Editorial and SEO Internship (two openings)
We post new articles every week, but we want to boost that number even higher—and on top of that, we want to make sure people can find those articles easily whether they’re on Facebook, Pinterest, Twitter, or Google.
This fall, we need someone who can:
- Manage an editorial calendar incorporating team posts, guest posts, and special features
- Write excellent blog posts about news, trends, and special interest topics in travel
- Work with our social media team to learn what our community is looking for and loves to see
- Optimize our past blog posts for search—if you’re new to search engine optimization (SEO), we’re happy to train you
- Interpret Google Analytics, Webmaster Tools, and WordPress SEO to build great content that’s easy to find across multiple platforms
We’re looking for someone who’s extremely organized, has great time management skills, and knows how to write like a human, not a robot or a term paper. If you want to work in marketing and communications, we’ll work with you to help develop your SEO and web writing skills.
To apply, email your resume, a writing sample, and a short email introduction to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Interns must be U.S. citizens, permanent residents, or studying in the U.S. through a student visa. Interns also must be attending a college or university in the United States (or studying abroad from a U.S.-based institution), OR must be recent graduates (within the past two years) and must be 18 or older.
Our interns typically work between five and 10 hours per week, and we’re happy to accommodate your schedule around class, work, or other activities. While you will have regular check-ins with our team, you also will have three one-on-one meetings with your supervisor throughout the semester—at the start, middle, and end—to determine mutual goals for your internship and how we can meet them.
The Frayed Passport team works remotely with Google Hangouts once per week and email check-ins each work day.
Unfortunately we’re unable to provide a stipend just yet, but if you would like to pursue an internship for academic credit, we encourage you to work with your campus advisor.
