Intern with Ms.!

Spend some time with us in our Los Angeles offices! You’ll gain experience in magazine marketing, advertising, writing, researching and other areas of publication—not to mention new feminist perspectives.

Research Fellowships

Research fellows will work closely with our research editor as the primary fact-checkers for each edition of Ms. in print. This is a great opportunity to acquire national magazine experience, learn marketable skills in journalism research and gain confidence in interviewing prominent sources.

Research fellows will be required to attend a half-day orientation and complete an editorial test as part of the application process. They must be available to work in the Beverly Hills office and must commit to at least two issues of the quarterly magazine—eight to 10 hours per week for five weeks per issue, in three-month intervals. They are expected to strictly adhere to deadlines, respond quickly to questions and feedback and independently connect with sources and writers to complete assignments. Ideal candidates will have a clear passion for feminism and a background in journalism or nonfiction writing and be self-motivated critical thinkers and sticklers for detail. 

Research fellows will be paid $500 per issue.

To apply, email chahn@msmagazine.com with the following:

  • A cover letter and resume. Please include a GPA on your resume or attach a transcript. In your cover letter, please detail your fact-checking and research experience in detail.
  • Two references and / or letters of recommendation. Letters may be submitted separately to the same email address. References should be able to speak to your research experience.

Applications are processed on a rolling basis. Applicants with background in both journalism and feminist activism will be given priority. Applicants from outside the U.S. are welcome, but responsible for obtaining the documentation necessary for their entry.

Social Media Internships

Social Media Interns will work closely with our digital editor to craft and implement strategies for social media management, digital promotions and online community-building projects—and have the opportunity to share some of the print magazine production responsibilities described above and contribute to the Ms. blog. This is a great, hands-on opportunity to learn how to leverage social media to create social change, gain insight into how social media shapes digital publishing and grow your own social media bonafides.
