Savvy Auntie

by on January 14, 2009

Audible Logo

Sorry for the delayed post today. For some reason the Internet connection in our office wouldn’t connect to our server, which meant that we couldn’t publish today’s post this morning. I trudged across town through the snow in 12 degree weather to make sure that you got your internships today.

Niche communities have always been a big part of what the Internet is all about. In the olden days if you lived in a small town and had eclectic interests, you’d have a really tough time meeting people with the same interests. Those days are over. Now you can find an online community for anything – anything. Although today’s company isn’t all that odd in the market that they target, they’re certainly focusing on a group that has been forgotten until now. Savvy Auntie is “the first community for cool aunts, great aunts, godmothers, and all women who love kids.” We’re not sure whether they’ve sided on the pronunciation “ant” or “awnt,” but either way they’ve decided to own the market for enthusiastic aunts.

Interns Are Like Nieces and Nephews…

In a lot of ways having an internship is like having a savvy auntie. If you want to have both, then you’re in luck. Savvy Auntie is currently looking for a number of interns. They have internships available in Video Production, Content, Gifts, and Community. The internships are unpaid, require 10-20 hours of work per week, and are located somewhere in New York/Northern New Jersey (they don’t make it very clear). They also require that their interns own a laptop. There isn’t a whole lot of information available on these internships; however, you can check out the profiles of Savvy Auntie’s current interns. If you think it would be cool to work with a former Fortune 500 executive to build a community of savvy aunts, then send a cover letter and resume to If you’re apply for the Content internship, be sure to include 3 writing samples.

Do you think a community for aunts and other women who love children is a sustainable business idea?

Pitchfork Logo

I think that I’ve told you before that I don’t listen to a lot of music, and I stopped reading about music a long time ago. That means that I’m not very familiar with Pitchfork, but from what I hear, they’re a “a Chicago-based daily Internet publication devoted to music criticism and commentary, music news, and artist interviews.” That came from Wikipedia, because Pitchfork has somehow forgotten to include an About page on their site. Ok, so Pitchfork isn’t just about music. It’s about indie music – mostly indie rock but also “electronic, pop, hip hop, dance, folk, jazz, metal, and experimental music.” Beyond the daily e-zine that they publish, Pitchfork has also recently launched, their take on online tv.

Page Six Magazine

Page Six Magazine Logo

I hate gossip mags. I really do, but I know that there are a ton of you out there who love them – whether you’re willing to admit it publicly or not. You’re fascinated by the sordid details of other people’s lives, and you can’t get enough. If you’re from the New York area, you’re probably familiar with The New York Post’s Page Six (the gossip page) and Page Six Magazine. Page Six Magazine is full of gossip, but it also covers much more pleasant things like Fashion & Beauty, Lifestyle, and, my favorite, Food. Page Six Magazine is currently looking for some interns, so if you love what they do, keep reading. And for those of you who hate gossip like me, check out internships at Space Camp – they’re out of this world! (I’m ashamed that I just typed that.)

The Nonprofit Quarterly

by on November 8, 2008

The Nonprofit Quarterly Logo

I’m intrigued by the idea of non-profits for non-profits. Whether we’re talking about a major Fortune 500 corporation or a tiny 2 person non-profit, every organization relies on other organizations to achieve its mission. Nobody can do everything in-house, so it makes sense that some non-profit organizations exist solely to help other non-profits. The Nonprofit Quarterly may not provide a service that other non-profits rely on, but they do provide information that informs non-profit leaders how to act more effectively. Or as The Nonprofit Quarterly puts it, they “promote spirited nonprofit management.” They also differ with us on whether the word “non-profit” should be hyphenated. If you’re looking to get a better sense of what kind of content The Nonprofit Quarterly provides, check out the home page to see some of their recent articles.

Rodale Logo

Considering that college is a time when you’re supposed to be working towards having a productive adulthood, a whole lot of self-destruction seems to be going on. It must be hard for the health nuts to fit in. If you prefer 8 glasses of water a day to keg stands, celery sticks to buffalo wings, and the Nintendo Wii to the Xbox, then you’ll be a lot more comfortable in an internship at Rodale than you will be at a frat party. Rodale is a “global media company with a heritage, mission, and authority dedicated to the health and wellness of the individual, community, and planet.” They publish magazines such as Men’s Health, Women’s Health, Organic Gardening, Prevention, and Runner’s World. They’re also the largest independent book publisher in the U.S.

