BuzzFeed Fellowship at BuzzFeed in New York, NY
The BuzzFeed Fellowship is a five month program for the next generation of editors eager to master the tools and techniques of the social web. Over the course of the program, you will learn how to create social content that readers love to share. This includes writing and editing posts tailored to BuzzFeed's audience of social sharers, using the daily news cycle as a stepping off point for your work, and exploring how people share on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and other social sites. You'll rotate through several content areas -- creating socially engaging posts, working with both video and images, learning about different editorial styles and BuzzFeed's creative services -- before choosing a specialty, and will leave the program with an impressive array of clips and viral hits.
- High emotional intelligence
- The ability to take perspective of others
- A positive, curious, playful disposition (no haters)

Fellows will work with and learn from members of the BuzzFeed team as well as a world-class group of guest speakers and BuzzFeed partners. This is the perfect fellowship for someone interested in pursuing a career in media, publishing or creative services who is fascinated by the web, human psychology and pop culture.
This is a paid internship based in our NYC offices.
