The Everygirl is looking for summer interns! We promise there will be movie nights and cocktails and occasional meltdowns and girl talk all under a canopy of work, of course.


sometimes we look like this.

and sometimes we feel like this.

but in the end it's always fun and we love what we do.

so why not join in the fun?


Position: Super duper graphics wizard intern
Company: The Everygirl
Location: Chicago, IL
Responsibilities: You’ll get to see the inside workings of the internet’s most recent phenomenon: The Everygirl. Some have even called it the next Facebook of our lady generation. And you get the chance to work with Alaina and Danielle this summer to see how it all comes together!
Or something like that.
Ok, for real. Here’s the deal. We need some help. Those pretty features you see every day don’t appear with a sprinkle of fairy dust, and we want your kick-butt graphics skillz to help make them beauuuutiful!
Compensation: This internship can be applied toward school credit.
Qualifications: Applicants must be proficient in the Adobe Creative Suites—no if’s, and’s, or but’s. We can train you on the editorial side of things. And while graphic design or journalism majors are preferred, neither of us went to school for graphics and both do it for a living, so we will definitely let this slide if you know what you’re doing when we put an iMac in front of you and crack open a window. If you have a knack for wordsmithing, even better. You must be available to come in and work at least three days a week, and we require that—generally speaking—you are a nice person. After all, Everygirls are nice girls.
How to Apply: E-mail your resume, a link to your portfolio, and cover letter about why you want to work with The Everygirl to internship@theeverygirl.com WITH THE SUBJECT LINE “SUMMER GRAPHICS INTERN.” Applicants without this subject line will not be considered. And pretty please do not attach samples of your work. We need to be able to click over and view your portfolio online (our computers have too many files on them as it is)!
Must Apply By: Saturday, May 26
Start Date: ASAP
Position 2: Social media/writing intern extraordinaire
Company: The Everygirl
Location: Chicago, IL
Responsibilities: Whether it’s features, blog posts, or witty lil’ captions for our social media, we need someone who is passionate about stringing together words and wants to lend a hand. This intern will be largely responsible for managing our daily newsletter, our social media, and jumping in whenever we need someone to put together an intro to a feature the night before it goes up. Oh, the fun world of daily journalism…
Compensation: This internship can be applied toward school credit.
Qualifications: Applicants must be grammar enthusiasts with a good sense of humor. English, creative writing, or journalism majors are preferred, but we’ll look past that if you make us laugh. If you know your way around the Adobe Creative Suites, even better. You must be available to come in and work at least three days a week, and we require that—generally speaking—you are a nice person. After all, Everygirls are nice girls. Experience with Mailchimp is a plus. Oh, and you must have Twitter and know your way around social media in general. Or we might just react like this.
How to Apply: E-mail your resume, a link to your portfolio (can be a blog with noteworthy posts highlighted), a link to your Twitter account, and cover letter about why you want to work with The Everygirl to internship@theeverygirl.com WITH THE SUBJECT LINE “SUMMER WRITING INTERN.” Applicants without this subject line will not be considered. And pretty please do not attach samples of your work. We need to be able to click over and view your portfolio online (our computers have too many files on them as it is)!
Must Apply By: Saturday, May 26
Start Date: ASAP
Just a heads up, we can only contact those being considered! We really wish that wasn’t the case, and thank you in advance for your interest in working with The Everygirl!

  3. Oh I wish I could :/ I hate being an "adult" and having bills to pay. I would totally do it if it weren't for the fact that I'd still have to pay for my apartment here in Arkansas and one in Chicago. *sigh*
