Be Gizmodo's New York Intern

Illustration for article titled Be Gizmodos New York Intern

Hello, we're still looking for more awesome Gizmodo interns in New York City. Are you one?

We're looking for a few different kinds of interns, with varied interests. Four different kinds, to be precise:

Writing Intern: Your main task will be 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. By familiar, we 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 mistakes, fix typos and correct poor grammar.


All of these internship positions will still involve us teaching you the basics of gadget blogging-so think of these specialities 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. Seriously. Unless you're just testing how fast I'll delete your email.


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

Good luck!

P.S. Email, not me directly.

The only skills required are the ability to cut and paste from other web sites and add inane commentary of things you know nothing about. BTW intern=free labor.
