Business InsiderBusiness Insider is looking for some editorial interns to join its team this spring, beginning in early January.

Managing editor Jessica Liebman writes, "Now that we've settled into our new world headquarters, we have room to hire interns for each one of our verticals-- from markets and Wall Street to technology, media, lifestyle and video.

"Don't be fooled by the term 'intern.' At Business Insider, there's no getting coffee or making copies. Our interns spend their time doing meaningful work: researching, writing, pitching and producing features -- even breaking news if you're so moved. Several of our interns have even gone on to full-time writer/editor positions at BI. We require a minimum of 3 days a week, but interns are encouraged to work full-time if their schedule allows. (Other perks? We have lots of free snacks and a ping-pong table, where interns have been known to give editors a run for their money.)

"When it comes to qualifications, a journalism background always helps, as do copy-editing skills and light HTML and Photoshop experience. Knowledge of social media and previous writing experience a plus.

"Please send your resume and three clips to Please describe which BI vertical(s) interest you most and why. And, please note: this internship requires that you work in our Manhattan office.
