If you like fashion or beauty and want to see how magazines are produced in Canada, ELLE is a great placement. The office location is easily accessible by TTC, and if you drive, there are paid parking spots nearby.
As for the type of work you’ll be doing, it’s a lot of fact-checking and transcribing. If you don’t like doing those, this might not be for you. You are also encouraged to pitch story ideas for web, and the editors are very helpful and give amazing feedback.
In addition, you get to learn about how to deal with PR, source credits, and other useful information about the fashion and beauty industry.
Also, the team is super friendly, so for anyone who thinks working at ELLE will be reminiscent of The Devil Wears Prada, trust me, it’s not.
