Check out the latest internship postings from DailyCandy.

We’re really excited to be telling you about internships with DailyCandy today! They happen to have awesome copywriters, so we’re going to use some copy from the DailyCandy Media Kit to tell you what they’re all about.

DailyCandy, a free, daily e-mail newsletter and website, is the insider’s guide to what’s hot, new, and undiscovered — from fashion and style to gadgets, travel, beauty, and more. As useful as it is entertaining, it’s like getting an e-mail from your clever, unpredictable, and totally in-the-know best friend. The one who knows about secret beauty treatments, must-have jeans, hot new restaurants — and always shares the scoop. DailyCandy is the creation of journalist Dany Levy, who, in 2000, found herself frustrated by the limits of magazine lead times. She developed a new, immediate way to share information while it was still fresh and actionable with an affluent, influential female audience.

DailyCandy is Sweet for Marketers Too

DailyCandy is not only an amazing resource for savvy women, it’s also a marketer’s dream come true. DailyCandy has 2.6 million e-mail subscribers, and the majority of those subscribers come from a very valuable demographic. Here are some stats on their subscribers: 95% are female, 64% are under 35, 92% have at least a college degree, and the median household income is $75,000. Even more impressive is that 96% of DailyCandy subscribers read their e-mails every day or almost every day, 63% forward articles to friends, and 66% bought something that they read about in DailyCandy. Those are some amazing numbers, and they have a lot to do with why Comcast has apparently shelled out $125 million for DailyCandy.

We won’t deny it, DailyCandy is our role model. What they’ve done with Fashion, Beauty & Fitness, Lifestyle, House & Home, Food & Drink, Travel, and Arts & Culture is what we are trying to do with internships (and entry-level jobs at One Day, One Job). No, we don’t think that we’ll sell for $125 million, but we’re in love with their business model.

If You Like Our Daily Internships, You’ll Love Interning at DailyCandy

Back in April we got an e-mail from someone at DailyCandy telling us that they were looking for Summer interns and asking us to post about them. We got all excited, since we had been waiting to post about DailyCandy for months. Unfortunately, by the time we were able to ask for more details about the internships, they were filled. Late last week, we got another e-mail, this time about Fall internships. As far as we know, these internships aren’t posted anywhere else on the internet – not even on DailyCandy’s Jobs page, so you’re getting an exclusive here. Here’s the note I got straight from DailyCandy:

DailyCandy’s NYC office is looking for Fall editorial interns to assist with fact checking and administrative duties. The unpaid positions start immediately. Preference will be given to applicants who can work at least three days a week. Send two hundred (clever) words about why you’d be an awesome intern to internships@dailycandy.com.

I think that about says it all. If you’re quick enough in replying with a clever two hundred words, you may be able to start in time for NYC Fashion Week. That would possibly provide the opportunity to attend a show, and write about it for DailyCandy’s Fashion Week Dossier. We also hear that DailyCandy is a fun place to work and that their interns usually love their time at DC.

We really want to impress the people at DailyCandy, so be sure to be extra clever in your 200 words. Also, share this post with any friends who you think would make a great DailyCandy intern.
