Journalism: Girls Life Magazine

Wanna be a GL intern? Read on!

Girls’ Life magazine provides internship opportunities for students interested in learning about and working in magazine publishing. Whether you’re seeking course credits or looking for personal enrichment, growth and experience, Girls’ Life offers a unique way for students to get a first-hand glimpse into publishing.

• Two or three college students per semester, including summers. Shorter opportunities are available for girls 12 and up.
• You must be an organized, self-motivated, resourceful, upbeat student who’s into everything GL (that’s friends, fashion, celebs, beauty and real-life issues).
• Mass Communication, English, and Journalism majors preferred.
• Computer proficiency (we like Mac) and some office experience are required (ya know, copying and faxing). Experience with Quark and Microsoft Word a plus!

Duties vary depending on experience and skill-level, but standard responsibilities include:

• Writing. Interns contribute features, short articles, quizzes, reviews, columns and celebrity profiles for our website and magazine.
• Providing editorial support. Interns attend editorial meetings; assist editors; research and fact-check stories; work with publicists; and check proofs.
• Providing administrative support. Interns sort and respond to reader letters and emails; organize and mail out giveaways; file issue materials; fax documents; and take on anything and everything else vital to the running of the magazine!

Please contact us three months prior to preferred start of internship. Typically, interns work two to three days per week. Our internship positions are flexible, and we are able to work around school schedules.

Our offices are located in Baltimore, Maryland. Don’t live in or around Baltimore? Check out www.mediabistro.com and www.ed2010.com for great “How to Get an Internship” info and internship listings in other areas.

E-mail us a cover letter that tells us why you’d make the PERFECT GL intern. Also helpful? A current resume and any writing samples. Send everything to our intern coordinator, Brooke Balderson, or fax them to her attention at 410-254-0991. If we have an opening, we will contact you to set up an interview.

We’re impressed if you familiarize yourself with our magazine’s content and target audience before applying.
