How to Get an Internship with Mashable

Mashable has become one of the top content curating sites on the internet, rivaling Buzzfeed in terms of sheer content. Not only does it provide readers with fascinating articles on a wide range of topics, but it ensures that only the best quality content is posted.

While Mashable has a regular staff, the company is often on the prowl for interns to work in their offices--which are located in both New York and San Francisco. If you’re looking for a great job, you may want to consider joining Mashable as an intern.

Why Join Mashable?

One intern published an article after a 10-month internship at Mashable, talking about how great it is to work for the company. Here are some of the reasons he cited:

  • You get to write about awesome stuff. There’s no denying it, Mashable ALWAYS curates interesting content, and on all sorts of interesting subjects.
  • Mashable has a great community. With millions of people interacting on Mashable every day, there’s a lot you can learn on every topic.
  • Interns can meet interesting, creative, and like-minded people. Working with fellow writers can help you to develop your skills and expand your network.
  • Interns often end up working full-time at Mashable, or land other high-quality jobs thanks to the experience they got at Mashable.

As a bonus of sorts, Mashable offers interns a kitchen stocked with all sorts of goodies--including real food. For many graduates and students, food is a luxury that they can only afford in limited amounts. With a Mashable internship, you can eat a bit better as you work.
