Interning at The New York Times

31 Jul

Today I created a Facebook group for the Summer ’09 NYTimes Interns and it reminded me that my internship is really awesome! I also love the work environment at The New York Times, so I wanted to share it with you! Below are some photos of the beautiful space that I work in! What a blessed life!

(Above: My subway station exit is about 10 steps from the building. So, each morning, I enter here!)

Not only is working at NYTimes.com amazing, it’s aesthetically-inspiring!!!

    Wow, how did you manage to get an internship like this? Amazing! How long was it? How did you apply for it? Through your school?

      I learned about the internship through a job fair at NYU (my undergrad school). They were looking for marketing interns, so I happened to be in the right place at the right time. Funny story, though, I initially went to the NYTimes table with my journalist friend, because he wanted to see if they were hiring writers. I didn’t even talk to the recruiters about jobs, b/c I somehow thought they would only be recruiting journalists. So, instead I started talking about their cool branded products, included a highlighter with three colors in one. That lead to a conversation of my major, which lead to a resume hand-off, which lead to an email, which lead to an interview, which lead to me landing one of the best internships in the world. The internship lasted for a year, and I am now working as a social media consultant at The Times. It has been a great run so far.
