The Opportunity: Greatist.com is the web’s most trusted resource on all things fitness, health, and happiness. We publish articles and tips that help readers make healthier choices every day. We’re looking for an intern to take charge of our news section— ideally someone with substantial online journalism experience, who’s interested in uncovering the latest and most exciting health research.
The Details: Want to reach tens of thousands of readers every day? This position is unpaid, BUT the right candidate will get plenty of bylines and a ton of writing and reporting experience. The intern will have a chance to pitch news stories, interview researchers, and write several articles a week. When a new study comes out— on sperm cells or marijuana or cutting calories— the news intern will be responsible for giving readers the unbiased, easy-to-read scoop.
Interested? If you love to write and want to help change the world of health and fitness, please send (a) your resume, (b) your favorite health & fitness tip (and why it’s your favorite!), and (c) two writing samples to opps [at] greatist [dot] com.
