So once again, I need an intern. I have a bunch of random stuff I need help with, but I really need an intern to help me with the web store I plan on opening soon. I have a few projects that are hopefully all going to happen around the 9th anniversary of Driven By Boredom on March 1st. I am hopefully going to be out of town a lot in March and April as well so I will need help holding down the fort. I also am planning an event for late May so I might get really busy in May as well.
So I am looking for someone who can commit on average 10 hours a week through the end of May. I know it is cutting it close, but I am pretty sure we can hook you up with college credit if you can figure that out with your school. I know when I did my internship I had to have done a certain amount of hours and I can make sure you get that.
This is not a photography internship. Once in a while I might need help on a shoot, but for the most part it has nothing to do with photography. I am looking for people who are interested in marketing, specifically web marketing. I want someone who spends a lot of time online and is comfortable with social networking and really basic html. People with experience in web design/coding with experience in Word Press would be a bonus but that’s not required. The job can mostly be done from home, except that once in a while I might need film picked up or something like that. The one thing I hopefully will need the most help with though is mailing shit. Starting mid Feb I plan on opening a web store. I have shirts, tote bags, prints and some other random shit that I will be selling and I need someone to be in charge of making sure people get their shwag. I figure a post office run once or twice a week should be enough, but it also involves packaging and labeling and all that fun stuff.
There will be some benefits, particularly if you are over 21 (or at least have a reliable ID) as far as getting guest listed to parties and the occasional drink ticket if you feel like coming out with me. With a few exceptions I won’t need you at clubs, but if you want to come out for fun we can make that happen.
Lastly and most importantly, I have had a lot of problems with interns in the past and I need someone responsible and without substance abuse problems. Two of my 4 previous interns ended up totally screwing me over because of their drug problems and I cannot have that happen again. Seriously, if you have a $100 a day coke habit do not fucking email me. I will find out.
Okay, if you are interested in this internship, and you think you can manage to do this without disappearing or fucking up my business, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. If you have a resume that’s great, if not, just tell me about yourself and send me a Facebook link. If you don’t use Facebook, this is probably not the job for you. There will be some tedious bullshit work but will make this job as fun for you as possible.
And for the 99% of people out there who don’t want to be my intern and are viewing this post as a waste of time, enjoy these cute puppies:
