Videogum is now taking applications for summer internships. Oh sorry, was that too abrupt for you? Did you want me to spend an entire paragraph beating around the bush (with a bunch of parenthetical asides) and forced, outdated pop culture references like I do with most other posts? If your answer was yes then at the very least you have a good sense of Videogum’s tone and you might make a great fit for one of our summer internship positions! Your responsibilities will be, you know, whatever an intern’s responsibilities at a blog are. Faxing? Whatever. Is that really what you care about? Responsibilities? You’ll have them. You’re going to have to actually do some work and stuff. But, like, when you are thinking about internship opportunities do you go on Facebook and gush about the “responsibilities” listed? “They said light clerical!” Maybe you do. I don’t know have ANY idea what kids these days do. Call your helicopter tiger mom who is also your best friend on your own dime. (I also do not know how much calls cost.)
So it looks like you got your ridiculous bloggy Paragraph About Nothing (Seinfeld reference) after all. Congrats! If you are interested in the (unpaid but with college credit) internship, though, please email us at [email protected]. You can include your resume if you have one, and you’re trying to be an adult now so you should have one, but you’re also probably in college and therefore your resume is almost certainly complete bullshit. No offense. I worked at a cafe, too, for years. I get it. But, you know. (Pro-tip: the “objective” field is not a real field.) So send some sample writing, maybe, and at the very least write a thoughtful explanation of why you want the internship in the first place. Those kinds of things go a lot further. (Pro-tip: it doesn’t have to be funny, it just has to be thoughtful. People have really sunk themselves trying to be funny in the past. Don’t sweat it! You do you!) It’ll be great, though. Very exciting. So many responsibilities. Please RT. Let’s make this a Summer 3 Remember.
