Canadian Geographic wants you!

Canadian Geographic, the country’s fourth most-read magazine, takes on interns throughout the year at our head office in Ottawa. Duties for editorial interns include writing for the magazine, website and blog, fact-checking articles, research and story development as well as participation in editorial meetings.

Unfortunately, our internships are unpaid, but they will give you meaningful, fulfilling work experience, insight into the inner workings of an internationally-acclaimed 80-year-old magazine published by a not-for-profit society, and a head start on your career in the magazine industry.

Length of internships range from one to four months, and aren’t necessarily five days a week or eight hours a day (although preference is given to applications who can commit to full-time or near-full-time hours). We prefer students with either experience or interest in the environment, wildlife, history, culture and science journalism. While experience at journalism school is helpful, other candidates will be considered.

To apply, email [email protected] and send a cover letter, resume, three writing samples — or links to your photo/multimedia work, if applicable — and indicate what time period you’re available.
