Only those with a serious, professional and dedicated manner should apply.

IDEAL CANDIDATE:

Interns will learn the inner-workings of what goes into putting a magazine together from a marketing and sales perspective. The intern will be assigned tasks from the Marketing team, Sales Account Executives, and the Publisher. Internship duties vary greatly. Tasks include sales client research, client outreach, assisting with website content, Houston event research, and more. Interns will also have the opportunity to join us and assist with events throughout the year. Events are also another vital part of this internship and part of what the Marketing teams deliver for advertising clients. Interns will learn pre-event prep details, about event execution and all that is involved in delivering a great event, as well about a number of other factors that comprise post-event wrap up and deliverables. To apply, email your résumé and cover letter to Kristin Zaccaria: kzaccaria@modernluxury.com.
