Prose Media LLC (prosemedia.com) is an innovative content writing service for businesses, helping to usher in the future of “brand journalism.” 

We are seeking a smart, motivated, tech-savvy intern for a 6- to 12-month paid internship in NYC (in Greenwich Village, near NYU). Pay is hourly. Hours are either part-time or full-time. Start date and end date are flexible. The internship has the potential to turn into a formal position. 

You will work directly with the CEO or Managing Editor who will regularly train you throughout the opportunity.

RESPONSIBILITIES:

Startups are crazy; help us tame the beast and keep things running smoothly, while getting a hands-on education in marketing and entrepreneurship. Responsibilities are largely administrative and focus on project/account management, with occasional editing/proofreading tasks. Specific duties may include: 

-        Helping assign (“match”) new client projects to relevant freelance writers
-        Facilitating key milestones in the editorial process (e.g., submission, revisions); handle scheduling; ensuring deadlines are met
-        Tracking and recording data via online applications (e.g., Salesforce)
-        Assisting in editing and proofreading materials
-        Interacting with clients and writers (via email and phone)

-        Generally assisting with administrative tasks (e.g., sending emails; scheduling calls; preparing docs and copy based on templates)

KEY QUALIFICATIONS:

Three sets of traits are essential. You should be:

-        An exceptional editor and writer
-        Extremely organized and obsessive about details
-        Highly self-driven (i.e., enjoy working independently)

Specific experience in editorial management (e.g., working on a college newspaper) is optional but a plus.

TO APPLY:

Please submit your resume, cover letter, and a writing sample.
