West Hollywood Entrepreneur Launches CyberInterns.com

Many Southern California bastions of journalism, movie making and other media fields rely heavily on the blood, sweat and – yes, sometimes – tears of interns. But 24-year-old West Hollywood entrepreneur Talan Torriero (pictured) is hoping to speed the progress of a 21st century free labor twist: the virtual intern.

His brand new site CyberInterns.com has initial employer listing fees ranging from $49.00 to $87.00 and he is about to start officially approaching area colleges and universities. Job seekers are not charged, and Torriero adds that if an employer reading this article wants to give the operation a whirl, they can enter the code “FishbowlLA” for a free 30-day trial.

“In the last four years, I have had the opportunity to intern at some pretty incredible places, from Warner Bros. Records to Akiva Goldsman‘s production company,” Torriero tells FishbowlLA via email. “After that, I got the social media bug and decided to switch gears career-wise. I enrolled online at the University of San Francisco and got an internship at Lunch.com.”

Spencer left his post as editor-in-chief of In Touch this summer.  He has also served as editor-in-chief at Twist and J-14.

OK! Continues Its Reign as a Bootleg People

It totally sucks right now to be OK!.

Not only is the magazine battling its competitors for the best Teen Mom cover, but according to New York Post, it’s losing a reported $700,000 a week and missing its rate base. And, in the biggest shocker, that Hillary Duff wedding exclusive completely tanked on the newsstand.

Keith Kelly reports:

Richard Desmond, the chairman of the magazine’s London parent company, Northern + Shell, is said to be growing impatient with editor Mark Pasetsky. And it did not help that the five-year anniversary bash in Los Angeles last week did not exactly attract an A-list crowd. Desmond, who flew in from London, had expected to rub elbows with the beautiful people.”
