Philadelphia Magazine

Editorial Intern

May - August 2019 • Philadelphia, PA

What I liked

I got the real life experience how a magazine editorial company works. I learned what the editorial process is like and how long does it take to get things published. How many factors that goes into making a magazine. It was a great learning experience.

What I wish was different

I wish interns got paid that’s all.

Advice

If the editors need help with anything, always volunteer no matter what. That’s how they remember you because you showed a lot of initiative, which they really like.

Editorial Intern

June - August 2018 • Philadelphia, PA

What I liked

Great Place to start a career in journalism. You really get to see all parts of the business and have the opportunity to build your portfolio with a variety of writing styles.

What I wish was different

I wish that editors took more of an interest in interns, this experience is truly what you make of it. You have to reach out to people and work hard to form relationships in the office!

Advice

Take every assignment, even if it seems small.
