Dishterns Wanted

May 3 2011 @ 1:40pm

The Dish is looking for two interns to help with editorial content, assist with remedial tasks, and work on larger projects.

Interns will be full time (37.5 hours a week) and will be paid an hourly wage of $10.25. The position, unlike many internships, includes benefits (my bleeding heart insistence) and are a year-long commitment. Applicants must be in DC or willing to move to DC. We are hoping to hire interns within the next month or two. Start dates are semi-flexible.

We've wanted our own exclusive interns for years and now we are at the Beast, we can have them. We're looking for extremely hard workers, web-obsessives and Dishheads, who already understand what we do here. I should add that Zoe, Chris and Patrick all started as Atlantic interns with some of their duties for the Dish, and became full-time staffers because of the amazing work they produced. We're also looking for individuals who can challenge me and my assumptions and find stuff online that we might have missed.

To apply, please e-mail a (max 500-word) cover letter explaining why you want to work for the Dish and a resumé to Dish.Intern@newsweekdailybeast.com. The cut off for applications is Friday, May 13th.
