GlobetrotterGirls Internship Program
Are you interested in working with an online travel publication and learning the ins and outs of what it takes to create a brand and blog network online? Are you passionate about travel and location independence? Can you impress us with your ideas and make us laugh at the same time? We are looking for interns with passion and personality to join or team for nine-week, twelve-week or six-month internships.
An internship with GlobetrotterGirls Media will allow those interested in online start-ups, professional blogging and location independence the opportunity to experience first hand how to work with advertisers, how to grow a blog/website network for increased ad revenues, how to set up and run a podcast, as well as writing opportunities, social media marketing opportunities, and the opportunity to apply SEO techniques and other on page and off page marketing techniques to increase organic search traffic. How much or how little of most of these categories is entirely up to you.
***Interested interns should be passionate about travel as well as about how to create an online, blog-based business***
***Native English or near-native English fluency required***
On a more concrete level, interns have the possibility to work in the following areas:
1. Content production for our entire blog network (4 sites, total).
2. Search Engine Optimization, both on-page and off-page / Traffic growth (basic training available).
3. Online advertising – lead generation (possible $$ commission available)
4. Multimedia work including podcast editing and uploading and possibly video creation (if particular intern is interested in this area only).
5. Social Media Marketing and account management
The GlobetrotterGirls are Dani and Jess, a German-American duo who have been traveling the world since 2010. GlobetrotterGirls.com began as ‘just a travel blog’, a place for Jessica to showcase writing skills and Dani to publish her travel photography. As time has gone on, however, we have created one of the top 100 Travel Blogs according to Google and have been able to turn the travel blog into an online travel publication that earns solid revenue and affords us our location independent lifestyle. (Read more about us here.)
However, after almost three years growing the website, we are taking the brand to the next level this year. As an intern with us, you will have the opportunity to take part in a period of major growth of an online travel publication, giving you key skills and experience in a variety of areas related to running an online business – with total location independence.
There is no office to go to and no need to ask for vacation days as you can work from wherever you want.
All we ask for is between 10-20 hours per week, depending on your level of commitment.
You will have the opportunity to choose which you would like to be in charge of.
We trust and respect you enough to participate in decision-making and influence the steps we take toward building our brand in 2013 and beyond.
We require a full application process including a CV/resume and cover letter.
