Overview

As the leading independent modern media company, Vox Media ignites conversations and influences culture. Across digital, podcasts, TV, streaming, live events, and print, we tell stories that affect our audience’s daily lives and entertain as much as they inform. Vox Media has been named one of Fast Company’s “Most Innovative Companies in Media,” an Inc. “Company of the Year,” Digiday’s “Best Company for Parents,” and one of the Best Places to Work for LGBTQ Equality by the Human Rights Campaign.

New York Magazine is looking for three full-time Editorial Interns to join us for the Fall 2021 semester. Interns have the opportunity to work on one of three teams: The Cut, Vulture, or The Strategist, and applicants will have the ability to rank their team preference via the Google Form application detailed below.

To apply for The Cut’s internship, candidates must complete both this application and our internship application Google Form. We will be accepting applications from July 1st to July 31st; the internship runs from September 13th to December 17th. Applicants should apply via the google form for their top choice, but second and third rankings will also be considered, so please be sure to note which teams you’d be interested in working with if we aren’t able to place you with your first choice.

The ideal candidates will have editorial experience, a passion for and interest in The Cut and New York Magazine coverage, and an eagerness to take on a range of tasks related to our daily publishing. Interns will be paid an hourly wage; we do not offer internships for academic credit, and we cannot provide housing for interns, or sponsor visas. Please reach out to internships@nymag.com if you have any questions.
