Internship in Boulder, Colorado for Backpacker Magazine

Posted: March 2, 2017

We’re looking to expand the pool of candidates for our summer internship position this year, and I thought I would reach out to you and see if there might be any students who would be interested in spending part of the summer in Boulder. We don’t pay, so any candidates should be aware they would need to make their own arrangements for housing, but we do look for students who would earn credit for their work here. We’re in the midst of overhauling our website and digital editions, and in the next couple of months, we’ll also be introducing a partial redesign of the print magazine, so there will be plenty of projects, both print and digital, for an intern this summer. And of course, there would also be time to get outside and enjoy everything Boulder and Colorado have to offer.

If any students are interested, they can email me a résumé and 3-5 samples of their work at
