Green Car Reports--or, more accurately, our parent High Gear Media--is looking for editorial interns who want to write, publish, and edit content for our network of 39 automotive sites.

Here's what our interns get:

  • a broad array of web publishing skills and experience
  • published under their own bylines
  • training and feedback from experienced editors
  • access to product, marketing and business staff
  • an inside view of how a venture-funded Internet media company operates

The duties, or at least some of them:

  • writing, publishing, and editing online content
  • researching and writing articles
  • editing and optimizing content: headlines, grammar, style, punctuation
  • learning the correct response to, "Where the hell is MY FRICKIN' LATTE?"

What our interns need to have:

  • a passion for automotive writing and online media
  • excellent writing and editing skills
  • familiarity with creating content for online media (links, integrating images, etc.)
  • a hunger for working on fast-breaking content with tight deadlines
  • Internet access and their own computers

Regrettably, these are unpaid internships (we're a startup). But we're happy to recommend interns who do well for jobs or graduate school. And we can also work with them on getting course credit.

If you're interested--or you know anyone who would be--full details are in the link below.
