I know it’s tough out there for journalists and bloggers, with ad rates down and all, but I thought Deadspin could at least pay their staff for moderating comments. Instead they’re looking for unpaid college interns to do the dirty work.
If you’re interested in the internship,Â they ask for aÂ bio, resume, commenter username. If I were going to hire interns, I’d also ask for photos, so I could narrow it down to the cute girls at least. And I wouldn’t limit the job to just moderating comments — I’m ask them to get my coffee and write some damn posts too. Oh yeah, and we’d have a strict dress code like above.
