Life at The Daily Meal isn't exactly a box of chocolates. But actually, it kind of is, and you can be a part of it.
We are looking for talented, driven, food-obsessed individuals to join our team as summer interns. In addition to general administrative duties, job responsibilities will include researching and compiling data for editorial content, assisting the editors in curating the restaurant and bar city guides, and reaching out to contributors. There will also be opportunities to contribute writing, including recipes and restaurant reviews. (Not to mention the occasional taste test, which recently involved extensive sampling to find the ultimate chip and dip.)
This is an unpaid internship for academic credit only. It is a wonderful(ly fun) opportunity to learn about the food world and what goes into the maintenance of a large-scale, national food website.
Candidates should have a love of food and drink, have a comprehensive knowledge of the online food media landscape, be able to multitask and adapt, and be able to research and write quickly and effectively.
Here's what you need to do. Email Arthur Bovino, executive editor, and me, Tyler Sullivan, assistant editor, with your résumé, cover letter, and two writing clips. Have a couple of days to devote to us a week (at least three to four), and tell us why you would benefit from an internship at The Daily Meal.
So keep shooting us those emails, qualified candidates. We look forward to having you.
