Spring 2017 Content Marketing- Strolleria Scottsdale, AZ- PAID
Strolleria, a retailer of high-quality baby gear, is looking for an intern to create content that helps parents choose products like strollers and car seats—some of the most important and most overwhelming purchases they’ll make for their children.

Founded in May 2016, Strolleria is a fast-paced start-up with ambitious goals to modernize and personalize the baby gear shopping experience, both online and in our North Scottsdale showroom. You’ll create educational product comparisons, blog posts and videos, as well as marketing content that helps Strolleria attract new customers and grow sales.

This internship won’t involve coffee runs and pointless tasks. Reporting to Strolleria’s husband-and-wife owners, you’ll work on projects that directly help the company grow while gaining digital content experience and work samples valuable for any career in content marketing, journalism or PR.

Familiarity with baby gear is not required, especially because you’ll be writing for an audience new to these topics. More important is your interest in digital content and your ability to work independently, perform detailed research and explain complex topics in an authoritative yet relatable way. (Yes, strollers and car seats are complex!)

This is a paid, part-time position with flexible hours. While visits to our showroom near Scottsdale Quarter will be required, some work can be completed from home on your own time.

What you’ll do:
•Research and write product comparisons that help parents make informed buying decisions
•Improve e-commerce product pages by writing unique descriptions and uploading photos and videos
•Write SEO-optimized copy for landing pages that help drive traffic to Strolleria
•Produce product demonstration videos and optimize them for YouTube
•Write lifestyle and product-related blog posts for local and national audiences, some of which may involve interviewing manufacturer representatives, parents and other experts

Mother Jones Ben Bagdikian Fellowship Program Accepting applications for December 2016
Mother Jones is currently accepting applications for its prestigious Ben Bagdikian Fellowship Program, with openings in San Francisco and New York City. This is a full- time opportunity, starting in December and lasting six months, with the possibility of an additional six-month extension.

Investigating a private prison from the inside. Tailing candidates on the campaign trail. Sifting through public records and scrutinizing massive data sets. Tracking gun violence. Mother Jones is breaking news and creating first-rate investigative journalism for 9 million readers a month. Behind that award-winning reporting—and sometimes in front of it—are the journalists-in-training, deep in the trenches and making sure everything we publish is honest, accurate, and bulletproof.

Mother Jones fellows dig deep into our hard-hitting investigations as fact-checkers, soak up research chops and digital skills, and learn how a nonprofit news business hums. They comb archives and spreadsheets while immersed full time in collaborative projects. Mother Jones is better for it, and at the end of their time in our newsroom MoJo fellows are armed with all the tools of the journalism trade—tools they’ve been paid to learn.

Fellows work closely with top-notch editors, penning pieces about a transgender inmate risking everything to protest mistreatment in jail; digging into Black Lives Matter’s influence on political candidates; illuminating sexual harassment allegations at the EPA; and exposing the failures of abstinence-only education. Many recent alumni of the program have been hired as MoJo staff, while others have gone on to work at outlets like the New York Times, Foreign Policy, BuzzFeed, Politico, and Wired.

Applications for our December 2016 fellowship are due October 1. Mother Jones believes that a diverse team makes our work better. We strongly encourage people from all backgrounds to apply. Learn more about the fellowship position, eligibility, and how to apply.