The Onion

The Onion Logo

Happy Election Day! I’m not going to urge you to vote like most other people will, because yesterday I learned that “It’s more likely that you will be killed driving to the polling booth than it is that your vote will change the outcome.” That’d be a lot to have on my conscience, so I’m going to say vote at your own risk. If you’re upset that I’m making a mockery of the political system, then today’s company isn’t for you. That’s because we’re talking about The Onion and their internships. I can’t think of a more fitting company for election day (except for maybe Diebold, but they’re not nearly as much fun) than The Onion because politics and satire go hand in hand. Without politics satire is hamstrung, and without satire politics is utterly painful. The Onion is not only “America’s finest news source,” but also “the funniest publication in the US” according to the New Yorker.

Sesame Workshop Logo

Sunny day… Sweepin’ the clouds away… On my way to where the air is sweet… Can you tell me how to get… How to get an internship at Sesame Street? Sesame Workshop is “a nonprofit educational organization making a meaningful difference in the lives of children worldwide by addressing their critical developmental needs.” How do they do that? By producing Sesame Street, of course. You may not realize how much work and research has gone into making Sesame Street the educational powerhouse that it is. They have a well defined process that is the key to consistently addressing educational needs.

Best Week Ever

Best Week Ever Logo

From Wikipedia: “In its recounting of the events of the past week, Best Week Ever has been seen as a sign of the short attention span of millions of Americans.” I would have waited longer to include that tidbit in this post, but I figured that since I’m targeting people with short attention spans today, I better cut to the chase. Best Week Ever is a VH1 television show that is on every Friday at 11 PM, but it’s also a blog. Both the show and the blog are filled with comedic takes on the latest gossip and pop culture. Are you still with me? Just making sure. If you’ve seen I Love the 80s, you’ll be familiar with the format of the television show, and if you want to know more about the blog, well check out

Washingtonpost.Newsweek Interactive Logo

Newspapers are dying. If you’re a college student, there’s a good chance that the only newspaper that you ever read a physical copy of is your campus’ daily. When you graduate, you probably won’t subscribe to a newspaper. Everything is moving online, and the industry is suffering financially because of it. With all of this change, there’s also a lot of opportunity. Interning in a traditional newsroom can offer some amazing learning opportunities, but the future is working in an interactive newsroom. Washingtonpost.Newsweek Interactive is the digital arm of The Washington Post (and we think that it may eventually be the only arm). WPNI consists of,, Slate,, Girlfriends Getaways, Sprig, The Root, The Big Money, Loudoun, and Ad Specs and they are looking for a ridiculous number of interns.

Seventeen Logo

Despite the fact that I may have been seventeen years old at one time, I have never read Seventeen. Ok, I may have looked at an issue or two, but just to figure out what the heck was going on inside the heads of teenage girls. I always thought that Seventeen was a funny name for the magazine, because it seems like it’s not actually intended for girls who are or have been seventeen, but instead for girls who want to be seventeen (the secret is that all you have to do is stay alive, and you’ll get there). Anyway, you probably know the magazine, and if you don’t, go pick up a copy and check it out. I’m not going to pretend that I know enough to tell you much more about the magazine.

Brant Publications

by on September 30, 2008

It’s not too uncommon for us to have trouble scrounging up details about a company’s internships despite the fact that we know that they have them; however, today’s situation is pretty unusual. We’re having no trouble finding information on internships with Brant Publications, but we’re having a heck of a time gathering information about the actual company. It’s not that they’re some stealth stage startup or a small boutique firm that nobody has ever heard of. They are the publisher of three well known magazines – The Magazine Antiques, Interview, and Art in America, but they don’t have a corporate website (or logo). Apparently, they do have a dress code, though. Despite the lack of publicly available information about Brant Publications online, we still think that their internships look pretty cool. If you’re dying to work in publishing or around the arts, you’ll probably be pretty excited about the internship opportunities that you’ll find below.

