One Story has an exciting opportunity for a rising college senior or class of ’22 grad: a paid apprenticeship.
This position is ideal for a young person who hopes to work in the publishing or non-profit sector. They are specifically seeking applicants from backgrounds traditionally underrepresented in the publishing industry.
This is an opportunity to gain valuable skills and forge connections with peers and potential employers. In addition to experience gained from day-to-day tasks, the apprentice will receive specialized training in marketable skill sets such as design and production, project management, social media and marketing, proofreading and copyediting, online pedagogy best practices, and others.
The goal is for the apprentice to leave their time with One Story with industry connections and a diverse and varied set of skills that will make their resumes stand out to future employers. The apprenticeship runs from September 2022 to May 2023.
The time commitment for this position is 15 hours a week. An exact schedule will be determined upon hiring, but the apprentice should expect to spend at least one full day a week in the office, with the rest of the work done remotely. They will receive regular performance reviews to help ensure that they are getting the most out of the experience. They should reside within commuting distance of our office in Gowanus, Brooklyn.
The apprentice will be paid stipend totaling $10,000 for the 9 month period.
Applications are due May 16th. For more information, and to apply, visit their website.
