Gawker Media Internships

Gawker Media seeks a few brave interns to learn about our commenting system and help us with our beloved communities. The interns will learn about behind-the-scenes administrative tasks and quality community oversight under the direction of our Community Manager.

Applicants should have several days per week to devote to these duties. Strong communication skills, familiarity with Gawker Media blogs and commenting communities, and excellent decision-making abilities must.

New York City-based is preferred, but remote applicants will be considered. College internship credit available to those who qualify. Send email with bio, resume, commenter username and subject line 'Community Internship' to communityintern@gawker.com.

Internship Announcements Spring 2010

Points to remember:

Students register THEMSELVES for WRI 380 Professional Seminar; the English Department registers them only for the WRI 390 Internship.

This summer, WRI 380 Professional Seminar will be held during Summer ONE, so students also must register for Summer ONE internships.

WRI 380 Professional Seminar is taught primarily online, but real-time meetings will be held in Lytle on several WEDNESDAY afternoons beginning at 2 p.m. Therefore, students may not register for any SUMMER ONE course that would conflict with this time.

An information session during which WRI 380 Professional Seminar summer assignments will be distributed and discussed will be held Thursday, April 29, at 11 a.m. in Lytle 212.
