For more than 100 years, Philadelphia magazine has been the center of influence when Philadelphians are making quality of life decisions. We have several lifestyle brands that are at the centers of influence in our city through print and digital content, social media, and events. Our hard-hitting, award-winning journalism delves into the city’s most pressing issues and most powerful people, while respected franchises like Best of Philly and 50 Best Restaurants continue to drive the conversation. Our editors have the pulse on breaking news, food, politics, health, real estate, events, business and culture. We also serve as a creative media agency by developing custom content and marketing campaigns for local and national brands. And our robust calendar of more than 70 high-quality events annually — which range from a wine festival and free workout series to a thought-leader conference — keep fans and partners connected to the best of what Philadelphia has to offer.
Is This the Internship for You?
Our goal is to provide our interns with the most hands-on, practical training and experience in town. You will get exposure to many subject matter experts, be a part of professional trainings and meetings, and have an opportunity to pitch your new ideas while having lunch with the company’s top leaders. Whether you’re on-site at an event, analyzing our digital data metrics, or contributing content to our website or magazine, we expect you to bring new ideas and roll up your sleeves to complete them; your work will be diverse and impactful. This is a great opportunity for students who love to learn by doing, who are passionate about their work, and aren’t shy about trying something new. Academic credit is offered if your school permits it.
We generally request 20 hours per week and can work with selected candidates to match your availability to our current projects. The internship description may specify cases in which other hours are expected. Internships are unpaid. Eligible interns must be currently enrolled in a postsecondary academic institution. High school students and rising college freshman are not eligible to apply.
Our Commitment to Diversity
We believe that different backgrounds and perspectives make us a better company. We celebrate diversity and are committed to creating an inclusive environment for all employees. Our goal is to have a staff that is representative of the communities we serve. We encourage applications from people of color, persons with disabilities, LGBT individuals and other groups historically underrepresented in the publishing and media industry. We do not discriminate against any applicant for employment on the basis of race, color, religion, sex, pregnancy status, gender identity, sexual orientation, national origin, age, disability or genetic information.
