Writers and photographers: You don’t have to be a journalist or professional photographer. Our contributors are residents, experts, tourists, students, and anybody who loves cities. Contact us if you’re interested in contributing as little as one article or becoming a columnist or city correspondent.
Are you interested in how it all comes together? Journalism, photography, social media, advertising, web design, business development? You’ll also get exclusive access to events we host and cover.
We’ve welcomed over 20 internship classes here at Untapped Cities and we’re looking for some bright, motivated students to join the team. 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. If you go to school in New York City or if you’re just looking for journalism experience, we’re currently accepting applications to join our internship class!
Editorial Internship: The editorial interns will work directly with Untapped Cities’ Founder and Managing Editor on determining the publication schedule, proposing new articles, and writing their 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.
Events Internship: The event planning internship will take the lead on planning and executing the popular Untapped Cities tour series and Untapped Cities Insiders membership program featuring off-limits tours to New York City locations, contributor and reader happy hours, and talks.
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.
All internships are for school-credit only.
