TMN Is Looking for a Summer Intern

TMN needs a summer intern. Applications due Monday, April 27.

TMN is looking for an intern for Summer 2009. The internship is unpaid and done where you like. You’re required to supply your own computer, web connection, and green visor. Most likely your work will include helping out with the headlines and a few editorial projects, but it also can involve grunt stuff like handling merchandise fulfillment, or fun stuff like shopping for beer at the Retreat. Probably 10-20 hours a week of work.

Here’s what our three most recent interns have to say about the experience:
I’ve been an intern for a number of places, and wow most of them sucked. You do tons of work and all you get is a lot of really awkward no-eye-contact, am I right? Well, not so at TMN. First off, most of the work is actually pretty fun and rewarding. Second, the staff really is the coolest bunch of people you’ll ever meet in your life. They’ll look you in the eye, listen to you talk, remember your name. It’s incredible! So apply now. You won’t regret it.—Matthew Robison

TMN people are the nicest, funniest people you’ll ever meet, and TMN projects are the nicest, funnest, most challenging work you’ll ever do. TMN will make you use the internet in ways you never did before, and never in the oh-god-I-just-spent-three-hours-on-YouTube kind of way. You couldn’t ask for a better summer job.—Nozlee Samadzadeh

An internship with TMN is hugely enriching. The whole TMN family is warm and friendly. Interns have a unique opportunity to soak up expertise from a fantastic pool of people, and work on projects that will leave you invigorated and inspired. Dive in! It’s quite possibly the best way to spend a summer.—Mike Smith
The candidate we’re looking for has good web chops, a wide taste in reading materials, and an interest in online publishing. Applications should include a CV and a paragraph or two on why you want to work for TMN, any relevant experience, and how you came to start reading the site. Please keep things brief. Bonus points if you can name the song Andrew and Rosecrans sang in the drunk karaoke video that once appeared in this space.

Send us everything via email to by midnight, Monday, April 27. Thanks!

Rosecrans Baldwin co-founded TMN with publisher Andrew Womack in 1999. His latest book is Everything Now: Lessons From the City-State of Los Angeles. More information can be found at More by Rosecrans Baldwin
