I’m excited to announce that I’m looking for blog interns to help me make A Girl Named PJ into a smarter, stylish, more robust lifestyle blog. To be honest, I’m also a little bit nervous because — OMG — what if nobody wants to work with me?
I’m good enough. I’m smart enough. And doggone it, people like me.
Ok, so here are the areas where I need help:
Do you love to write and have excellent grammar skills? Are you an avid blog reader? I’m looking for somebody who can assist me in researching and writing articles, coordinating and conducting interviews, brainstorming blog content, and (possibly) managing social media. There may also be a few administrative duties thrown in for good measure. Plus, you can also have your own column on a topic that interests you as long as it fits within the blog’s style.
Are you an ace at Photoshop? Can beautiful typography and layout design make your day? I’m looking for an intern who can help me with graphic design for blog posts, sidebar images, and social media content. Basically, somebody who can help me make things pretty (and functional).
The ideal candidates should have a strong interest in fashion, beauty, decor, wellness, art, and entertainment, as well as an understanding of A Girl Named PJ’s aesthetic. I’m looking for interns who are creative, responsible, and honest with the ability to both take direction and provide self-direction.
Please note that these are unpaid positions. Interning for school credit is available, but not required. All internships can be done virtually and have flexible hours. (Although wouldn’t it be fun if we could meet up in person?)
For consideration, please submit a cover letter and resume to PJ@agirlnamedpj.com with the subject line FALL 2015 INTERNSHIP. If you’re a writer, please include several writing clips, and if you’re a graphic designer, a link to your portfolio. Also be sure to include your social media handles.
Oh, and FYI, I’m looking to make a decision within the next week or two.
I’ve never hired blog interns before, so this will be a learning experience for everybody involved — but I promise to make it a worthwhile one!
