Ottawa Job of the Day: Editorial Internships with Ottawa Magazine

The Ottawa office of St. Joseph Media, which publishes Ottawa Magazine (a city magazine) and Where Ottawa Magazine (a tourism magazine), is now accepting unpaid internship applications from university or college graduates for November/December 2012 and January 2013.

Editorial interns are involved in many aspects of production of the magazines. They receive hands-on experience researching, interviewing, fact-checking, proof reading, and writing for print and/or web. Each intern works closely with the editors and is encouraged to generate ideas for the magazines/websites. An interest in, and enthusiasm for, Ottawa and its people, events, and culture are a must. Candidates should also have excellent oral and written communication skills, be extremely creative, highly organized, and incredibly attentive to detail.

We are also looking for two interns for two- or three-day internships (9 a.m. to 5 p.m.) for January/February 2013.

These internships are unpaid, however they offer new graduates the opportunity to see what the magazine industry in Ottawa is like and the work that goes into publishing magazines. They will work on magazine issues at their various stages and also get opportunities to write and get clippings (print and/or online) to add to their portfolios.
