I'd like to apply for your internship. I have absolutely no experience but I just marathoned every episode of the Newsroom so I feel like that qualifies me.
Yo, you guys know that there’s more to working here than watching a bunch of TV, right?
We know you’re joking, Matt, but in all seriousness: A lot of you are actually responding to our internship notice with messages like this! If you want to work for EW, though, you can’t just be a pop culture junkie — you also have to be a great writer and a great analyst of the culture you’re consuming. (Knowing how to conduct an interview doesn’t hurt either.) The ability to recite Mean Girls from memory is all well and good, but it’s not enough on its own.
