Social Media and Editorial Internship

The Trek is looking for a Social Media and Editorial Intern!

Love hiking, backpacking, and the outdoors? Want to work with USA TODAY’s Top Hiking and Outdoor Blog?

Come work with The Trek!

We are looking for someone who is passionate about social media, writing, marketing, and all things backpacking!  The chosen candidate will get the opportunity to flex their writing and marketing muscles in front of a large (and rapidly growing) audience and work directly under Zach Davis, Appalachian Trials author and editor-in-chief, and Maggie Slepian, a 2015 AT thru-hiker and the site’s Managing Editor.

The ideal candidate has:

– At least 1-2 years experiences with Facebook Pages, Twitter, and Instagram (Pinterest and Reddit a plus!)
– Experience using WordPress
– Strong writing skills
– A love for backpacking / hiking (not required, but definitely a bonus)

The work will require between 5-10 hours of work per week.  This is a remote internship (i.e. it can be done from anywhere in the world). The first two weeks of the internship will serve as a trial period to gauge if the candidate is the proper fit for our team.
