goop Internships

Goop is one of the rare places on the web where food, shopping, and mindfulness collide; where the ever-evolving intent is to make every choice count. Launched in the fall of 2008 out of Gwyneth Paltrow’s kitchen, goop was originally conceived as a weekly e-mail newsletter. Now, goop has become a place for GP to introduce some of the incredible experts who have mentored her throughout her life to a wider audience, and a place where readers can find suggestions about where to shop, eat, and stay from a trusted friend—not from an anonymous, crowd-sourced recommendation engine.

Goop is looking for organized, motivated interns to join us in our Santa Monica and NYC offices for the Spring semester. This is an unpaid internship for school credit only, and candidates must commit 12-20 hours per week. To apply, please send a cover letter and resume to interns@goop.com, including the name of the internship you are applying for in the subject of the email. Applications for Spring 2018 will be accepted through September 30th and applications for Spring 2019 are currently being accepted through January 30th. Thank you!
