Fashion Journal

Editorial Interns

company: Fashion Journal
job title: Editorial Interns
location: Melbourne
work type: Internship
level: Junior

Role Description

Are you passionate about media, magazines and fashion? Do you have a way with words, great attention to detail and endless creative ideas? Are you currently studying and an internship is part of your course requirements? Well, you’re in the right place then, because Fashion Journal is on the lookout for a new cohort of interns.

So let’s get down to business. Firstly, this isn’t one of those internships where you’ll be getting coffee and reorganising the beauty cupboard – this is about practical learning. We work with interns closely to give feedback and develop their work to a standard worthy of publishing.

As a result, post-internship, you will have a developed portfolio of published written work and an understanding of the pitching process to continue your career. Many of our interns continue on as regular contributors, and this is our aim for you too if you come on board.

Our internships are about your learning. As such, we’ve outlined the learning objectives below. If there is further learning or proficiency you would like to develop during your time with us (production, editing, etc), then we’re open to making that happen. 

LEARNING OBJECTIVES

  • Confidence in a professional environment
  • Working understanding of WordPress 
  • Proficiency in navigating various styles of writing and tones of voice 
  • Comfortable responding to and building on feedback
  • Understanding of interview process and proficiency in writing and conducting interviews

OUTCOMES

  • A portfolio of published work
  • Competency in pitching and contributing to other publications on a freelance basis

HOW IT’S ACHIEVED

  • Close feedback loop
  • Entry interview to ascertain your key areas of development
  • One month interview to check in
  • Exit interview to benefit future interns 

YOU WILL NEED

  • To be a strong writer with a great eye for detail
  • Have a strong understanding of the Fashion Journal brand and tone of voice
  • Be creative and come armed with lots of content ideas
  • Be prepared to work closely with our editors to refine your writing skills
  • Be prompt, organised, efficient and have top-notch communication skills

Please note, this is an unpaid internship, and we only accept editorial interns in accordance with university or TAFE course requirements, so please provide us with your relevant course code and lecturer’s name in your cover letter. Please also include samples of your writing (a university assignment will suffice!).

These requirements generally dictate the duration of the internship, but we are open to discussing the duration of your time with us. Our internships are best suited to students studying journalism, professional communications or a similar course.

If you fail to include your course code and lecturer’s name in your cover letter, we will not consider your application, no matter how impressive it is. Attention to detail is one of the most important skills to possess when working in editorial, and if you apply but fail to include this crucial information, it will make us wonder what else you might not pay close attention to when interning with us.

Until further notice, our internships are carried out remotely, so if you get the gig, you will need a sturdy Wi-Fi connection, Zoom installed on your laptop and to familiarise yourself with Google Docs. Oh, and it might pay to read this before submitting your application.
