Group SJR  New York, NY Remote Full Time
Job Posting for Editorial Intern (Remote) at Group SJR
At SJR, we’re a diverse group of individuals dedicated to one goal: elevating the quality of content on the web. We create websites, mobile apps, and social media platforms for our clients, which we populate daily with high-quality media, including articles, mini-documentaries, animations, photographs, and more.

Storytelling is at the heart of what we do, and we’re looking for energetic, creative people who are ready to jump right in to help us uncover and tell great stories.

But enough about us, let’s talk about you.

Who you are:

You’re a self-starter who can learn quickly, has excellent writing and research skills, and is deadline driven and detail oriented. You have strong fact-checking skills and are knowledgeable about the digital media landscape.

Editorial interns are part of the Editorial team and support various client teams on a wide range of projects, from long- and short-form articles to infographics and social posts. Ideally, you have a background or demonstrable interest in journalism, communications, or a related field. You’re comfortable mapping out and communicating your ideas clearly while delivering error-free, well-researched work.

Finally, you consume a lot of media (don’t worry, you can admit to us how many books or television shows you read and binge-watched this month), enjoy staying on top of emerging news and trends, and spend a lot of time on the internet. Bonus points if you love GIFs as much as we do and have a stance on how it should be pronounced.

What you’ll need:

Ideal candidates should possess:

Writing, reporting and copyediting skills
Research and fact-checking abilities
Prior experience with content management systems including WordPress and HootSuite
The ability to meet deadlines and prioritize responsibilities
High attention to detail
Experience using social media platforms including Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Tumblr, Pinterest, and Reddit
If this sounds like you, please apply with a cover letter and resume.
