We’re now accepting applications for our Fall 2019 internships, our 21st internship class here at Untapped Cities. We’re looking for some bright, motivated writers and photographers to join the team as interns. Our interns get to do it all: writing published articles from day one, managing their own columns, exploring the city, and covering events. As an Untapped Cities intern, you can learn how a web magazine really works, pitch your own ideas, have an article published within your first week, and, of course, re-discover the city you love. Our offices are located in Brooklyn.
Editorial Internship: The editorial interns will work directly with Untapped Cities’ Founder and its Managing Editor on determining the publication schedule, proposing new articles, and writing articles. Our editorial interns work on a full range of pieces from features, news articles, to list articles. As an editorial intern, you will also gain experience with writing for search engine optimization and using social media to promote your own work and the work of the site. You don’t need to be a journalism major, as long as you’re a strong writer and can come ready with ideas for content.
Photography Internship: Photography interns work on assignment across all of our businesses: editorial, tours and memberships. You will be out and about in the city documenting events, press walkthroughs, doing street photography, and more.
Communications/Social Media Internship: The communications/social media intern work on a rollout plan for the development and marketing of new experiences for both Untapped Cities Tours and Untapped Cities Insiders. The intern will activate our social media channels, including Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter with goals of increasing engagement, followers and balancing the multiple objectives of the company. The intern will also manage the company’s customer service channels.
