By this point in the fall semester, most college students are already situated in their fall internships and probably have their weekly routine down. But our parent company, b5 media, is looking for some college students to help with some new business development and social media initiatives, and these positions just can’t wait until the spring.
So if you (or someone you know) put off applying to an internship this semester, found you have a little bit of extra time in your schedule or just want to squeeze in a little more experience by working for an online media company, we might have the perfect opportunity for you. Or, at the very least, you can see how weird we all are in person.
B5 media is the publisher of not just The Gloss but our sister sites, Crushable and Blisstree. Our New York offices include editorial teams for all three sites as well as sales, marketing and business development departments. There’s lots of work that goes into producing three sites beyond the writing, reporting and editing you see here everyday, and if you’re interested in things like social media, e-commerce and sales, there’s so much opportunity to learn firsthand and see how a web start-up works. Plus, you don’t have to wear suits and you might just score a free product or an invite to a fun party or event every now and then.
We’re looking for interns to work specifically with the business development and marketing team, where you’ll work all day on Twitter and Facebook. The time commitment is minimal: just one or two days a week, for 6 to 10 hours per week. Our internships are unpaid, but we can offer class credit.