Internships at the Mystery Company

Brant Publications is currently looking to fill internships in Office Services, Human Resources, Advertising (Art in America), Advertising (The Magazine Antiques), Advertising (Interview Magazine), Art (Interview Magazine), Editorial (Interview Magazine), Editorial (The Magazine Antiques), Mailroom, Accounting, Fashion, and Production. All of the internships are located in New York City, and many have multiple openings. The job descriptions for each internship are pretty sparse, but the job titles are specific enough that you should get some idea of what they’ll expect you to be doing. The internship listings don’t say so explicitly, but we get the vibe that these are unpaid internships. You can apply online through the Magazine Publishers of America website where the links above will lead you. It’s not completely clear whether these are Fall, Spring, or Summer internships, but it seems that Brant hires a lot of interns, and probably does so year round.

Fast Company

Fast Company Logo

We often mention it when companies that we feature receive accolades or press from top business magazines. One of the publications that we often look to for a nod of credibility as a great internship employer is Fast Company, and today we’re going to look at some of their internship offerings. If you’re not familiar with Fast Company, it’s both a magazine and an online social/content network. They’re business focused and typically report on “innovation, digital media, technology, change management, leadership, design and social responsibility” (from Wikipedia). Fast Company is definitely one of the “cooler” business publications that you’ll come across.

PRWeek Logo

Working on the front lines seems to be the ideal for an internship. You want to get immersed in the industry that you hope to be working in after you graduate. For instance, if you’re studying public relations and want to work in public relations, then it seems like a good idea to get an internship doing public relations. There’s another option that can give you exposure to almost any industry, but it doesn’t include every day work in the field. You can intern with a trade publication that covers your industry of interest. Take PRWeek, for example. They’re currently looking for a Fall intern. The internship won’t put you on the front lines at a PR agency, but it will provide an immersion in the PR industry that you probably won’t get anywhere else.

Gawker Media

Gawker Media Logo

Yesterday we featured Transworld and their 6 publications. It was a bit hard to dig up specific internship information for each magazine, but we had fun, so we’re going to do it again. Today we’re going to look at Gawker Media and their network of 12 blogs. In case you’re not familiar with the Gawker network, here’s what it consists of Defamer (L.A. Gossip), io9 (Science Fiction), Valleywag (Silicon Valley Gossip), Deadspin (Sports), Jezebel (Celebrity, Sex, Fashion), The Consumerist (Consumer’s Rights), Jalopnik (Cars), Gawker (Manhattan Gossip), Kotaku (Video Games), Lifehacker (Productivity), Gizmodo (Gadgets), Fleshbot (Adult, no link – you can find that one on your own). It’s an impressive network of sites, some trashy, and some insanely useful. Gawker Media’s network has been identified as being the most valuable blog with some estimates of a $150 million valuation.

Transworld Logo

Are you constantly bruised, scraped, and loaded with adrenaline? If so, it’s pretty likely that you’re a reader of one of Transworld’s magazines – Surf, Skateboarding, Snowboarding, RIDEbmx, Motocross, Quad Off-Road, or Business when you’re taking some time to heal up before your next extreme adventure. Transworld has readership of over 4 million across these titles, which is surprising since you’d think most action sports enthusiasts would be too busy trying to break their next bone to sit down and read a magazine. With 7 great titles and a strong online presence, Transworld is a major player in extreme sports media. They don’t have a unified internship program, but we’ve done some research to try to identify what kind of internships you might be able to snag with each of their magazines.

Marvel Enterprises

Marvel Logo

Are you a superhero whose alter ego happens to be looking for an internship? Just for cover, of course, because superheroes don’t actually need to work. You’ve managed to keep it quiet through a couple years of college, but you need something to do between classes besides beating up villains and saving the world. Why not intern at the last place that they’d ever expect you to work – Marvel Enterprises. It’s so obvious that it’s completely unobvious. In all seriousness if you’re not familiar with Marvel, they’re “one of the world’s most prominent character-based entertainment companies.” They made their name in comic books, but they’ve expanded into tv, movies, toys, video games, and more.

