Ever Dreamed Of Writing For The Automotive Industry?

Automotive editorial interns will have the opportunity to author technical content to appear online and in print.

Babcox Media is looking for a paid intern from an automotive technology program who is currently pursuing an associate’s degree.

Interns will have the opportunity to author technical content that will appear online and in print.  This internship opportunity is from January thru March 31, 2021, and may be expanded as needed/requested. This is a paid internship program that allows students to earn course credit upon completion of the program.

Here’s the catch – we’re located in Akron, Ohio. A reliable vehicle or other form of transportation is required and we don’t provide relocation assistance.

But if you’re in the Northeastern Ohio area and want to jump right into the deep end with regard to digital, video and print communications, we might be just what you’re looking for.

  • Able to use a digital camera to take photos of vehicle components and procedures;
  • Knowledge of inner workings of an automotive repair shop or dealership service department;
  • Ability to use word processing and email programs; and
  • All tools are provided by Babcox Media.

Desired Skills:

  • Passion for repairing and working on automobiles and light trucks;
  • Able to follow industry safety procedures for lifting vehicles and equipment usage;
  • Strong AP writing skills;
  • Desire to become an aftermarket professional or shop owner; and
  • A consumer of automotive content online.

Duties of Internship:

  • Working with the video and print staff on creating visual content;
  • Working with editors on researching and authoring articles and scripts;
  • Posting technical content online; and
  • Organization of digital assets databases.

This is an hourly, non-exempt position for purposes of federal wage and hour law. Hours are Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. until 4:30 p.m. We have the ability to work with a student’s schedule but would like to have the intern at Babcox Media in three- to four-hour blocks of time. Interested candidates should apply directly to our Technical Content Intern job posting at http://www.babcox.com/careers/ or you may email your resume and cover letter to [email protected]

Babcox Media is the B2B leader in the auto care, tire, performance, commercial trucking, dealership, powersports and enthusiast markets, staffed with forward-thinking, innovative, and thoughtful content creators.

Were Things Better When They Were Simpler?  

Getting nostalgic about the good old days is easy, but many forget the struggles of the day.

Last month, I purchased a 1982 Chrysler New Yorker for $1,500. The car was previously owned by a technician who was moving to Arizona. It had 67,000 original miles. It would be my “beater with a heater” for this winter.

Under the hood is a 318 V8 with a Lean Burn feedback carburetor with a rudimentary engine control module attached to the air cleaner. The system could adjust the spark advance, change metering in the carburetor and even open a solenoid to vent the evaporative emissions from the fuel tank.
