Business Insider’s Retail vertical is looking for a paid intern in our Manhattan office.

If you’re interested in all the things people spend money on, you might be the ideal candidate. Common brands we cover include McDonald’s, Wal-Mart, Amazon, Victoria’s Secret, Chipotle, and more.

From testing the latest item at Taco Bell to covering the death of shopping malls, this internship offers a unique opportunity to explore consumer culture.

We’re looking for the following:

  • Excellent writing skills
  • Basic understanding of business news and current events
  • Interest in business strategy for big consumer companies as well as start-ups and e-commerce
  • Journalism background and interest in social media are a plus

As an intern at Business Insider, there’s no getting coffee, filing, or making copies.

Our interns are an integral part of our team. Many of our current writers and editors started as interns.

BI Interns spend their time doing meaningful work: researching, writing, pitching and producing features — even breaking news if the timing’s right.

Interns are encouraged to work full-time (40 hours a week) if their schedule allows.

APPLY HERE with a resume and cover letter if this sounds like your dream internship, and specify why you’re interested in working on Retail.
