YES! Magazine provides internships for qualified individuals in the editorial departments (both print and online), the education department, and the media and outreach department. Each internship offers a valuable work experience in a supportive and motivating work environment.
Here is our current crop of amazing interns:
Originally from Denver, Colorado, Liza recently graduated from Wesleyan University in Connecticut with a degree in English and Government. Before landing at YES! Magazine, she spent summers working in Washington, D.C. and Boulder, Colorado as well as traveling and studying abroad in South America. She worked closely with Wesleyan's Center for Prison Education, an initiative offering college courses in two Connecticut state prisons, and is passionate about education and justice reform. Liza is excited to stalk her favorite soccer stars on the streets of Seattle and explore the outdoor opportunities of the Pacific Northwest. She hopes to make it up Mount Rainier sometime soon.
From Oakland, this is Jaime's first adventure in the Pacific Northwest. Heh has written for several local newspapers in the Bay Area, and covered homelessness, crime, local business, and other topics. Previously, he worked as an editorial assistant at Bonnier Publishing, where he contributed to pieces in Popular Science, Popular Mechanics, and Popular Photo. He also interned at California magazine, the alumni magazine at the University California, Berkeley, where he went to school.
Hailing from Portland, Oregon, Olivia has always called the Pacific Northwest home. She graduated from Seattle University with a degree in Journalism where she wrote for her school newspaper, The Spectator, and interned with the Seattle Weekly. When she's not writing, she enjoys singing, dabbling in guitar, and like every other PNW native, yes, hiking.
