We’ll Only Ask You To Get Us Coffee If You Were Already Getting Some Yourself, We Promise.
We’re looking for a number of interns to join our squad this summer to help us in our ever-growing efforts to cover the great City of Dallas, its various exciting cultures and its always curious trends.
Specifically, we’re looking for interns on three fronts this summer. Here’s a bit of a rundown on what we’re seeking:
- Editorial Intern. Our ideal candidate here is a 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 Intern. The perfect candidate here is well-versed in all aspects of the Adobe Suite, and a creator in their own right. We seek someone eager to help our writing staff better visualize their stories, as well as someone 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 a candidate 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.
Top-notch 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 will also be able to come into our new Deep Ellum office at least three days and 15-20 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.
We’ve already received some applications from some real go-getters 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. If you think you fit the bill for one of the above positions, please email me ASAP at pete [at] centraltrack [dot] com. Put “2017 SUMMER INTERNSHIP” in the subject line. Include a resume, some samples of your work 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 summer internship with Central Track is 6 p.m. on Wednesday, May 10. We look forward to hearing from you!
