LondonNet Editorial Internships
London is a busy place, it seems. Seven-or-so million people, and there are still more unique ideas popping up all over. Here at LondonNet, we like new ideas, which is why we employ interns.
Instead of pushing paper, sharpening your stapling skills, or dancing with the copier, you could be working on things that actually matter for your career. Like reporting on the wide array of arts & entertainment happenings all through out London. Our interns review films, clubs and theatre. They tease out quotes from some of London's most famous bartenders, and they report on the basics of whiskey tasting.
Our interns get experience doing the following:
Wow. Yeah. Lots of things to do, none of which include the words 'memo' or 'Tippex'. We consider this a large achievement, and we hope our interns appreciate it, too.
We don't take just any old poor soul, however. Our interns come from some of the best universities, both in the UK and abroad, and are nearing the end of their media or journalism coursework. They are irrepressible self-starters, brimming with ideas and excitement about living in the Big Smoke. More than this, they are social creatures, professional, and have a vested interest in some facet of arts & entertainment. Usually, their interest verges on obsession.
More specifically, we look for students who have the following skills & experience:
Sure, we like our interns. Sometimes so much that we'd prefer to keep them forever under the LondonNet wing. People move on, however, and we understand. We want big things in our interns' future, which is why we've created an internship programme that includes more than just a desk with a computer on it. We want them to experience London, enjoy it, and leave with both professional and life skills that will help them in the future. But don't just listen to us drone on and on -
Hear it from them:
"Being an intern at LondonNet affords the opportunity to get to know London outside of the realm of being a tourist. I have thoroughly enjoyed being able to see all parts of London while out on reviews, and doing it for free is obviously a plus. It has also given me a chance to broaden my mind, delving into a vast range of topics to review. From whiskey tasting, tattoo parlours, and theatre productions, the wealth of choices available is amazing. Overall, being an intern at LondonNet has proved to be a mostly stress-free, fruitful journey."

"Wow! Londonnet is absolutely the best place to work! But seriously, it's pretty cool. It's a great place to start an arts and entertainment career - they have connections to every sector of the industry. Restaurants, bars, clubs, theatre, movies, music, galleries...if you can think of it, the Londonnet moniker attached to your email address can probably get you in. Of course, it also takes a lot of hard work, advertising yourself, and endless "chasing" of PR people - but that's just business, baby. You gain invaluable knowledge in managing London transportation, writing, various entertainment mediums and working with a team. Being in London, there's no better place to live this kind of life. Londonnet, being a top hit on Google, makes it a pretty sweet place to visit when you're surfing on the web."
- Jackie Jou, University of California-Los Angeles
