Huff/Post 50 Intern
The Huffington Post Media Group is seeking an intern to assist the editors in management of the vertical Huff/Post 50, the site devoted to baby boomers age 47 to 66. Seventy-seven million strong, they are shifting the biological, psychological, social and cultural definition of aging. We cover all aspects of lifestyle -- careers, family, aging, health/fitness, love/sex, travel, retirement, personal stories of reinvention and much more. Our interns receive excellent hands-on experience in digital production, news research and fact-checking, reporting and writing, producing content for the page, building slideshows, setting up bloggers, helping with the editorial calendar, photo and video selection, advanced social media and related administrative assistance. A great opportunity to learn every aspect of one of the world's most widely-read online newspapers.
Excellent writing/reporting/communications skills (a journalism focus in studies is very helpful); fluency with online and social media (twitter, facebook, etc.). Familiarity with blog posting a big plus. Must be detail-oriented and able to work independently, write, research, and multi-task.
This is a fall internship at 40 hours/week at $10.00/hour.
