New York Fall Intern Wanted

Illustration for article titled New York Fall Intern Wanted

Hello, we're looking for another intern to work in New York City, since one of them is getting deported to London. Here's what we're looking for:

What You Need
• Gadget love and knowledge—some geekiness is definitely a good thing
• Writing experience is a major plus, but not 100 percent mandatory—but you should have a good command of the English language, and be ready to demonstrate it with some samples
• A decent laptop (one that can handle light video editing)
• An alarm clock, 'cause you'll be up eeeeeearly every morning
• Basic experience with HTML, Flickr, torrenting, Firefox, FTP-the internets, essentially
• An NYCish address (you need to be able to get to Manhattan in the morning with no problems)
• Dedication—the job's fun, but it's definitely work
• The ability to listen and follow instructions and be fast—basically, you're here to learn and build up your knowledge-base
• Full-time availability—sorry students
• To be over 18

What You'll Be Doing
• Spotting stories
• Helping us pull together stories with research
• Supporting editors in the field
• Writing, eventually, if you're awesome

The pay is incredibly lousy—we're not kidding—but you'll get top-notch experience with the well-oiled blog machine that is Giz, learn lots of neat words for penis, and yes, get to play with cool gadgets you (maybe) couldn't afford on your own. Send your resume, no attachments please—seriously, we'll delete your application without even looking at it—and tell us why you're the best person on earth, or at least in NY, to, with NYC INTERN in the subject line, otherwise we might miss it. Good luck!

Deported? What kind of blogging infraction gets a person deported?,... to London?,... a city? Is that really being "deported", or is it more of a "foreign assignment"?

Don't Gizmodo editors get "deported" to Las Vegas every year? Las Vegas is a city, too. I'd recommend deporting interns to Las Vegas, in the future. Somehow, though, I think you guys must say something like:

"As a duly designated representative of the City, County and State of New York, I order you to cease any and all supernatural activity and return forthwith to your place of origin or to the nearest convenient parallel dimension."

... that "parallel dimension"? You guessed it.

It's Vegas, baby!
