Rick Steves’ Europe Spring Quarter 2015 Internship!

Rick Steves’ Europe Spring 2015 Internship

Rick Steves’ Europe, publisher of best-selling travel guidebooks, is seeking candidates for a three-month editorial internship in its book department. Interns at Rick Steves’ Europe 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. (If you have already graduated, you do not qualify for this internship.)

We are seeking journalism/communication/English 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. Knowledge of French, German, Italian, or Spanish, while not essential, is a plus. We are seeking one intern for Spring Quarter. The internship will run March 30-June 5, 2015.

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.
