Be Gizmodo's New York Intern

Illustration for article titled Be Gizmodos New York Intern

I'm going to need someone to prop up my iPad while I play Xbox on my phone and drink coffee, so we need some more interns in New York City.

But this time, we're looking for a few different kinds of interns. Four different kinds, to be precise:

Writing Intern: Your main task assisting with writing posts, but with a secondary focus on all the other intern duties as outlined here.


Promotion Intern: Great for people who like to talk to other people. We'll teach you how to promote our stories on Digg, Twitter, Facebook and other social networks. You should know how to angle stories a certain way, and be familiar with social networks as well as other major sites. When I say familiar, I mean you should read them and know what kind of stories they're apt to post.

Research Intern: You should be good at pulling together multiple forms of information from multiple sources for our editors. This includes online and offline sources and even calling up people to arrange (and possibly conduct) interviews. Mostly, you should have a good grasp of technology and be able to locate and dissect information fast.

Copyediting Intern: English. You should know it. And you should be able to help us recognize when we screw up. You'll be helping us identify mistakes, fixing typos and correcting our grammar.


All of these internship positions will still involve us teaching you how to help us find stories—so think of this as your secondary superpower—as outlined here. Look that over (click the link and read it first!) and see if you're qualified.

If you think you're suited for one of those four positions (choose one only, please), send an email to with the subject "NY Writing Intern" or "NY Promotion Intern" or "NY Research Intern" or "NY Copyediting Intern"—whichever one fits you the best. No attachments. No. Attachments.


Remember, you need your own laptop, and you need to be able to get to Manhattan daily.

Good luck!

P.S. If you email me directly, and not, you fail.
