FiveThirtyEight Looking for Two Good Interns

FiveThirtyEightLogoWhat does “pink grammar” mean? if you can figure that out, you might have a small-talk, job interview edge with regards to the pair of paid summer internships shared today by Carla Correa (a.k.a. @pinkgrammar).

A more certain lingo-advantage for those interested in the “data reporter” or “computational journalist” position will be a familiarity with “Python and Ruby.” If your first thoughts are to wonder why on earth FiveThirtyEight requires expertise in UK sketch comedy and the JFK assassination, this is probably not the low-salary job for you.

Both internships run from June 9 through August 14, at the New York office. Candidates should be enrolled in at least one course at the time of application and graduating this summer, fall or next spring.

Glamour Editor’s Job Interview Edge: Trend Boards

TheFashionSpotLogoFun little Q&A over at The Fashion Spot by editor-at-large Julie Bensman. It’s with her friend and former LA Confidential co-worker, Becky Malinsky.

Bensman opens the conversation with a general question. Malinsky, now the fashion market editor at Glamour, responds with a great anecdote:

“The funny thing about New York is that you have to be here to find a job. Since my days as a journalism major, I knew I wanted to work at a fashion magazine, but putting out resumes in Madison, Wisconsin wasn’t cutting it. After graduation, I moved to NYC, took meetings with anyone who would see me and after a few odd PR jobs, landed at Lucky magazine as a market assistant.

Job Ad of the Day: Las Vegas Review-Journal Crime Reporter

The subject line – “The Best Crime Beat Ever” – is a bit of a stretch, because it suggests that we’re not just talking present tense but reaching all the way back to Jack the Ripper newspaper days. However, the body text more than makes up for it.

From today’s announcement that Las Vegas Review-Journal deputy editor James G. Wright is on the hunt for a new “Dashiell Hammett on deadline:”

An aggressive mug who can think at a dead run in a 24-hour news town where maybe you’re coaxing quotes from the neighbors at a triple murder and next thing you know you’re chasing after Paris Hilton in handcuffs. A pushy sort who can turn cab drivers and waitresses into sources, and persuade tough cops to spill.

SoCal’s Wackiest Job Search Guru Strikes Again

We didn’t think it was possible. But with today’s missive “Ass Face, a Retired Actress and a Horny 41-Year-Old: Respecting Yourself and Your Job,” Harrison Barnes (pictured) has outdone himself.

The Malibu-based founder and CEO of The Employment Research Institute likes to share long, winding daily reams of wisdom with subscribers to various job search websites affiliated with his company. Barnes can always be counted for an unfiltered view of the 21st century workplace and details that often seem like they are straight out of a Hollywood screenplay.

Today’s column is all about three bad hires Barnes made, the lessons he learned and (arguably) the warning signs he ignored:

At some point during the [telemarketing job] interview, Rachael pulled out her cell phone and started showing me various pictures of a tumor that had been removed from her body not too recently. It was giant and grotesque. It had come out of her back and was at least two feet long. It looked like it had a head. It was five pounds and this monster had somehow managed to grow up the entire length of her back. She had a bunch of pictures of it on her IPhone that had been taken from all sorts of angles.
