As part of Rogers Publishing Ltd., all FLARE job postings can be found on the Rogers careers page.
There isn’t a direct route to a career at FLARE. The educational and work experiences of our staff are varied. We suggest you follow the path that will best prepare you for your field of choice. Do you want to be a fashion editor? A styling certificate might be the way to good. Are you hoping to become a staff writer? There are many fantastic journalism schools to choose from.
By keeping the end goal in mind, you can cater your experiences to build a FLARE-friendly portfolio. And we highly suggest internships and volunteer work to help build your knowledge base.
Again, the courses you should take depend on the route you wish to pursue. Most FLARE positions involve writing and copy editing, so journalism courses are highly recommended. If you are pursuing art direction, you need a strong sense of design.
Do the research ahead of time. Get a thorough background on the course you are signing up for and understand how you will benefit from it. Also ensure that you are receiving the most up-to-date knowledge, particularly when it comes to computer software. Be aware of the industry standards.
FLARE internships run in 3 month time periods. If you have 2-3 days a week that you can dedicate to working at FLARE, please submit your resume and cover letter to the appropriate editor.
Please note that internships typically begin in September, January, and April/May, so we recommend that you submit your inquiry in advance of those start times, however resumes are accepting year round and kept on file.
We are seeking hard working, dedicated interns who have a strong interest in publishing and a passion for fashion.
Our interns come from a variety of schools all across the world. We are not affiliated with any institutions in particular, however please note that we do not accept high school students.
Unfortunately we do not offer job shadowing.
Portfolios are accepted for review the first day of every month. Please bring your work to our offices at One Mount Pleasant Rd., Toronto, Ontario, to the attention of the art department.
We have many established freelance writers whom we work with regularly. If you would like your idea considered for publication, please forward a strong story pitch to the appropriate section editor. If you have not worked with us before, include writing samples, but please be mindful of file sizes.
FLARE works with a number of reputable agencies to ensure that we are using the best hair/makeup artists in the business. If you are an independent artist, we highly suggest that you approach an agency regarding representation.
All models for FLARE magazine are booked through reputable modeling agencies and offices. Without exception, no individual employee, photographer, or agent will ever cold-call potential models directly on behalf of FLARE-whether by telephone, e-mail, Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr or anywhere online. FLARE representatives will never contact you to request personal information related to working at FLARE. Look for open calls in your area or approach an agency directly about representation. Please do not send model portfolios directly to our editors—they will not be considered.
Most stylists begin with a strong sense of fashion and go from there. There are styling certificate programs at the college and university level, but perhaps the best experience you can get is through an internship. Approach an established stylist and offer your services. Get noticed for your unique style. The fashion world is small. If you have a strong work ethic and a great sense of style, the word will spread.
Please note that at FLARE styling is done internally.
We are open to meeting with designers and viewing new collections. Please have your PR representative contact the appropriate section editor to set up a deskside review or email and look book/press kit. The same applies to beauty and health products.
Please note that due to the volume of requests, we cannot accommodate all interview requests.
Where to buy information is listed in the stylesource guide at the back of every issue.
