Forbes Internship, or Forbes Torture?

We all have to start somewhere. But perhaps an extra level of steeliness will be required for the person who winds up settled into this NYC journalism opportunity:

The Forbes Wealth team seeks an inquisitive, investigative intern/reporter to help cover the world’s wealthiest people. That person will be an integral part of the team that compiles and produces one of our most popular issues, the World’s Billionaires. Responsibilities include extensive research on wealthy individuals and spreadsheet manipulation.

The good news is that Forbes pays its interns. The bad news is that from start date through mid-March, the chosen paid intern will have to grin and bear a lot of zeros as they muddle through their small square footage, annoying roomate(s) daily routine. Or, as Forbes prefers to describe it: “Ability to thrive in a fast-paced, high-pressure, deadline environment.”

And not that this came from us, but perhaps a remnant member of the Occupy movement should pursue this as the perfect undercover opportunity. “Spreadsheet check!… Spreadsheet check!”
