Boston magazine Careers and Freelance Opportunities

Employment Opportunities

For nearly 50 years, Boston magazine has been the center of influence when Bostonians are making quality of life decisions. We have several lifestyle brands that are at the centers of influence in our city through print content, digital stories, social media and events. Our hard-hitting, award-winning journalism examines the city’s most pressing issues and most powerful people, while respected franchises like Best of Boston and 50 Best Restaurants continue to drive the conversation. Our editors have their finger on the pulse of the city when it comes to breaking news, food, politics, health, real estate, events, business and culture. We also serve as a media agency by creating custom content and marketing campaigns for local and national brands. And our robust calendar of over 70 high-quality events annually—which range from a burger festival to a workout series— keep fans and partners connected to the best of what Boston has to offer.

Our Commitment to Diversity

We believe that different backgrounds and perspectives make us a better company. We celebrate diversity and are committed to creating an inclusive environment for all employees. Our goal is to have a staff that is representative of the communities we serve. We encourage applications from people of color, persons with disabilities, LGBT individuals and other groups historically underrepresented in the publishing and media industry. We do not discriminate against any applicant for employment on the basis of race, color, religion, sex, pregnancy status, gender identity, sexual orientation, national origin, age, disability or genetic information.

Is this the internship for you?

Our goal is to provide our interns with the most hands-on, practical training and experience in town. You will get exposure to many subject matter experts, be a part of professional trainings and meetings, and have an opportunity to pitch your new ideas while having lunch with the company’s top leaders. Whether you’re on-site at an event, analyzing our digital data metrics, or contributing content to our website or magazine, we expect you to bring new ideas and roll up your sleeves to complete them; your work will be diverse and impactful. This is a great opportunity for students who love to learn by doing, who are passionate about their work, and aren’t shy about trying something new. Academic credit is offered if your school permits it.

All interns must be current college/university students and must receive academic credit for their internship. Internships are unpaid.

Internship Requirements

We generally request 20 hours per week and can work with selected candidates to match your availability to our current projects. The internship description may specify cases in which other hours are expected. Internships are unpaid. Eligible interns must be currently enrolled in a postsecondary academic institution. High school students and rising college freshman are not eligible to apply.
