Job Opportunity at One of My Fave Magazines

Lots of job listings here lately…maybe it’s all the stress about the collapsing economy! Okay—so this one at the Oxford American doesn’t pay, but it’s an AMAZING magazine and I’m sure you’ll gain valuable experience leading to big bucks down the road in the editorial biz:

I originally read the ad in the magazine, so tell them that when you apply (anyway, you should be reading the magazine). But here’s the info off the website:

If you are enthusiastic about learning any facet of the magazine business, including editing and writing (and other specialized areas like ad sales, graphic design, or publicity), please consider applying for an internship at The Oxford American.

No previous experience necessary. We offer year-round programs that can accommodate most schedules. (The minimum internship lasts three months in the summer and five to six months during the rest of the year.) The job is full time and non-paying.

The Oxford American internship program provides some flexibility for internship starting dates, but most applicants prefer to start their internship periods in January, mid-May, or mid-August. We encourage potential interns to submit their applications according to the following deadlines:

March 20 (for internships starting around mid-May)
August 1 (for internships starting around mid-August)
November 10 (for internships starting in January)

Send applications to:

Conway, AR 72035

Or e-mail: oamag@oxfordamericanmag.com

Oxford American interns are thoroughly trained and given many responsibilities. On leaving OA headquarters our interns are ready to conquer the world. READ MORE ABOUT INTERNSHIPS
