Yes, it is still winter, technically. But if you’re anything like us, you’re probably already planning your summer. Here at TPG, that includes hiring new interns for our Summer Points Protégé program. This is no ordinary go-fetch-us-coffee assignment; our protégés last year traveled way farther than Starbucks for us (ever been to Marrakesh, Belgrade or Dakar?). And many have gone on to become full-time staffers — let’s see, there’s Emily, Nick, Wallace…

Now we’re looking to fill four positions starting in May, across three departments: editorial, social media and marketing. If you’re interested in joining the team, you’ll need to apply through the links below. Below, a rundown of some of the perks of the gig:

  • We pay interns well — $20/hour and expect a (flexible) 40-hour week from staffers.
  • We treat interns like entry-level employees, not underlings.
  • We will soon be located in a large new headquarters in Manhattan.
  • We share an open, collaborative office space — no cubicles.
  • We’re dog-friendly — TPG mascots Hootie and Miles come to work several days a week.
  • And, of course, there’s that travel I mentioned already.

Note that all summer Points Protégés must be based in New York. Candidates should be entering their junior or senior year of college. For more details, read below or click on the links, which will take you to the application page:

Editorial: Lifestyle Writer / Points & Miles Writer

Editorial interns will monitor news, research travel-related topics and write daily news posts for the site — quick turnaround time often required. The intern also helps produce posts in WordPress (knowledge of Photoshop is appreciated) and works alongside the social media team to review and respond to reader comments. Requirements: experience writing/editing for a college news website or other magazine/newspaper/site, and ability to work in a fast-paced environment.

Marketing: Events & Partnership Coordinator

The marketing intern will assist in the development and implementation of all TPG events, branded partnerships, press strategy, TPG personal appearances and non-profit initiatives. Reporting to the VP of Marketing and Communications, the role also reports into the Director of Marketing and Compliance and will assist with daily activities as required by the department. Time commitment: minimum 15 (up to 40) hours per week with flexible hours from our NYC office.

Social Media: Pinterest Intern

For this internship, the primary focus will be rebooting our Pinterest account: performing competitive audits, gathering industry best practices, suggesting creative direction, compiling existing assets, assigning KPIs and relevant analytics tracking, and developing overall strategy. Yes, you must work from our NYC office.

We’ll be making our hiring decisions later this month, so apply now or send this post to someone you know who might fit the bill. I look forward to seeing some of you in the new office.
