Want to Intern for Gizmodo?

Filed under: Technology — Tags: , , — DBNewsWorld @ 8:39 PM

This gig sounds freaking awesome! Check out Gizmodo for further details.

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

I would do it if I lived in New York City!
