Update 2/17/16: The Meredith Corporation has just added two new apprenticeships to next year's Meredith Apprentice Program! In addition to the five editorial and three graphic design positions, two digital/social media apprenticeships are now available as well. The two students selected for the new apprenticeships will be writing copy for magazine websites, creating Web slide shows, writing social media posts and possibly creating video content.
The Greenlee School has a unique connection with Meredith Corporation. The Meredith Apprentice Program allows eight Iowa State students to work throughout the year as editorial or graphic design apprentices. Past apprentices have worked for Meredith publications including Better Homes and Gardens, Successful Farming, Diabetic Living and more. The Greenlee School is responsible for selecting students for the five editorial and three graphic design apprenticeships.
These paid apprenticeships offer real-world work experience and can be used for Greenlee students' JL MC 499 credit. Past apprentices have laid out pages, helped with photo shoots, taste-tested recipes, written stories and produced content for web and radio. In addition to experience, apprentices have tons of professional networking opportunities, which can help land your dream job. Former apprentices are now at E! News, Glamour, This Old House, Billboard, Men’s Journal and Martha Stewart Weddings.
