Nationwide (BlackNews.com) — The deadline is fast approaching for students to apply for the Essence Magazine Summer Internship program. Every year, Essence Communications Inc.hosts summer interns through the Time Inc. Summer Internship Program. The program is a 9-week paid learning experience where students will receive on-the-job training that will enhance their education and prepare them for a future career in the media industry.
Applicants must have an interest in media and issues related to African-American women to intern at ESSENCE magazine. They are looking for students who are diligent, self-motivated and extremely detail-oriented to take on various opportunities throughout departments in both the Publishing and Editorial divisions.
Interns will receive a bi-weekly stipend, will be assigned to one department but will be exposed to other areas of the company, and are expected to find their own housing. It is suggested that they contact their school’s career center for information on temporary housing in the New York City area. They can contact New York City area colleges and universities to ask about renting a dormitory room for the summer.
The deadline to apply is January 31, 2014, and only one application per person will be considered.
