BowTie Inc. is America’s leading producer of pet and animal media—magazines, websites and books—and its publications are distributed nationally to millions of consumers, retailers, veterinarians and breeders. Founded in 1974 as Fancy Publications with just one title, the company has developed an impressive roster of more than 50 consumer and business-to-business magazines, a rapidly growing special interest book division, an industry-leading distribution company, and a growing online pet portal (animalnetwork.com).
BowTie’s internship program, the Shattuck Fellowship Program, is designed to give interns a comprehensive understanding of magazine, website and book publishing through professional-level experience. Interns at BowTie Inc., who work at the company’s Irvine and Laguna Hills offices, function as entry-level employees. They participate in team meetings, complete projects integral to the company’s goals and apply knowledge learned at school in a real-life setting. Intern tasks vary, and can include anything from writing and editing articles, to choosing photos and art for stories. In addition to their assignments, BowTie interns work closely with and learn from high-level executives in the publishing industry through weekly seminars where they can ask career advice and questions about publishing in general. Interns also have lunch with the company founder and chairman of the board. BowTie also has a good percentage of interns hired into permanent jobs with the company.
Open to college juniors and seniors, as well as graduate students and recent grads with relevant experience. The program offers internships in magazine/book editing, illustration and premedia.
