The Smart Sites is home to several editorial websites including HolidaySmart.com, where everyday is a Holiday! We love to celebrate and share holiday information across the globe and our mission is to Unite the World through Holidays.

We are offering editorial internships to a select number of people who are excited about holidays and observances and about building a future in writing.

This internship is a virtual 6 month unpaid program where you will build an online portfolio of your writing, learn from our editorial team and gain experience as a writer. After 6 months, we will evaluate your performance and content and may consider long-term opportunities. Looking for college credit? We can help with that as well.

We understand everyone has busy lives, so we try to make it as easy as possible for our interns to write for us while attending school or a second job by writing when it is convenient in your own space. While we are all about celebrating and having fun, we do expect a high degree of commitment and deadlines to be met.
