We're looking for hungry interns!

As an ever-growing website (in staffing and clothing sizes) we are looking for journalism, communications or marketing students chasing the opportunity to increase their portfolio with published articles of their creative writing. More specifically, we’re looking for people with:
  • Quirky writing styles
  • An impeccable eye for detail
  • A love for brownies, rose & going to lunch
  • Super creativity
  • Mad dishwashing skills (just kidding)
Working as a part of the Gourmand & Gourmet team, you’ll be tasked with the jobs of going to events (tough, we know), coming up with ideas for articles, contributing to social media schedules, working with the advertising department, conversing directly with the editor and content managers – and probably dining on a buttload of brownies. The internship will be 2 days a week for 3-6 months, with flexibility for uni and holidays. If you think you’ve got the (baked) goods to be a part of the team and can bring your own laptop, please send the following items to editor@gourmandandgourmet.com.au before May 20:
  • A cover letter
  • A copy of your resume
  • Your availability
  • A sample article
Why an article you ask?  We’d love to get a gauge on your writing abilities and style, because one thing we can guarantee you’ll be doing during your time as an intern at the G&G is a whole lot of writing! We don’t expect you to write us an essay, but we do want to see 200-300 words oozing personality with a catchy title and relevant images. Your topic could be:
  • The best brekky in Brisbane
  • The top 5 bars in Brisbane
  • Brisbane’s hidden gems you need to know about
You get the picture. Most importantly, be creative! If you need inspiration or a style guide of sorts, just take a browse through the articles on The Gourmand & Gourmet website. We look forward to receiving your application!
