2013 Winter Internship for Rick Steve’s Europe

Rick Steves’ Europe Winter 2013 Internship

Rick Steves’ Europe Through the Back Door, publisher of best-selling guidebooks, is seeking candidates for Winter Quarter internships in its book department. Interns at Rick Steves work 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, some writing and editing tasks may also be assigned. While this is an unpaid internship, it is designed as a learning experience. We require that our interns be enrolled in a college or university and that they 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. Fluency in French, German, Italian, or Spanish, while not essential, is a plus. We are seeking two interns for the Winter Quarter internship (Jan. 7th to March 15th).

 

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. To learn more about us, visit http://www.ricksteves.com.

 

If interested, send a cover letter, résumé, and writing samples (published samples preferred, but not required) to Tom Griffin, Guidebook Editor, Rick Steves’ Europe Through the Back Door, tomg@ricksteves.com.
