Mic is a diverse news and media company for young people. Our mission is to inform, inspire, and empower our generation to make change happen. Each month, more than 65 million young people rely on Mic to make sense of the world.
Mic’s social crew sits at the intersection of our many talented teams: be it written or video, branded or analytics. We spend our days obsessing about the strategy and execution of distributing Mic content across our many social media platforms. As the Social Content Intern, you’ll be fully integrated in Mic’s editorial and distribution process — you could be in morning stand-ups with the editors, brainstorming with the video teams, writing tweets, or workshopping headlines with the Audience team. You’ll need to wear multiple hats, and well: journalist, copywriter, data scientist, gif-maker, butcher, baker, candlestick maker — it’s all in a day’s work. Have a passion for social media, words, storytelling, today’s most pressing issues, and a good head on your shoulders
Send us a cover letter that won’t bore our socks off, please — keep it brief, and indisputably “you.” And multimedia, duh.
