Jobs & Internships


Dissent’s office in Manhattan has three internship terms each year: Spring, Summer, and Fall. Editorial interns at Dissent work closely with the staff and assist with the entire range of magazine work—fact checking, researching, formatting articles, fundraising, producing events, participating in editorial meetings, and so on.

Our interns have gone on to work everywhere from human rights organizations to literary agencies to magazines. If you have a particular interest, we encourage you to let us know.

The internship is part-time (16 hours/week) from January–May (Spring), May–September (Summer), September–December (Fall), and is paid at $16/hour. To apply please email with a cover letter explaining why you would like to work at the magazine and why you would be a good fit, a résumé, and a one-page response to a Dissent article (online or in print) of your choice. The application deadlines are November 20 (Spring), April 1 (Summer), and August 1 (Fall).
