The American Society of Magazine Editors sponsors the Magazine Internship Program—a ten-week program for rising college seniors at magazines in New York and Washington. ASME interns are working journalists. ASME interns are temporary employees of the magazine they are assigned to and are paid a minimum of $350 a week before deductions. ASME interns are responsible for their own travel, housing, meals and personal expenses. ASME interns report, edit, fact-check and copy-edit for print and online publications. They may sometimes interview celebrities, attend press conferences and work the red carpet—but most of the summer they do the un-glam but essential work of magazine journalism.
