HOW seeks highly organized student interns to work in both editorial and design capacities on the magazine, books and online projects. This internship program offers an excellent opportunity to learn first-hand the day-to-day operations of a multiplatform media brand, to learn from veteran art directors and editors, and to encounter design work from leading firms around the world.
Design interns function as an integral part of the design team, working on most visual aspects of the magazine and website. Responsibilities may include assisting with production, which entails color correction, file conversion, and ensuring layouts are fit to print (CMYK images, correct bleeds, updated links). Design interns may also be expected to reach out to get art submitted for the magazine and web, to archive HOW for the web, and to organize the physical archive. Design interns may also be involved in maintaining and creating content for the website, and in basic layout and production for HOW Books.
Editorial interns work alongside HOW’s editors to develop content for the magazine and website. Responsibilities may include research and fact-checking, copyediting, online content preparation and writing.
Please note that HOW internships are conducted on a for-credit basis. Any applicant to the program must be able to receive credit for the internship (or must be remunerated by his or her school in another manner already established by that school). HOW interns must be local to Cincinnati and able to work approximately 8–16 hours per week. Interns must be passionate about design and journalism. Start dates begin in July 2010.
