Parenting Intern, CafeMom

CafeMedia is hiring a paid intern for CafeMom, a leading destination for millennials which shows motherhood with no filter.  Our stories give readers the break they deserve: a moment to laugh, commiserate, connect or learn about something they haven’t heard before.

The intern will pitch, research and write slideshows and articles daily.  Our parenting content spans a wide range of topics and lifts a variety of voices.  Popular topics include viral parenting news, amazing birth stories, funny visuals (cartoons, memes, kids reactions), breaking studies and fresh advice on common parenting concerns.  The intern should be a whiz at surfacing trends born on social media and shaping it into a story or slideshow our readers will want to read and share.  The right candidate will have a knack for digital content and packaging — that is, writing great headlines, pitching a lot, and executing clearly and concisely. 

Responsibilities:

  • Pitch and write 1 slideshow daily, and articles as needed
  • Other responsibilities include calling in samples, fact checking, sourcing and taking photographs, and even the opportunity to go in front of the camera.

Requirements:

  • 1-2 years experience writing for the internet
  • Previous experience with a major media brand
  • A clear and authentic voice
  • Good self-editing skills
  • A strong sense for visuals and telling stories with photos
  • Ability to juggle multiple projects at once and carry them from idea to execution


To apply, please submit a resume, a brief note about yourself, and two story pitches (no more than two or three sentences each) that you think would be a fit for the CafeMom audience.  Also, include two relevant clips.

We regret that we are unable to respond to each resume. Only those individuals selected for interviews will be contacted. CafeMedia is an equal opportunity employer.
