There are some websites that I never intentionally visit, but I always end up visiting anyway. Links to their articles just pop up all over the place–Facebook, Twitter, Google, and even e-mails from friends. Business Insider is one of those sites. I’m not typically a huge fan of their content (maybe because they published an “article” that was derived completely from comments on our post about Bridgewater Associates), but they’re certainly prolific. They cover a wide range of verticals, which makes them a good source for students who want to stay current on news and events in a particular industry. Business Insider is based in New York, NY and was founded in 2007, and since then they’ve been able to drive a ton of traffic. That traffic has helped put Business Insider at #354 on the Inc. 500 with 1,055% three-year growth and $7.7 million in revenue.

Be an Insider

Business Insider describes itself as “dedicated to aggregating, reporting, and analyzing the top news stories across the web and delivering them to you at rapid-fire pace.” From what I’ve seen, they go pretty heavy on the aggregating and much lighter on the analysis. It’s a good place to go for a quick look at what’s happening, and they do a great job of making information super digestible (they love lists and slideshows). Spend 5 minutes on their site, and you should get a really good feel for their approach to journalism. If you like what you see, then you’ll want to take a look at Business Insider’s Careers page. It’s a little odd in that they use the same content management system for posting jobs that they use for posting articles, so it’s completely unclear which positions have been filled. Some of the more recent internship postings include paid Science Intern and paid Editorial/Analyst Intern. It’s kind of cool that you can see all of Business Insider’s past internship postings, but it’s hard to know which positions are worth applying for.
