Happy 2013, everyone! Does your resolution list say "Get an internship at The Stranger"? Then you're in luck! I'm looking for a new music calendar intern who will help me stay sane and organized!
First thing worth noting, it is an unpaid internship. But if you're in school, it's possible to get credit (if your school does that sort of thing—I'll happily sign off on it). The internship is about 12 hours a week, with the days and times flexible during the usual Mon-Fri/9-5 office hours, and it requires a three-month commitment.
I'm looking for someone who is organized and reliable, has a lot of enthusiasm for the local music scene, and knows how to use a computer. (We mostly use Macs in the office.)
* Help keep our online music calendars updated. * Compile music news posts for Line Out. * Possibly assist on other music-related tasks like sorting CDs/mail, etc. * Get free cupcakes because I bake a lot and bring treats into the office. * Never ever ever have to bring anyone coffee.
You might be able to:
*Post other things to Line Out, too, like show and record reviews, thoughts on whatever you're listening to, videos of cats playing the drums, etc. *Get free tickets to shows in exchange for show reviews! *Tell me bad jokes that I will laugh at because I pretty much laugh at anything!
If you have a laptop, that's a bonus because a couple of our computers are slow, but it's absolutely not required.
If you're interested, e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org and tell me why you want to do it and why you'd be good at it in 10 sentences or less! (Brevity is awesome.) And, if possible, send a link to a writing sample or two. If you don't have one, that's okay! No published writing is required. In that case, just write 150 words or so about an album you really love (or hate!), as if it were a blog post.
