Business Insider Is Hiring An Intern Who Wants To Learn How To Edit




Business Insider is looking for an awesome paid intern to join our fast-growing Contributors team immediately.

The ideal candidate, above all, is interested in editing, copy editing, packaging, story selection, and is a voracious consumer of news on the web, with a whole roster of interesting blogs and Twitter feeds they follow.

Among other things, this intern's responsibilities would be to:

  • Review and edit contributor stories and rewrite headlines to fit Business Insider style (snappier, more provocative)
  • Become familiar with verticals and search for potential contributors
  • Be comfortable with production work and quick turnaround for inputting new stories and slide shows

Think of it as a crash course in digital journalism -- a great opportunity to learn about aggregation, editing, curation, and the ins and outs of navigating a CMS. And, as a bonus, you'd get to write a bit on the side.

If interested, please send your resume and cover letter to

Please note that this internship is full-time (40 hours a week) out of our Manhattan headquarters.
