What: The literary scouting office for Fox 2000/Twentieth Century Fox is looking for interns to read and share opinions on books, as well as assist us with general administrative tasks (phones, copying, database entry, etc). They cover the literary world for our studio, meaning they read books to determine whether they’re suitable for big screen adaptation. Interns are a critical part of their day-to-day functioning — the more they demonstrate they can do, the more they get to do. It’s a great way to learn a very interesting business and to make contacts and get your foot in the door in a very competitive field.
Requirements: Undergrad in the New York area; able to work 1 or 2 days a week from 10am – 6:30 pm (current openings on Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday); must be a strong reader, avid filmgoer, and most importantly be able to think critically and articulate yourself clearly with regard to books. It would be best if you were an English major or film major and wanted a career in the film or publishing business. Office experience is not necessary, but common sense and the ability to learn quickly is. It is a fast-paced office and that deals with high level executives in a high stakes environment, so they need their interns to be reliable, conscientious, hard workers.
To Apply: Send a short cover letter and a resume ASAP to firstname.lastname@example.org. In the cover letter, tell us briefly why you want the internship and summarize what relevant experience you may have. They are looking for someone who can work 1-2 full days a week and can start immediately.
