Paste Internships: Apply Now

Music  |  Features

Now seeking: Editorial interns, design interns, social-media/marketing intern

Do you have dreams of an internship where, in addition to garnering all that “real world experience” (and boy is there ever some of that), you get to wear all your band t-shirts to work, and the staff meetings are fun, and the mail runs yield hundreds of new CDs each week, and no Xerox or espresso machine experience is required because everyone in the office makes their own copies and coffee? Does this office happen to be housed in a former art gallery down the street from the Waffle House Museum in Decatur, Ga., convenient to the MARTA rail line and all the music, film, food, and culture that Atlanta has to offer? Is everyone wearing headphones and staring intently at their MacBooks, perhaps working hard— or perhaps just about to totally LOL at the latest YouTube video making its rounds about the office?

If so, you might want to consider doing something about it. Like, say, applying for an internship at Paste. It’s everything you’ve been dreaming of (and more). And you’re in luck—we’re currently taking applications for our upcoming terms. Please click around for some basic info, answers to frequently asked question and application instructions.
