Music industry magazine Billboard, its consumer site Billboard.com, and its business site Billboard.biz are seeking interns for winter/spring 2013.
Under the guidance of editors, interns are responsible for researching editorial packages, assisting with online production and transcription.
Interns have the opportunity to write and report news, interview artists, review albums, etc. This is not a coffee-fetching internship.
Interns are expected to work 2-5 days a week in our NYC offices. This is an unpaid position, so college credit is required. Length of internship and start date are flexible, but please specify availability in your email.
Applicants MUST have published experience writing on the topics of music/music industry, as well as an awareness of what’s happening on our charts. Fluency in HTML is a MAJOR plus.
Send cover letter (in email body), resume and writing samples (links) to firstname.lastname@example.org. Applications are considered on a rolling basis.
After many months of scheming, we’re positively giddy to launch the official Billboard Tumblr. We’ll point you in the direction of the features over on our fan-focused site Billboard.com - as well as to selected content from our music industry-focused print magazine - but you can also expect an inside look into the Billboard world.
And where would Billboard be without our world-famous chart info? We’ll have chart-tastic trivia and tidbits from our 117 years of print archives. Also expect: music-related content that catches our eye on the dashboard; Billboard may be new ‘round these parts, but we know that reblogs are what Tumblr is all about.
In case you were wondering, this Tumblr is maintained by Billboard.com writer/editor Jillian Mapes, who’s been Tumbling on her personal account for a few years. Our custom theme was designed by Simon Fletcher of BakedCode.
