SKI Magazine Covers 2017

Editorial Internship
If you're a motivated and self-directed college or grad-school student, we want you to join our editorial team in Boulder, Colorado. Our 10- to 15-week internships offer upcoming reporters and editors a glimpse into the inner workings of the best ski publication in the country: SKI magazine. You give us hard work, and we'll make you an integral part of a close-knit family.

You'll work directly with the small group of SKI editors and walk away with clips from SkiMag.com as well as in print. You'll also conduct interviews with athletes, be involved in gear write-ups, work on photo projects and see how two of the most respected skiing publications come together.

DUTIES:

Duties may include: fact-checking, researching, reporting, writing, proofreading and editing articles, calling in products and gear for testing, gathering and shooting photos, participating in editorial meetings, developing multimedia packages for the web, brainstorming story ideas, planning events and editing basic html. Don't worry, we try to keep the coffee-getting to a minimum.

QUALIFICATIONS:

Interns must be willing to adapt to the ever-changing world of a trusted ski publication while being reliable and not afraid to bring ideas to the table. Previous journalism experience—either with a local publication or a student newspaper—is preferred. Knowledge of, and an interest in, skiing is required.

DEADLINE TO APPLY:
1 p.m., Monday, July 30 (for Fall/Winter editorial internships)

START DATE:
TBD

All internships are unpaid. Interns must receive school credit.

Please send resume, cover letter and no more than three writing samples to Samantha Berman, sberman@aimmedia.com. Please indicate in the email subject line that you are applying for an editorial internship.

Digital Content Internship
Do you foresee the future of SEO and Social Media? We need your help. SKI is looking for digital content interns with writing chops and a passion for skiing. Duties for this 10-15 week internship include building web articles with your own design prowess, SEO optimization, gear testing, writing articles for SKImag.com and possibly print, and getting a in-depth look at the perpetually changing world of the ski industry and its relationship to the internet. You might meet a few pro athletes, too.

QUALIFICATIONS

Interns should be working towards a major or a minor in digital studies, communications and/or a similar field of studies. They will need to be self-starting, strong writers, and willing to say "no" if they are asked to get coffee for the nearby Backpacker Magazine staff (SKI would never ask that of their interns).

DEADLINE TO APPLY:
1 p.m., Monday, July 30 (for Fall/Winter editorial internships)

START DATE:
TBD

All internships are unpaid. Interns must receive school credit.

Please send resume, cover letter and a writing sample to Jon Jay, jjay@aimmedia.com. Please indicate in the email subject line that you are applying for an digital content internship.

Photography Internship
These 14-week-long internships are based at our editorial headquarters in Boulder, Colorado. Intern workload includes: assisting in our photo studio and on assignment, photo retouching, coordinating photography, working with our art department to build cohesive stories, invoicing, production workflow, and participating in staff meetings.

Our staff is small, so interns work closely with art directors, photo editors, and editors. Interns should be dedicated, hard-working, conscientious, and fun-loving, with a career interest in photography. A very strong foundation in the Adobe Creative Suite, as well as previous journalism or photography experience is required. A passion for the sport of skiing helps.

All internships are unpaid and must be for college credit. Email resume, cover letter, and portfolio to kbascetta@aimmedia.com. Please indicate in the subject line that you are applying for a photography internship.
