (HTML and other coding skills get bonus points!)
-- good organizational skills and the ability to work on deadline
-- online Journalism background/training
-- punctiliousness informed by warmth and charm

Pay is $16/hr. More importantly, this is a chance to have fun doing something you love. And working at an online magazine with 6 million unique visitors per month, you'll see inside the inner-workings of a successful new media organization, gaining experience and connections.

Sound great? Then tell us about you: a resume and a short blurb why Babble would be a great fit. Please send your information to jobs@babble.com
