Started in 1944, Seventeen magazine was the first magazine to target the teen market (girls and young women, ages 12 to 24). Devoted to fashion and issues relating to teenage girls (as well as the latest gossip on the hottest new stars), it has a circulation of 2.3 million.
Interns work in several departments, including fashion, beauty, art and production and editorial (features and entertainment). Fashion and beauty interns organize products and call in samples. They also have the opportunity to prepare for and assist in shoots. Art and production interns scan and organize photos and work on the layout of the magazine. Editorial interns research articles and set up interviews. All interns function as direct assistants to staff members, performing tasks that keep the magazine running day to day. In addition, interns perform administrative and scheduling tasks and attend seminars with editors and magazine executives.
Open to current college students who possess a strong interest in journalism, art, production, fashion or entertainment. Interns must be able to receive academic credit.
