Tribeza is put together monthly by a small but mighty team. Our interns are an important part of that team and given hands-on meaty projects. And as you ace them, more will be joyfully teed up for you. The print publication is the mother ship, but our online and social media presence is growing by leaps and bounds. We have a few openings for college interns who have talents in one or more of the following areas:

• graphic design, photography, videography

• writing, copy editing, social media

• special events, photo shoot coordination, community and advertiser outreach

These internships are a warm, snug fit for those who are curious, take initiative, love all things Austin, pack a wicked sense of humor, know how to dig up the arcane prop or stat, and can credibly imitate B-list celebrities when the situation requires.* You need to be able to commit 10 to 15 hours per week for the entire fall semester, including some evening and weekend availability for Tribeza events. Interns will need to bring their personal laptops.

If you are interested, please send your resume and a cover letter explaining why you want to intern at Tribeza and what mad skills you will bring.
