Work at TR! Summer interns wanted

If you’re a college-age person in the Kansas City, Missouri or Vancouver, B.C. areas who would like to get some experience in our strange little industry, have we got a deal for you. We’re now considering applications for summer internships here at TR. We’re a little fuzzy on the plans still, but you’ll likely be following one of us around, helping out as needed. That means we can use people who want to help with testing hardware, handling data, writing, marketing the site, and crucially, polishing Geoff’s bikes. The pay will be zero to minimal, so this is about the experience, folks.

If you’re still interested after learning that, please drop us a line with a resume and a note about your areas of interest. Serious inquiries from those in the areas we’ve stated only, please.

    Now’s a good time for TR to create good PR by looking into community service. Washing hobos and mowing lawns for old ladies are a good start.

    That is so cool! If only Kansas City was closer to Cincinnati.

    I’m not in college yet, but considering this is my last year of high school (graduating in a month…I hope) would I, a 17 year old, be eligible to apply for an internship in Vancouver?

      the easiest way to find out is to apply. 🙂

    Please do not allow ssid anywhere near the Damage Labs or even worse, allow him any kind of semi official status where he can post as “part of TR staff”.
    I’d even tolerate Prime1 or Brian_S if there’s no other choice.
    The Teen Report(shudder).

      I think ssidbroadcast would be an ideal candidate and would bring much skill and knowledge to expanding the depth and breadth of TR coverage. !

      But just think: he could have a blog, and it would be a real timesaver for those of you who otherwise would be sucking up an hour watching “Gossip Girl”!

    Resume sent. (seriously)

    Oh man, I can’t take my summer vacation to your house and camp out in the benchmarking sweatshop? I could vacuum! I’m good with kids.

    /[http://www.washingtontimes.com/weblogs/watercooler/2010/apr/10/obama-interns-me-not-thee/<]§ So, are you trying to attract the Eye of Sauron with this post?

      The intern will be paid in cats.

    Geoff and Cyril are in Vancouver, Damage is in Missouri, who’s in Kansas? (or if I have that backwords, Damage is in Kansas, who’s in Missouri?) Adam?

      Kansas City is in Missouri, for the most part.

        They named it to hide it from people, and it mostly worked.

        Thanks for the clarification

    I’ve always wanted to do something to help TR out, and this would be a perfect opportunity except i don’t live in KC or BC. 🙁

      Just please make sure the candidate can write as though he/she’s literate.

        What a soft jab.

        And need to be able to use a computer, unlike Rod Blagojevich. 😛

      Just do what House did a couple of season back. Get 30 odd interns and kick them out as you go.

    Not sure if TR counts, but for work in Canada there are various government grants to cover interns such as:

    I’m glad TR joins the sweatshop fraternity! 😛
