With our summer interns sadly preparing to bid TPG farewell, we’re looking to hire a new group of interns for the fall, to work out of our Lower Manhattan office in New York City. Don’t expect to be fetching coffee and running errands around the city — our interns walk away with real experience, including dozens of editorial clips and real-world marketing chops. We’ve also been know to offer some pretty fantastic travel perks.

Our internships pay well — $20 per hour — and offer a ton of hands-on time with the rest of our team. We do our best to make sure you’re getting excellent on-the-job experience in a fun, relaxed environment.

If you’re a college student (currently a sophomore, junior, senior or graduate student) who meets the requirements below, please email a resume and brief introduction to internships@thepointsguy.com. Please be sure to include the internship you’re applying for in the subject line (either EDITORIAL INTERN or MARKETING INTERN). Please also send along links to your social media accounts and any published work you may have.
