Want to get paid to read gossip sites all day? Have we got a job for you. Icon, blogger, literati, hot mess Michael K over at Dlisted is looking for an intern and yes, this is a paid gig (would we post any other kind? I ask yez). Dlisted is, if you don’t know, an extremely high-profile gossip site with a unique style which incorporates the wit of an Oscar Wiled with tastelessness of a truly jaw-dropping level. So, naturally, I love it.
You’ll probably get stuck with doing the link roundups, which are a tedious daily exercise in linking to the top story on each of a handful of blogs daily, and all the social media, but you can telecommute and have the satisfaction of knowing that all the sites you read will now be reading YOUR writing.
Here’s the post:
Because I get yelled at to post faster, post more and stop trolling eBay all day for Shauna Sand memorabilia, I’m finally looking for some help. I’m looking for an intern, but it could become permanent. I know some of you, so I know you’re asking, “How much?!” It does pay and no, I won’t pay you with Shauna Sand memorabilia. But I can if that’s what you want and who wouldn’t want to be paid with Shauna Sand memorabilia?
Here’s the requirements to be Dlisted’s first intern:
1. You can live wherever, but you must have your own laptop and Internet access.
2. You must be into pop culture. You should be a regular reader of Dlisted, because the stuff that comes out of my mouth barely makes sense and it really doesn’t make sense if you don’t read Dlisted.
3. It’s a total plus if you know the basics of Photoshop. You’ll need to use it to crop images and to Photoshop out my zits on my Facebook profile pics.
4. You must MUST must be able to throw a last-minute fashion show in your mom’s backyard.
Your responsibilities will include writing posts, finding pictures, researching, handling social media stuff and transcribing scenes from Showgirls with me on IM.
If you’re interested, e-mail a short note about yourself, resume (if you have one) and a writing sample (or a link to your Twitter page and/or blog) to firstname.lastname@example.org. The deadline for applications is Friday, September 27th.
As for 4, well, it’s MichaelK. I wouldn’t rule ANYTHING out.
