If We Hire You, We Promise We Won’t Ask You To Get Our Coffee For Us. Mostly Because We’re Too Particular About Our Coffee. But Still!
Hey, you. Yeah — you. No, not the person behind you. C’mon. You!
Are you a college student this fall? Are you interested in learning the ins and outs of what it’s like to work at a growing media company?
Whoa! You are?!?!?! What a coincidence. We’re looking for a few people just like you, too!
Specifically, we’re looking for interns to join our scrappy little squad on three different fronts this fall. Here’s a bit more info on what we’re seeking:
- Editorial Interns. Our ideal candidates here are not just interested in area culture (music, nightlife, fashion, restaurants, bars, etc.), but also at least a little familiar with it. Applicants should be strong, efficient and prolific writers who aren’t afraid to have and share an opinion. Responsibilities will include assisting in our day-to-day operations, maintaining and contributing to our listings and event previews, and crafting for publication other articles, both pitched and assigned.
- Photography/Graphic Design Interns. The perfect candidates here are well-versed in all aspects of the Adobe Suite, and creators in their own right. We seek people who eager to help our writing staff better visualize their stories, as well as candidates who are capable to telling their own stories through visual means. Responsibilities will include photo editing, creating infographics and visually covering events that happen throughout the market.
- Social Media/Marketing Intern. Here, we seek candidates with an interest in social media, events and branding. Responsibilities will include conceiving and executing social media campaigns, assisting with event production and helping out with other branding efforts, both inside and outside of our office.
Ideally, the top candidates for each of the above positions will be currently enrolled in an area college or university, and will be able to receive class credit for their efforts. They’ll also be able to come into our Deep Ellum office 10 to 15 hours each week somewhere during the hours of 9 a.m. and 7 p.m., Monday through Friday.
Also, it’s worth noting that all accepted applicants will be required to have internet access, to supply their own computing device and to provide their own transportation to and from the office.
Already, we’ve received some applications from a few real go-getters out there who emailed us of their own volition, without this prompting. But we think we might be able to find a few other diamonds out in the rough. Hence this post!
If you think you fit the bill for one of the above positions, please email me ASAP at pete [at] centraltrack [dot] com. Please put “2017 FALL INTERNSHIP” in the subject line so your email doesn’t get lost in the shuffle. Also, be sure to include a resume, some samples of your work if you have any to share, and a cover letter detailing your experience in the field of the internship for which you are applying and some words about why you think you’d be a good fit at CT.
The deadline for applying for a fall internship with Central Track is 6 p.m. on Thursday, August 31. We look forward to hearing from you!
