Editorial Intern @ The Plunge

 

Who Are We?

We’re Your (Unofficial) Best Man, the definitive site for guys who are taking the plunge and getting married. The premise is simple: there are a million websites, magazines, and books for brides, but almost nothing for grooms. If a man wants advice about getting married, he has nowhere to turn. We’re here to change that. We talk to grooms in a language they can understand, surprising and entertaining them while giving them access to highly helpful information and some unexpected ideas.

This role is an exciting opportunity to participate in the editorial operations of a lifestyle content site, writing and reporting on a range of subjects (fashion, travel, relationships, weddings).
