Summer is coming, and with the new season comes new opportunities for prospective interns at Third Coast Daily. It’s an exciting time for us, as we move into a new identity as Milwaukee’s hub for arts & entertainment, and we’d like to bring you along for the ride. Think you might be interested? Read on:

WHO WE ARE
Third Coast Daily is Milwaukee’s home for focused, detailed and comprehensive arts & entertainment coverage. An online presence since 2009, TCD covers art and artists in the realms of music, theater, dance, film, literature and the visual arts, along with columns and profiles on fashion, travel and dining. As an exclusively digital publication, TCD is able to supplement our written coverage with a variety of multimedia components, including podcasts, video interviews and profiles, and varied use of social media including Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and more. Our primary aim is to further establish ourselves as Milwaukee’s cultural authority, and continue to help the growth of the arts in our local community.

WHAT WE’RE LOOKING FOR
The barebones answer to this question is simple: we’re seeking an editorial intern and a social media intern to join our team for the summer. All internship terms will last a minimum of 12 weeks, and interns are expected to work at least 10 hours a week, although some of those may be from home or other remote locations. All internships are unpaid, although if you are still in school, college credit can be offered should you desire it. For specifics on each position, follow the following links:

 

 

More broadly, we’re looking for people with a drive to explore the possibilities of our online medium, a passion for the arts and/or Milwaukee culture, and the creativity and ambition to get as much as you can out of this internship. Unlike many other media outlets, we don’t require interns to be currently enrolled in college or recent graduates – we’re looking for the best new additions to our team regardless of age or educational status. If you are a current or recent student though, don’t let that scare you off; TCD’s intern program is first and foremost meant to promote hands-on learning, and our smaller staff gives you the opportunity to work directly with the whole team, many of whom were in fact once interns here themselves.

HOW TO APPLY
Please send a cover letter, resume and (if applicable) at least two examples of prior work to managing editor Matthew Reddin at mreddin@urbanmilwaukeedial.com. The deadline for all applications is April 26, 2013.
