If you’re a recent journalism or media graduate looking to get a foothold in the media world, then this could be the opportunity for you. vipmagazine.ie‘s recently-launched website requires a bright, motivated intern to work along the web editorial team.
It’s ESSENTIAL that you love and have a great knowledge of Irish celebrities, as your main task will be writing daily news stories on all our homegrown stars. You will also have a strong interest in fashion, beauty and lifestyle topics.
You’ll be absolutely full of ideas, and having a news ‘nose’ is a must: you’re that person who loves to know about news first, you’re crazy about social media, and you’ve got great attention to detail.
What you’ll learn
This isn’t just about what you can do for us. Working alongside VIP Magazine, the internship will be a learning role where you’ll have an opportunity to make contacts, meet people who’ll be of benefit to you in your future career and gain skills and knowledge in the emerging digital media field. You’ll learn how to research and write stories that gain interest and traction online, understand web analytics and learn how to use social tools to drive traffic and engage audiences.
Here’s how to apply:
- Send your up-to-date CV to email@example.com.
- Attach three writing samples, showcasing how you’d write for VIP and what stories you would choose to feature on the site. These would need to be 200-300 words, tailored for a category or topic that the site covers.
- And a link to your blog or tumblr (if you have one)
