The Jane Dough Is Looking For An Intern
12:45 pm, December 6th | by The Jane Dough
Like what you’ve seen so far on The Jane Dough? If you’re a current college or graduate student, consider joining us in our offices in SoHo as a Spring 2012 intern.
We’ll ask you to scour the web, the airwaves, and the pages of print publications for striking and original stories that highlight and raise questions about women in business, or business through the female prism.
In exchange, we promise the chance to earn bylines and the sense of a job well done. And not to make you get us coffee.
The internship begins in January; start and end dates are flexible. We’ll expect you to be on board 2-3 days a week, so a close proximity to NYC is preferable, though not absolutely required. Yes, you do have to be a current student. We can also help you out with college credit if you’re interested.
The main qualification for this internship is an interest and some strong opinions about the intersection of women and business. Do you devour Forbes‘ list of the most powerful women, but wonder why more ladies aren’t featured on Forbes “regular” most powerful lists? Are you ticked off by the fact that more women aren’t founding as many tech startups and aren’t making as money much on Wall Street? Would you like to opine on the latest words uttered by Arianna Huffington, Sheryl Sandberg or Indra Nooyi? Sounds like you’ll fit right in.
Please email the following to firstname.lastname@example.org:
– A resume/CV, including references
– Any two samples of your academic or journalistic writing, each preferably in a different style (long-form vs. short-form, magazine vs. blog, etc.)
– A brief (one-page) cover letter explaining why your experience, knowledge, and personality make you the ideal intern for our site.
2012 is right around the corner, so get yours in ASAP!
