My Time Magazine offers a comprehensive internship program for college and graduate students. (We are unable to accept interns who have already completed undergrad unless they are currently enrolled in graduate school.) You must be able to receive college credit for the internship in order to be eligible. Internships require approximately fifteen hours of work per week; these hours may be distributed across days of the intern’s choosing, but they must be completed during the magazine’s office hours of 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m.Positions are unpaid but offer invaluable experience in all aspects of magazine journalism.
Applicants must select one of the following areas of focus, plus one optional backup:
Editorial internship: Interns are responsible for fact-checking, proofreading, research, and occasional writing for the print magazine and website. Candidates should exhibit strong grammar and writing skills and have previous professional experience (preferably at a newspaper/magazine). A major in journalism or English is preferred.
News internship: News interns will get an up-close look at reporting on—and writing about—local and statewide issues including politics, social justice, and the occasional interstate highway collapse for atlantamagazine.com. In addition to reporting and writing, interns will conduct research, generate ideas, and help produce longer stories. Experience reporting on government and government departments is a plus but not required.
Digital internship: Interns will gain hands-on experience producing content for atlantamagazine.com. Responsibilities include uploading stories from the magazine, building email newsletters, and pitching and writing stories for the website. Candidates should exhibit strong writing skills and a basic knowledge of HTML; experience in WordPress is strongly encouraged; courses in digital journalism a plus. Note: We are currently not accepting applications for digital interns at this time.
Dining internship: The dining internship is an exceptional opportunity to explore the city’s culinary roots and report on local restaurants, events, and chefs. The intern will write and report stories for dining section of the magazine’s website. The successful candidate will have prior publishing experience, strong writing and reporting skills, the ability to generate fresh story ideas, and of course, a passion for food!
Marketing internship: Interns have the opportunity to learn the many different facets of magazine publishing, including production, sales, marketing, public relations, event and database development, accounting, and business planning. They assist in creating and executing communications and marketing strategies, researching and coordinating mailings, updating website listings, and coordinating special events.
