Winter in New York
Now Hiring: Gear Patrol Winter/Spring Interns
The title says it all — we’re on the hunt for two highly motivated individuals to support the GP team this winter/spring in a slew of editorial capacities. If you’re reading this post, then you’ve already got a grasp of what we do. Adventure, gear, storytelling: we strive to provide the whole package, and that all starts with our team.
From story development to unboxing, multimedia to social media, editorial development to news coverage, an internship at GP is anything but busy-work. We all share coffee duties, thank you very much. If you’ve been itching to get your foot in the door with innovative journalism in men’s media and live or are relocating to the New York area, then this posting is for you. Here are the details:
Basics: The winter/spring internship lasts roughly 16 weeks depending on start dates. We’re flexible. You must be located in New York or have a reasonable commute to our office in midtown New York.
Remuneration: The internship does not include benefits, but we provide a stipend for housing, commuting (MTA) and lunches. The rest is, alas, a chance at valuable experience. Riches this is not, but it does make a dent. We also offer course credit.
What We’re Looking For: You must have a furious passion for excellence in journalism and a keen ability in story development, discovery and editorial perfectionism. Social media, business, love of gear, and technical savviness (in other words, being a nerd) are also requisite, along with ambition and a healthy dose of humility. If you are applying with a design concentration then all the same fundamentals apply; but add more white space. You should be available full time, but we can be flexible with office hours.
To Apply: Interested applicants should email the following to jobs[at]gearpatrol.com with the subject heading: “Winter Intern”. Please include: 1. An introduction on yourself and why you’d be a great fit for the job; 2. Links to any previous work applicable to GP (if you don’t have any, write some and post it somewhere for us to see); 3. Resume in PDF form; 4. Links to your favorite three GP stories and several sentences on why; 4. One sample 500-word article (in GP style) for us to gauge your storytelling abilities.
