Are you our nextEditorial Intern?

Do you dream of being a writer? Do you like lots of creative freedom? Do you think you have what it takes to join DutchReview? Because we’re looking for a editorial intern that will kick butt (hopefully not ours).

First off, here are the details:

What?

As an editorial intern you will write articles on a daily basis: from the latest hotspots in Amsterdam or Rotterdam, to a cultural analysis about cheese or covering Dutch current affairs. You'll also assist with our massive social media presence.

When?

Straight away! Or at the start of a semester. For a minimum of at least 20 weeks, but longer would be better.
Got a different timeframe on your mind? Let us know when you’re reaching out 🙂

Where?

Throughout the whole country, of course - we’re reviewing the Dutch! However, our physical office is in Leiden at the innovative hotspot PLNT.
You'll work four days a week, with three days in our office.

COVID-19 UPDATE:

In an effort to help preserve human-kind, we are working from home much more — and writing more news than ever. Of course, we still meet up in the office a few times a month to water our plants, eat a bunch of food, and drink mediocre coffee.

I loved being a DutchReview intern. I got to write stories that interested me, learnt so much about SEO, and practiced running successful social media campaigns. I went on video shoots, reviewed amazing places, and got to pitch ideas to help DutchReview succeed. It gave my resume a huge boost, and I had a great time doing it!

FYI: we're only looking for the best

Is that you? Let's check...
  • You speak English at a native level, and it is absolutely and impeccably flawless
  • You've heard of Wordpress (and maybe even know what a CMS is!)
  • You follow, or followed, a relevant HBO or WO study (e.g. journalism, media & communications)
  • You like writing (obviously)
  • You are creative and full of ideas – we mean it when we say we really like independent thinkers!
  • You know an absurd amount about the Dutch, what makes them tick, and the life of expats in the Netherlands
  • You can work independently and deal with daily deadlines
  • You are fluent in social media and familiar with Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Youtube
  • You have your own laptop to work on
  • You live within commuting distance to our HQ in the stunning university town of Leiden

Do I get paid?

One word: yes. We said we were looking for the best, and we meant it.
You will receive €300/month, and we'll cover travel costs to and from the office.
There are also free events, access to prime hotspots and (occasionally) free cheese to review!

You got me, how do I apply?

Here are three easy steps

1) Shoot us an email

Please send a quick email to Work[at]DutchReview.com asking if the position is still open. We get a lot of requests and positions are often filled quickly.
Nonetheless, we are often looking for new talent so please enquire if you are interested!

2) Tell us why you're the best fit

Position still open? Great! Send your resumé and a motivation letter in true DutchReview tone (English, witty, not-so-formal and with links to your portfolio if you have one) to Work[at]DutchReview.com with the subject line 'Editorial Intern'.

3) Success? Next level

If we're interested, congrats - the game is on! We want to see how you can write, so we'll get you to craft a short, draft article. If all goes well, you'll be on your way to Leiden for a personal meeting!
