The last time we posted this position we tried to make it clear that you have to be in college and able to receive credits if you want to be an intern here. Other than that, the only requirements are as follows:
— Did we mention you have to be in college and able to receive credits as “payment”? There’s no hourly, stipend etc. Just college credit.
— Don’t be faceless like current-but-leaving-soon intern ryan.
— You don’t have to be an advertising major, a creative hopeful, a journalism major etc. Faceless intern Ryan is an Econ major/English minor. Just be able to get stuff done, mmk?
— Send your resume, but honestly as an intern you won’t have anything to show for it so spend more time on the test.
— You must be able to successfully complete our little test, which will be explained later.
— We want you for like, 3 days a week, but that sh*t is negotiable. We swear, this is a legit, professional thing. No filing, ever. Coffee runs are not your job.
— Your job will be explained in more detail if you get the interview. As an intern, expect to do any number of random things associated with running a blog, its video production department, et al.
— You have to be easy going, super Web savvy (dare we say, super-duper?) meaning you know a bit of HTML and a little about what’s going on in advertising. If you’re reading this blog, you’re ahead of where Ryan was.
— You must be able to come into the office and work. As for the interview, that can be worked out (say, if you’re not going to be here for another week or something).
— You must be able to write: this is the test. Find some advertising-related story from anywhere (just not here) and put together a post, including either an image or a video. Make it 300-500 words and make it fun. If we don’t giggle at least once, you fail. Trust your gut.
— Email agencyspy at gmail dot com with a PDF version of your story. We need someone asap and this kid Ralph Lee is already working on something, so hurry hurry!
Here’s some examples of what Ryan’s done while here.
Good luck. And big apologies to Colin Murphy, current Campfire intern. We thought he’d for sure be our next intern but it didn’t work out. He wears bow ties and knows a sh*t ton, which would make him an awesome asset to pretty much any agency that gives-a-care (remember that phrase!?) about the futures. Hire him.
