Internships at Green Lifestyle magazine
Love writing about the environment and green living? Want to do some of the best jobs in environmental and lifestyle communication? Come intern with us! Get hands-on experience working in magazine and online journalism; you’ll help with researching stories and pictures, writing, editing, designing, fact-checking and more.
Get an inside look at journalism in action, and see what goes into putting a magazine together, working at the award-winning Australian publication, Green Lifestyle, and website, Green Lifestyle Online.
From our offices in Sydney's North Shore, our enthusiastic team provides opportunities for students keen to try their hand at journalism and who want some hands-on experience working in magazine and online journalism, or who want to get a behind-the-scenes view of the magazine publishing industry from up close.
Location: St Leonards, Sydney, NSW.
Details: Interns accepted for 1-2 days per week for a minimum of four weeks and up to six months.
* Please note that interns are required to have public liability and personal injury insurance. If you are currently attending an accredited tertiary educational institute, this insurance is typically and easily organised through your education provider, at no cost to you.
You can help us research story ideas, write news stories, find pictures and illustrations, fact-check articles, proofread or undertake other tasks that contribute to the creation of each print issue as well as G-Online. Interns even take part in editorial meetings and are encouraged to propose concepts and ideas. Depending on your writing ability, you're likely to end up getting published, either in the magazine or the website.
Interns are unpaid, but receive a written reference describing their duties and performance during their stay plus copies of the issue on which they worked. Not all tasks are glamorous (like fact-checking or admin duties) but they are essential. And yes, we do consider interns from outside Australia who may be visiting the country.
If you are interested, send us a brief email or letter explaining why you would like to work as an intern at Green Lifestyle, and include some background on yourself, a resume and examples of published or unpublished articles.
