Scout is seeking talented interns in the following categories: Editorial, News, Arts & Community, Marketing and Web Development. Interns will not be responsible for answering phones, fetching coffee or other secretarial tasks. Instead they will be out in the field gaining invaluable journalistic experience and developing writing, reporting, web and marketing skills depending on their specific interests.
Blending the depth and vibrancy of a national magazine with the immediacy of hyperlocal journalism, Scout Magazines cover the arts, food, business, education, technology, sports, entertainment and politics. A full-color bi-monthly glossy honored as Somerville’s small business of the year in 2009, Scout has emerged as an institution and a voice of fun and reason. Scout Somerville has a distribution of roughly 30,000 copies and Scout Cambridge 50,000 copies.
Editorial, News and Arts & Community interns will have the opportunity to publish their work depending on skill level and progress during the internship.
