TPG is Looking for Paid Fall Interns in New York

This summer we welcomed four fantastic interns in our New York office. They've had a chance to learn and write about the travel industry in New York and far beyond — one very lucky intern even got to spend a week on the road on TPG's dime. This fall, we'd like to offer similar opportunities to a new group of interns. We guarantee it'll be an adventure!

If you’re a college student (currently a sophomore, junior, senior or graduate student) who attends school in the greater New York City area and meets the requirements below, please email a resume and brief introduction, along with the internship you’re applying for, to internships@thepointsguy.com. Please also send along links to your social media accounts and any published work you may have.

TPG FALL INTERNS

The editorial intern will monitor travel industry news and brand announcements, research various topics and write daily news posts for the site with a quick turnaround time. The editorial intern will also work alongside the social media intern to review and respond to reader comments.

The social media intern will also work with writers and editors to evolve TPG’s social strategy, and will work alongside the editorial intern as well as the content and community manager to review and respond to reader comments.

How we chose these cards

Our points-obsessed staff uses a plethora of credit cards on a daily basis. If anyone on our team wouldn’t recommend it to a friend or a family member, we wouldn’t recommend it on The Points Guy either. Our opinions are our own, and have not been reviewed, approved, or endorsed by our advertising partners.
