Job: Blogging intern at Dlisted

Gossip: this r srs bzns

this r srs bzns

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 dlistedintern@gmail.com. The deadline for applications is Friday, September 27th.

As for 4, well, it’s MichaelK. I wouldn’t rule ANYTHING out.

Job opening: Editorial Fellows at Gawker Media

Deadlines in the monitor may be closer than they appear

Deadlines in the monitor may be closer than they appear

You know the Gawker Posse: io9, Gawker, Valleywag, Gizmodo, Jalopnik, Kotaku, Deadspin and Jezebel. They make metric shit-tons of money, and so (unlike Conde Nast) they can afford to pay their interns. Would you like to work for them? You bet you would! I hear the office has hot and cold running Adderall! Anyway, here are the specs, and NO you cannot work remotely. Interning means picking up the coffee, and if you lived in Vancouver it would be cold by the time you got it to NYC.

Gawker is once again hiring Editorial Fellows for our New York office.

Editorial Fellows are Gawker’s entry level editorial positions. The ideal Editorial Fellow candidate is a strong writer with a discerning eye for newsworthy stories, has a keen sense of Gawker’s voice, and will be able to work in the Gawker office four days a week.

The essentials:

  • You should want to be a journalist, reporter, writer, or something of the sort when you grow up—prior experience in media is a plus. This is a position we hope will transition into something permanent at Gawker, so a desire to write for us is a must.
  • Basic knowledge of Photoshop, FinalCut, and HTML.
  • You are over 18 and have the legal ability to work in the United States
  • Willingness to learn. We don’t expect you to know everything when you get here, but you should be willing to put the work in to figure it out. While we’ll never ask you to get us coffee, there is some basic administrative stuff—transcribing interviews and research assistance—that comes with the territory.

The stuff you’ll be doing:

  • Research and reporting: We are looking for a very strong writer who is capable of pulling together different kinds of information from multiple sources for editors
  • Spotting stories: Learning how to find and pitch stories from multiple sources and leads
  • Some video editing

Other things:

Editorial Fellows are paid, hourly employees. And if you’re really good (and lucky), one day you could be promoted to an Editorial Assistant.

If you think that sounds like something you’re into, apply here. You’ve got until August 30th to apply.

Face Up to Facebook

Face Book

Face Book

It has begun.

We’ve gotten a notice that our beloved (well, we’re being generous) Facebook Group is scheduled to be Archived. This means basically the four or five pictures we’ve got will stay and pretty much everything else will be gone. Sooper.

And we cannot convert it into a new style group, because there hasn’t been enough recent activity. And that means for our future plans, you will have to either keep checking the blog, buy raincoaster and Ian drinks at the Heather (and we all know how expensive that can be, right?) or wait for a hand-delivered message on parchment, and who has parchment lying around handy anymore, seriously?

You see where we are going with this, right?

Please, please, for the love of the printed (or pixillated) word, go to our Facebook Group and comment, like, or share something.

WE ARE NOT FUSSY: YOUR COMMENT CAN EVEN HAVE TYPOS AND GRAMMATICAL ERRORS OR EVEN BE IN ALL CAPS AND THIS ONCE WE WILL NOT MAKE FUN OF YOU.
