FOX CITIES Magazine offers internships in our editorial department, providing students with experience in the day-to-day operations of a monthly publication and up-to-the-minute digital channels. Balancing a variety of responsibilities, intern duties run the gamut from completing writing assignments to updating the many facets of foxcitiesmagazine.com.
Interns attend events, interview local leaders, write blog posts and craft meaningful stories about life in the Fox Cities. Interns do not fetch coffee. There are ample writing opportunities available on topics such as the local arts scene, dining trends, home, health and personality profiles.
We are dedicated to equipping editorial interns with real-life experience. It matters to us that they leave our company with knowledge to assist them in their future career endeavors.
Besides the colleges and universities close to home, we look to other institutions around the state and consider applicants of all backgrounds and degrees. We do not discriminate based on race and sex. We are drawn to dedicated and unique personalities, which complement our fast-paced, demanding industry. We offer flexible scheduling within the 9-5 timeframe. Interns are expected to commit to roughly 8-10 hours per week. The internship is unpaid, but students can choose to pursue college credit as an option.
