Location: 
San Jose
Semester: 
Fall 2015
Unpaid: 
Yes

99% of us aren't fashion divas or models. But, we do have the desire to feel good about how we look everyday. As consumers, we don't buy everyday and when we do, we crave a highly personal experience! Vue was born with this mission of making style personal and accessible to the 99% of us.

Vue is a personal fashion network composed of friends, stylists and stylepals. It is a place where the average girl can exchange ideas and get suggestions about styling that is personalized to her in unique ways. We focus on fashion as it relates to you instead of the exclusive promotions of model-looks that fashion has been made out to be in our world so far.

Internship Duties: 

As a content writer for Vue, you will be writing blog posts, articles and potentially stories on social media that are stimulating and thought provoking. Diversity of women, having an identity and moving the needle on democratization with respect to fashion in particular but commerce in general is our mission!

We are looking for creative writers that can think outside the box, have a character in writing and can really build a quality message via a series of well written and engaging posts.

If you have a major in Journalism, Communication or Writing, this is the perfect opportunity you've been waiting for! You will work with a world class team - a co-founder who has been a guest writer on GigaOm and other popular places and a content editor who has previously been trained on digital content for a popular TV station.

We stand up for women's issues, we have opinions and we are not afraid to share it! Oh, along the way, we also believe style as a thing that models and fashionistas show and the others follow must change. Every individual deserves a personal experience when it comes to styling or even buying!

Responsibilities in content writing includes writing 2-3 blog posts a week, coming up with strategies for creative series and potentially also creating a shorter visual companion post for social media that projects the blog post.

Ideal candidates will have the following qualifications:

- Prior experience writing blog posts
- A passion for promoting strong, successful, independent women
- Capable of adopting an engaging "attitude" or "character" in their writing style
- Can write a spin on relevant current events that channels it within a theme or a series

Benefits & Perks: 

Shape your writing skills with some of the best creative minds in the industry and showcase your writing on our blog and social media pages!
