Magazine Media Internships

We’ll help you identify internships on campus and in the local market — as well as in the industry’s top markets — that can jump-start your career while you’re still a student.

Magazine powerhouse Meredith Corporation, with headquarters in Des Moines, offers an apprenticeship program for Drake Magazine Media majors. And our powerful alumni network helps students land summer internships in New York, Chicago, Washington, D.C., and beyond. Students have worked at Texas Monthly, Paste, Cosmopolitan, Teen Vogue, New York magazine, Greater Des Moines Partnership, Principal Financial Group, Beautiful Savage Magazine, Seventeen, GQ, Good Housekeeping, Vitae Design Collective, Marie Claire, Missouri Coalition for the Environment and Indianapolis Monthly, among others.

With our own internship coordinator, we’ll help you find the right job.
