New York Intern Needed

Illustration for article titled New York Intern Needed

Hello, we're looking for another intern to work with us in New York City, because I drink coffee faster than it can be fetched by any single person. 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—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)
• 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—it'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 Learning
• Spotting stories
• Helping us pull together stories with research
• Working with editors in the field
• Assisting with writing, eventually, if you're awesome

The stipend is incredibly lousy—just enough to buy one fancy coffee per day—but you'll get top-notch experience with the well-oiled blog machine that is Giz, learn lots of neat words for wang, 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!


Now, I'm no fancy big-city lawyer, but from what I understand if you expect the intern to produce work that benefits the company at all, it needs to be fully paid to not be illegal.
