The primary responsibility of interns in the Editorial Department include: transcribing the interviews that appear in the magazine; up-to-the-minute media research (this will include contact with publicists); updating and maintaining databases and filing systems; and critical written evaluations of current and upcoming releases in all areas of popular culture.

Transcribing experience is a definite plus, as is knowledge of Microsoft Office and American pop culture (film, music, art, literature and fashion).
