TEDx Applications Intern

TEDx is growing rapidly. The TEDx Applications Team receives over 100 applications every week from amazing individuals who want to organize TEDx events. In order to quickly assess them we need to get certain information, fast.

Your primary responsibility will be to help our team review applications against specific criteria. This involves a great deal of web work: you will need zealous attention to detail and a defiant attitude towards repetition.

A few skills you can expect to practice or learn: web research, interview skills, fact checking, systems management and the ability to express a succinct opinion that informs decisions.

The requirements:

  • You must be able to work in our Manhattan office 10am-6pm, five full days each week.
  • You must be able to quickly learn new processes, and how to use new Mac software.
  • Global mindset/perspective
  • Multi-lingual preferred but not required.

As we anticipate many applications for this position, we will look for a clear, concise statement within your cover letter addressing the following question: when was an occasion you went to extraordinary lengths to learn something, and why?

Due to the high volume of applications, only considered candidates will be notified.

This is a paid 6-month internship position with the possibility of extension, based at our NYC office. Only candidates applying within the greater NYC metro area will be considered. Telecommuting is not possible.
