Want to be a RiotACT intern?

By johnboy 22 November 2011 31

If you’re wondering how you’re going to occupy yourself over the summer holidays (itself implying you get summer holidays) and you’ve got an interest in how the least resourced newsroom in the world operates then feel free to drop us a line to come and be an intern for a week at our salubrious Civic suite.

Highlights will include:

    — The awesome power of comment moderation
    — Laughing at hate mail from nutters
    — Getting to throw your suggestions in on editorial decisions
    — An exploration of all the best lunch take aways in Civic
    — Long philosophical discussions on the nature of news
    — Nitpicking media releases
    — Running around taking photos of interesting things
    — By the end of the week being able to manage a high volume website
    — Discovering the lost world of the garbage skips
    — Learning to call yourself a “social media expert” as credibly as any other bugger

It might not be for everyone, or anyone, and there’s no pay. But if you’re interested send an email in to john@the-riotact.com

Internment is the imprisonment or confinement of people, commonly in large groups, without trial.

Can’t tell if trolling, or just … misguided.

Guess again!

Johnboy, if you are after anything from Gen X or Y, have an answer to the following question ready to go:

“What’s in it for me, and when do I get it?”

Are you called PantsMan because you wear your belt up around your armpits? Thought so.

I think the staff of RiotACT should do a swimsuit calander.

Oh no you don’t. Seriously…

JB, the second point on your list fascinates me. “Laughing at hate mail from nutters”. Do you really still receive hate mail? Any chance that you could run a story on it maybe highlighting a few emails? I am sure most rioters would love to read some of it.

Sadly we many years ago decided that directly mocking the mentally unwell, while amusing, was not a good look.

So it’s a pleasure reserved for staff.

LOL, well some are the claims levied against you that I had read in the past were a bit far fetched! On visiting the eagles nest on Thursday, I noticed that you are obviously NOT a Reptoid.

Maybe a Hunter S Thompson or Spider Jerusalem type – that looks like he can throw down the beers!

Jazz looks like he can Grog-on too – bring on the Christmas Party!

The disguise is working well then.

Excellent.
