Yes, paid internship dreams do come true! You could spend your summer working in the Crushable office in New York City. If you’re obsessed with pop culture, addicted to television and devoted to celebrity stalking, then this is the internship for YOU!
Interns will be expected to write pieces (under their own byline), research, build galleries, possibly attend events, go crazy on tumblr and provide general assistance to editors. Prospective candidates must possess strong writing skills. Experience with WordPress is a plus. The ideal candidate is web-savvy, witty, organized and the go-to-entertainment-know-it-all among their friends.
College-aged or grad students in the Manhattan area are encouraged to apply, especially those with backgrounds in journalism.
We’re looking for smart candidates to begin in late May/Early June. So get those resumes, cover letters, and two writing samples to Jenni(.)Maier(@)Alloydigital.com by MARCH 1st. Please use the subject line CRUSHABLE SUMMER 2013 INTERNSHIP.
Oh alsooooo, your cover letter is a bonus 3rd writing sample, so don’t tell me anything boring about how your on-campus job taught you about leadership. Show me why we should hire YOU to be a Crushable intern.
Please make sure that your writing samples are written in the Crushable voice and resemble something you’d see on our homepage. While you probably write fabulous research papers, they don’t help us to see how wonderfully funny your writing can be. Also, don’t be shy about including any social media links!
Want to write for Crushable, but don’t have time to commit to an internship? We’re always on the hunt for talented writers who want to share their celebrity addiction with others! Submit the same writing samples to Jenni for your chance to be considered.

"When people ask them how I’m doing in New York, they finally have something remotely interesting to tell them. When my mom found my articles by looking me up on (as my dad calls it) “The Google”, he practically went into cardiac arrest. But when he asked me if I thought I’d need a business suit for interviews, I realized my parents weren’t just gushing over the premiere achievements of their chronically underachieving daughter. They were terribly, terribly confused: my parents think I’m famous.
At first I was going to stage a phone intervention and tell them that I am not, in fact, a celebrity. I’m a mere intern and a part-time student, there is nothing famous about that. But what kind of child would I be if I burst their bubbles of hope? And – not to be selfish - but the perks were unbelievable. It’s amazing what your parents think you need when you’re famous! For the first time they actually understood that when you’re important, cab fare and money for coffee every morning is not just a frivolous expense but a necessity - celebs are always on-the-go. And wouldn’t I need new clothes so that if the paparazzi ever caught me coming out of my house in the morning I wouldn’t look like a corpse? Of course, the paparazzi never comes to East Williamsburg because no one famous has to live in East Williamsburg…but they don’t know that.”
