The Content Strategy Internship provides the opportunity for students to gain knowledge and experience working in business-to-business media and association publishing with Naylor Association Solutions. Interns will work directly with Naylor’s Content Department to create quality publications for associations to use as a membership information and engagement tool. This will be done through editorial planning, content creation, copy editing and proofing. The goal of this program is to give interns relevant content and editorial experience so that they can compete in the current employment climate, while at the same time supporting the Naylor Content Team. This is an unpaid internship for the Summer 2019 semester.
