Summer 2013- Cosmo Interns
Cosmo looks for enthusiastic undergrads with a big passion for magazines to work with our editors during the winter, spring, summer, and fall semesters. Our ideal candidates are motivated, creative, multitaskers with great written (and verbal!) communication skills. Sound like you? You can apply by mailing your resume and cover letter to:

Caryn Kanare
300 W 57th Street, 38th Floor
New York, NY 10019
(No phone calls please)

In your cover letter, please specify which department you’re most interested in (articles, web, fashion, beauty, art, photo, books, or radio), the semester you’re available, and why you’d make an awesome intern.

Fall (early September through late December): 6/16
Spring (Early February through mid-May): 10/31

Do I need to have had a previous magazine internship to be considered?
While it helps, we don’t require that our interns have previous magazine experience. In fact, we’ve found that some of our best interns have been total newcomers to the magazine world. However, we do love to see involvement with websites, blogs, and/or school publications on the resumes of our applicants to get a sense of their interest in the field.

Can I intern at Cosmo if I’ve already graduated from school?
Unfortunately, our internships are only open to undergrad students who are eligible to receive college credit. Grad school applicants will not be considered. (Additionally, please note that all Cosmo internships are unpaid.)

Are there any availability requirements?
Yes. We require that Cosmo interns are able to work two full days a week in our New York office during the spring and fall semesters, and four days a week during our summer and winter semesters (when students are on break).

What is a typical day like?
While there’s really no such a thing as a “typical day” here at Cosmo (assignments vary so widely!), intern responsibilities often include assisting editors with research and reporting, transcribing interviews, compiling stories, calling in products, brainstorming ideas, and providing administrative support to staffers.
