Untapped Cities is a community of over 600 contributors uncovering the best of urban life from cities around the globe. We have many exciting opportunities to get involved.
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, blogging, photography, app development, social media, advertising, web design, business development? You’ll also get exclusive access to events we host and cover.
This summer, we’ll be welcoming our 18th internship class here at Untapped Cities and we’re looking for some bright, motivated writers 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 Summer 2018 class of interns in New York City.
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 own regular column. Our editorial interns work on a full range of pieces from features, news articles, to roundups. 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.
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.
Social Media Internship: The social media 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.
All internships are for school-credit only.