VIZ Media

Viz Media Logo

We Americans seem to love picking up on Japanese culture and making it part of our own popular culture. Karate, sushi, and video games are excellent examples of things that we’ve adapted in our own way into our everyday lives. Manga and anime haven’t quite had such wide adoption (except for Pokemon), but there seems to be a large group of fanatics who are absolutely obsessed with Japanese animation and graphic novels. Today’s internships are for those people. VIZ Media, owned by three of Japan’s largest creators and licensors of manga and animation, is “a leader in the publishing and distribution of Japanese manga for English speaking audiences.” When it comes to publishing, animation, and entertainment licensing of Japanese content, VIZ Media is the company. They publish magazines and graphic novels, produce DVDs, and develop, market, license, and distribute animated entertainment for those of us who consider Japanese a foreign language.

Daily Candy Logo

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.

We just found two really great websites. The first is, whose internships we are going to talk about today. The second is Ed 2010 which guided us to CollegeCandy’s internships. It’s “a community of young magazine editors and magazine-editor wannabes who want to learn more about the industry so we can fulfill our dreams of landing top editing and writing positions in the the magazine industry” (Ed: someone really needs to edit that description from their About page). Anyway, CollegeCandy is “a website written for college women, by college women,” which may seem like it precludes guys from interning with them, but who knows?

They have all kinds of internships, from the typical business areas to opportunities with specific shows. They make it a bit hard to find out how to apply, so that’s what we’re going to focus on today.

Since we had so much fun writing about internships for the literary minded yesterday, we’re going to do it again today. If you are a book lover, the type who entered his or her college’s book collection contest – the type who has a multi-page Amazon wishlist (yes, I linked to mine so you can buy me a gift), then an internship in publishing is quite possibly a dream come true. Penguin Group offers internships year round, but they make the information about their internships a bit hard to find. We’ve dug up all we can find, so that you don’t have to wander around their site looking for information on how to apply.

Are you a news junkie? Do you write for your college newspaper? Have a radio show on your college station? Upload your own videos to YouTube? Whether you want to be behind the camera, in front of the camera, or in the editing room, CNN offers an excellent internship program that will get you familiar with working in television and the news. If you want to pursue a career in broadcast journalism, CNN is the place to start. The variety of internships that they offer provide phenomenal opportunities for hands-on experience and training.

Mad Magazine Logo

One year, my cousin gave me a subscription to MAD Magazine for my birthday. I had never read an issue before, but I definitely recognized their icon Alfred E. Neuman. I didn’t think that I’d get that into it, but every month I’d look forward to getting the latest issue in the mail. Most of the jokes probably went over my head, because I was about 12 years old at the time, but I’d sit there and read and laugh. The only way you’re going to understand what MAD is all about is to pick up an issue, so head out to your nearest magazine rack and get one if you’d like to put your sense of humor to work this summer.

We continue to be impressed with Twitter. We were scanning for internships when we came across Rebecca Corliss’ tweet about last-minute PR internships. She’s a soon to be/recent graduate from Boston University who interned with the Ictus Initiative and loved the experience so much that she went to work with them part-time as a publicist. Her rave reviews convinced us to share these internships, which are located in Boston, MA, with you as quickly as we possibly could.

First of all, apologies to our e-mail subscribers. For some reason yesterday’s post didn’t get sent, but it should have been included with today’s post. Hopefully it won’t happen again. As for internships, it’s getting harder every day to find quality opportunities to write about, but we’re planning sticking with posting about opportunities for this Summer for at least a few more weeks. Even if you’re a bit desperate for an internship, you should try to find something that will actually be worth your while. Don’t just get an internship for the sake of getting an internship. If you’re interested in media, make sure that your internship has something to do with the Internet. A company like CNET Networks is perfect, because they have a proven track record, but they’re still a new media company.

Have you ever heard of Daily Candy? The girls are probably nodding their heads yes, and the boys are probably shaking their heads no. Well, Daily Candy is a daily e-mail list “from the front lines of fashion, food, and fun.” We’ve always wanted to write about their internships, but unfortunately we’ve never seen any listed (and we’re always watching). Thrillist is the manly man’s version of Daily Candy. You’ve already learned that it’s a lot easier to have someone find cool stuff for you – whether it be internships, restaurants, or clothes – than to look for yourself. That’s why companies like Thrillist and Daily Candy are thriving.
