Spring Internship Opportunity-Rick Steve’s Europe!

Rick Steves’ Europe Spring Internship

 Rick Steves’ Europe Through the Back Door, publisher of best-selling travel guidebooks, is seeking candidates for an editorial internship in its book department. Interns at Rick Steves work part-time from 10 to 19 hours per week on everything from data-heavy work (fact-checking, organizing feedback, formatting files) to proofreading text and maps for our guidebooks and websites. Depending on the intern’s expertise, various writing and editing tasks are also assigned, such as writing for the media or basic editing of guidebook content. The intern will work with a supervisor and acquire skills needed to succeed in a communication-related career. While this is an unpaid internship, it is designed as a learning experience, and we require that our interns earn college credit for their work.

 We are seeking journalism/communication majors who have had at least one writing or editing course. Experience writing and editing in print or for online publications is preferred. Candidates must be proficient in Microsoft Word. Proficiency in French, German, Italian, or Spanish, while not essential, is a plus. We are seeking one or two interns for Spring Quarter. The internship will run March 26-June 1, 2012.

 Rick Steves’ Europe provides a casual, interpersonally rewarding work environment in scenic Edmonds, Washington, about 20 minutes north of Seattle. We are dedicated to the cause of smart travel. We produce a public television series, weekly radio show and podcasts, write popular travel guidebooks, maintain an extensive travel website, run European tours, sell Eurail passes, teach travel classes, and market an exclusive line of travel gear.

 If interested, send a résumé and writing samples (published samples preferred, but not required) to Tom Griffin, Guidebook Editor, tomg@ricksteves.com.
