Job Description
Jen Bekman Projects is looking for interns to assist with projects for 20x200, Hey, Hot Shot!® and Jen Bekman Gallery. This is a great opportunity for someone looking to learn more about innovation in the art business. You’ll be an integral part of our team, making lasting contributions to Jen Bekman Projects while honing your particular interests and skills. We’d love it if you had some experience in an office and/or gallery environment, but what’s most important to us is that you’re smart, polished, motivated and as excited about art as we are.

The Work
At JBP we all wear a lot of hats, so if you are interested in a general art/business internship, we’d welcome your diverse set of skills and interests. Please know, as well, that we’re a small, startup staff and everyone tackles tasks that are often above but sometimes below our respective skill sets, and you will be expected to do the same. So be ready to roll up your sleeves if the job calls for it.

We currently have openings in the following areas:

  • 20x200 – Provide operational support for print and web production, social media and fulfillment; support the research needs of the curatorial team, create artist dossiers for upcoming 20x200 editions, maintain and update artist wiki.
  • Jen Bekman Gallery – Working directly with our gallery director on press releases, blogging, site maintenance and, most importantly, handling and installing art.
Who We Are
Jen Bekman Projects (JBP) uses the power of the internet to bring the value and joy of collecting art to a wider audience than has ever been possible. JBP consists of three programs: 20x200 is the pioneering website that offers curated, limited-edition art at ridiculously affordable prices; Hey, Hot Shot! is a critically-acclaimed international photography competition that discovers, recognizes and promotes photographers at all stages of their careers; and the Jen Bekman Gallery exhibits photography, works on paper, paintings and mixed media.

The Person We're Looking For
  • Is organized, preferably obsessively so.
  • Has a background, or at the very least a keen interest, in fine art, photography and design.
  • Is intelligent and enthusiastic. You possess a sense of humor.
  • Is reliable. You stick to your commitments and are dedicated to making it work.
  • Is motivated: You’re ready to take charge and find the resources you need to get the job done.
  • Has a way with words. Grammar, spelling, style—we want it all!
  • Is internet savvy. Flickr is your friend. You’re no stranger to Facebook, you read way too many blogs, and maybe you even have one of your own.
  • Is handy. Know your way around a hammer, a level, a cordless drill? How about a paintbrush? We love you.
Requirements
Interns must work a minimum of two days. Gallery interns must be available on the weekend as well, and we do not offer weekend-only internships. Dual 20x200/Jen Bekman Gallery internships are not available. This is an unpaid position, but we’ll supply you with a monthly unlimited MetroCard for each month of your internship. We’re also happy to do any necessary paperwork if you’re doing a for-credit internship.

We’re at the 20x200 office from 9:30 a.m.–6 p.m., Monday through Friday. Jen Bekman Gallery hours are Wednesday through Sunday from noon–6 p.m., but we often have after-hours events that you may be required to attend.

How to Apply
Send us an email! It’s super important that you follow the guidelines below, and include your cover in the body of the email:

  • Tell us what you’re looking for in an internship, and what you find particularly appealing and/or interesting about Jen Bekman Projects.
  • Use the subject line: “JBP Intern, Last Name, First Name” and send your email to jobs@jenbekmanprojects.com.
  • Let us know your preferred start date and which days/times you’d be available. (Make sure this works with our hours as described above.)
  • Let us know if you’re interested in working at Jen Bekman Gallery or in the 20x200 office—or both! And, which of the above areas you’re most excited about.
  • Include your resume. (That can be an attachment, but remember, your cover letter goes in the body of the email.)
  • Also include a link to your website or examples of design, blog posts or anything else you’ve created that you think we should see.
Please don’t be terribly formal. That’s boring. And yes, we’re picky—boilerplate covers go straight to the circular file. Be original! Also, like we said above, the guidelines are important—be sure to follow them.
