Frequently asked questions

MAGAZINE COPIES

I want to get magazine copies. How?

  • ONLINE
    If you want to read us on your desktop computer or carry STATUS everywhere in your iPad/iPhone/etc., check statusmagonline.com/digital-magazine to get STATUS via Zinio.com. You can even get past issues for free.
  • BACK ISSUES
    Ask the store staff (see no. 1) because they sometimes have them in stock, but they may not be on the rack anymore. Otherwise, you can call up Greyone Social or Trilogy Boutique at (#) when they’re available. E-mail info@statusmagonline.com (subject: past issues), and we’ll se if we have any left in the office.
  • SUBSCRIPTION
    We’re working on the subscription process, and we’re pretty sure you’ll be first to know when it happens. Then again, you could always download our latest issue at our website, statusmagonline.com/digital-magazine.

INTERNSHIPS

How can I be an Intern?

We want interns who are street- and book-smart, well-versed with youth culture, and determined. If you think you’re fit, e-mail rita.faire@statusmagonline.com for Features, zoelaurente@statusmagonline.com for Fashion, and patrickjamora@statusmagonline.com for Art. Tell us why you want to be a part of our team and why you’re the perfect intern for us. Of course, you need to include your resume and STATUS-related sample articles/artwork.

As an intern, you are expected to:

  • Come at least 3 working days per week.
  • Assist us with pull-outs and shoots
  • Write for our magazine and blog
  • Create artwork/assist with layout
  • Promote our magazine along with other marketing duties

In return, we provide you with a real-life understanding of how a publication works, and you get to work with some of the coolest, most creative people locally and internationally. Of course, there are more perks as well–but be prepared to work really hard.
