Wheel Barrow Job Alert

Are you a college student or freelancer longing to get your foot in the door at an equine publication?  Sometimes, internships are the way to go.  You may not get paid, but you network valuable connections while learning the craft while making friends with many people in the same industry - often more valuable than pay.  Horse & Rider Magazine is looking for summer interns...

Horse&Rider Summer Internship Opportunity
Does working on the leading Western horse magazine (that’s also part of the largest group of equine publications), while living at the base of the gorgeous Colorado Rockies sum up how you’d like to spend your summer? If so, maybe the Horse&Rider summer internship is for you.
Our candidate is someone who:
  • Is a junior or senior in college, majoring in a related field
  • Can relocate to or currently lives in the Denver/Boulder Metro area
  • Has a solid writing background and a good handle on AP Style
  • Energizes their peers with their can-do attitude
  • Is open to all job-related tasks—both glamorous and tedious
  • Wants to help celebrate our 50th anniversary and learn about the magazine’s history, as well as that of the entire horse industry
  • Enjoys working on social media and is interested in learning how to use it to promote a brand
  • Has a strong working knowledge of Mac- and PC-based operating systems
  • Has interest in photography/design
  • Is deadline-driven, focused, and dedicated
  • Will join the team, ready to jump into the fire
  • Shares our passion for horses
It’s an unpaid internship, but we’ll make up for that with:
  • Byline opportunities—you’ll have the chance to write for various departments of the magazine, and possibly do more, depending on your skill level
  • Exposure to the exciting, evolving activity surrounding a pillar of the equine publishing industry
  • Experience with the innovative, vibrant culture of the largest group of equine magazines in the business (The Equine Network/Active Interest Media)
  • The opportunity to work with some of the best-known, most respected editors in the business, who really know their stuff, as well as editors working their way up the ranks and an award-winning art director
  • A chance to live in a gorgeous setting, with summer temps that average 72 degrees, that also has an active horse community
If this sounds like an opportunity you can’t pass up, please send your cover letter, résumé, and writing samples (if available) to jpaulson@aimmedia.com by March 30, 2011. The internship’s dates are flexible, but we’re looking for someone to work for us from the end of May through the first part of August.
