Freelance Editorial Internship Program


Who Are We?

A globally reputed academic business journal, California Management Review serves as a vehicle of communication between those who study management and those who practice it. We publish research-based articles that also address issues of current concern to managers.

CMR has recently featured articles on Open Innovation, Corporate Strategy, Social Issues in Management, Leadership and Human Resources Management, Intellectual Property Management, and Hybrid Organizations.

Our extensive catalog of reprints is used in university courses, executive programs, and management seminars around the world. All of our content is available across a variety of media and platforms, and is distributed in partnership with Harvard Business School Publishing. CMR is one of the journals used by the Financial Times to assess faculty research productivity at business schools. Based on our impact factor, CMR is also one of the most frequently cited management publications.

What is the Internship Program?

The LinkedInitiative, our 2015-2016 Marketing Strategy, is how we will implement our strategy by utilizing our professional social media platform of LinkedIn as the connection between our website and our social media. In the past, we have used our Facebook and Twitter posts to fuel the output of LinkedIn posts, but we, in our pilot program, are now switching to ensure that LinkedIn serves as the original source of marketing content and have Facebook and Twitter assist our publicizing. The CMR's marketing team is made up of: the online media editor, the social media manager, and the marketing editorial assistant, who will then supervise the research, work, and publication of the business articles published by interns who are students from UC Berkeley.

The Internship Program is part of our new initiative developed by CMR to:

  1. Increase content output
  2. Raise brand awareness
  3. Develop customer engagement and relations.

Intern Responsibilities:

  1. Develop interesting professional/business articles every other week.
  2. Attend marketing meetings and contribute to discussions about content strategy
  3. [Potential] Interview the most recent published issue's various authors on their research and write a blog
  4. Assist our marketing outreach efforts through personal social media

What Are the Benefits?

Since this Program is unpaid, we offer several perks to encourage students to participate:

  1. Work from home: Except for our bi-weekly meetings, we ask all interns to meet with the marketing team to discuss updates on our marketing progress and any new campaigns developed.
  2. Low commitment: We expect interns to contribute between 3-5 hours per week to research, write, and proofread their articles.
  3. Access to an enormous professional network: As a globally ranked business publication journal, we have a network of thousands of business professors, researchers, and managers from across the world. Most articles will be publicized through our social media platforms where we have thousands of people following us. However, select articles that fit the standard and professionalism of our journal will be released to our email network to the thousands of professionals.
  4. Flexibility: You have the power and choice to decide what topic you want to write about. Whether it is about a specific company, a trend, an industry, anything you want, you get to pursue your interests.
