Intern at Reason This Coming Spring!

The deadline for Reason magazine’s
Spring internship, which begins in January, is next week (November
13). Applications have been coming in already, but given that I am
expecting some applications to be sent in at the last possible
moment, I thought it would be worth highlighting some
words of wisdom
from my former colleague Mike Riggs, who back
in March outlined five tips on how to land an internship. If you
don’t feel like reading Mike’s post in full (you really should),
here are the tips in brief:

  • Follow instructions
  • Write the hell out of your cover letter
  • Show some familiarity with the publication
  • Tell me what you can do for us, because we know what we can do
    for you
  • Be Patient

I know it sounds easy, but otherwise good applicants have
jeopardized their chances of securing an internship here in the
past by not following these simple tips. Those lucky enough to get
an internship here have the chance to write for Reason
magazine and, conduct research, and proofread. 

The instructions for how to apply for the internship are

Good luck wannabe Reason interns. I look forward to
hearing from you soon.
