It's a new year and a new set of goals, so we're staffing up our Curbed National editorial team and looking for a few stable of interns and writers to join us as we march boldly into 2012. A passion for all things real estate, interior design, architecture, and online media are pre-requisites, natch. Blogging experience a plus. Grasp of the right tone even better. And while it's no fun to have to use career-center terms such as "hardworking," "motivated," and "self-starter," these are required personality traits as well. If this sounds like you, read on after the jump to find out what we're looking for.
SPRING INTERNS—We're looking for interns with journalism in their blood to help us out from approximately mid-January through May. Day-to-day responsibilities will include administrative tasks—photo research, transcribing interviews, creating galleries, assisting with clerical and office work, and lots of Internet trolling on any number of topics covered on Curbed National. This is a non-paying gig, but it's a fun work environment, there's potential for bylines and, of course, there's the everlasting glory.
CONTRIBUTING COLUMNISTS—We're looking for writers with brainstorming in their blood to conceive and create new, compelling Curbed National features and columns from scratch. You should be comfortable speaking to architects, designers, and real estate folk, your writing skills should be on the good side of the spectrum, and you should be willing to regularly pitch ideas on both a macro and a micro level. This is a freelance position that will require researching and writing five to eight posts a month, with potential to expand. Industry contacts a plus.
MARKET EDITORS—Ideally designed for someone in NYC, this job requires coverage of industry events and trade shows. Solid reporting skills and the ability to use a digital camera well are a must.
If you're interested, please send an email to email@example.com with the job title you're applying for in the subject line, and include a short paragraph about yourself and your interest in the gig. Bonus points for anyone who can make us laugh. No attachments, please. If we like what we see, we'll get back to you quickly. Thanks.
