Join Us. Communicate Better. Get Paid.
The Undercurrent is currently recruiting two fall editorial interns to join our growing team.
Who: Full-time students seeking experience applying Objectivism to today’s world
When: 10 weeks, October – December, 2011
What: Paid editorial/writing internship, $1000 stipend (100 hour commitment)
How: Apply here by Oct 12, 2011
Our program allows a student to participate in our writing and editing activities to communicate an Objectivist analysis of culture and politics or our blog and print formats. Selected candidates will write and publish objective, persuasive articles and blog posts for a general or college audience and receive valuable feedback and editorial guidance from our editing team.
The Undercurrent draws participants from across the country, and therefore the intern will work from home, collaborating over email and regular teleconference meetings. Work hours are flexible (average 10 hours per week) to allow the intern to combine regular writing and other tasks with normal classwork and other obligations. Candidates should be familiar with Objectivism and interested in effectively communicating those ideas to the public. Candidates must be full-time students.
Regular tasks include:
- Writing regular blog posts, Campus Media Response articles, and some longer articles
- Participation in the collaborative editorial process with other writers
- Attendance and participation at regular teleconference meetings
Past participants in the program have praised their experiences: “I enriched the persuasiveness of my ideas (both in conversation and in writing) as I learned to think more objectively. I regularly found myself asking, ‘What facts make this argument convincing’ and, ‘how do I best communicate these facts to those I’m trying to convince?’”
Don’t miss this unique opportunity: we look forward to your application.
