With multiple opportunities, we offer a variety of internships each semester/quarter:
Web Editor Internship
The web design team is looking for a tech savvy interactive designer to assist with the creation of online content.

Our production manager is looking for a detail-oriented, Excel-savvy, reliable self-starter with uncanny organizational skills to work on our magazine content. Primary responsibilities include fact checking through phone calls, email, and internet; researching contact information; managing databases; and proofing. Phone shy applicants need not apply.

You will see first-hand how special sections and sponsorship opportunities are developed, as well as the follow through of generating income and end product. This is a great internship for a business management student.

Knowledge of QuickBooks, excel, and ability to learn proprietary accounting software is important. A passion for ensuring correct data entry is vital in this internship.
ORIENTATION AND HOURS:
Each intern will complete a full day orientation in Oak Harbor with an opportunity to meet other interns and the other DNN employees.

Weekly meetings also keep interns informed and provide an opportunity to stay up-to-date with the company. The internship is part time, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., five days a week (though hours are flexible to work with class schedules).
Interns are selected on their completed application and their interest in their chosen internship. Completion of Sophomore level English/Writing class is preferred.
Upon successful completion of Internship, interns will have the potential for a scholarship from the Oceans of Possibilities non-profit organization as well as hiring potential within the company based on performance.
At the end of the internships, students will be asked to submit a written report on their experience and will be asked if they have any suggestions for the program.
Please send a cover letter indicating your interest in Dive News Network Media Group and describing your career goals, why this internship would be beneficial to you, and why you are qualified to help in the chosen department.

Who We Are:
A network of regional scuba diving magazines, both print and online, that link consumers and businesses together.
Our Mission (What We do):
Our mission is to promote the sport of scuba diving by producing a quality Print and Internet publication that inspires divers to be more active in the sport – locally.
Local divers dive more often. They purchase more dive gear and go on more trips. They also travel more. By listening to our readers we grow the sport of diving, and invite new divers into the "family".
We distribute our magazine to every dive retailer in our region. They hand it out and staple their business card to it, recommending it. The magazine promotes them and their area.
We network consumers and businesses together.
Our magazine represents the local dive community to consumers and helps them become more active in the sport. It is, essentially, a listing of “who’s who in the zoo” if you are not listed, you are not a player.
Cost effective Advertising
Our rates are reasonable compared to other publications, yet our circulation is targeted toward the local, regional active dive community creating a GREAT VALUE.
We offer Target Marketing of an important customer – Active Divers.
Our readers are NEW and ACTIVE divers who are in dive stores now. Active divers dive locally, more often and go on more trips. They self identify as divers, not just people who dive.
We are a Valuable Resource for the local dive community.
As the only scuba magazines in our region, we represent our dive community to the world. Our magazines are a resource to new and active divers to find out what is happening. They are active participatory readers – VERY VALUABLE!
Build Awareness & Better Relationships with Decision Makers
Our magazines are read by dive shop owners, instructors and staff member as well as consumers. WE often have industry stories where they are mentioned or they have written. These decision makers are customers who buy equipment or travel to resell. Are you helping them stimulate demand locally? Are you rewarding your present dealers? Are you encouraging new ones to call? Are you advertising with us?
Established Trust and Credibility in the Market Place
We produce the most respected regional magazines in the country. Our magazine is full of entertaining stories written by local divers and then professionally edited, so that we can inspire others to dive more often. Our readers, both print and online, are community members who respect our opinion.
Dive & Travel Expo
We also produce two highly successful Dive and Travel Expos - one in the Seattle area, and the other in the beautiful Santa Clara, CA region. For more information, see www.diveandtravelexpo.com.
