It’s been four months since we first put out a call for interns and I’m happy to report that we’ve since expanded our team. In an effort to keep growing, giving our viewers the richest experience possible, we’re hiring again! We’re looking for web-savvy interns who have a knack for writing and a passion for sharing creative ideas to join us.

Quick learner

You’ll have a very flexible schedule – you can work from anywhere
You’ll build a great portfolio of published articles covering a wide range of topics

Our interns will work between 2-3 hours per day for five days a week and will gain first-hand knowledge about working with a top art and design website. Internships are unpaid but we are able to offer college credit. Should the internship extend to longer than one quarter, we will pay our interns hourly.

Here’s How You Can Apply:
Do not reply to this post. Instead, email your resume to [email protected]
In the email, please give us a brief background about yourself and answer these two questions:
1. Why do you want to be an intern at My Modern Met?

This internship is only available for US residents, only.
Again, this will become a paid internship after one quarter.

Thanks and good luck!
