Mashable is seeking an internet-obsessed culture intern for our Winter/Spring 2018 term.
This person lives online and finds joy in exploring the deepest, weirdest corners of the internet. They also probably like videos of cats riding vacuums and Game of Thrones fan theories. They are tuned into pop culture and web culture and recognize how to bring the two together. The ideal candidate possesses a strong voice and can craft web-friendly content from images, videos or even a potato.
Mashable's Culture channel covers web culture, lifestyle topics, viral videos, lesser heard voices of the web and the hybrid of entertainment and internet.
We’re looking for someone willing to explore and engage with the internet.
Responsibilities include writing, content hunting, GIF making and researching.
