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

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?”

Old *and* bitter.

Chuck in a complaint about skateboards or ‘video games’ and you’ve got the trifecta.

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

Whereas other generations expect nothing at all? The attitude you describe sounds quite reasonable to me.

I’m Gen Y and I find it unreasonable that you are putting this all on GEN X and Y. I for one will be contacting Johnboy because i think it would awesome experience! And seeing as I have a great paying job and am looking to further my studies and career, I don’t want anything out of this other than experience and a laugh.

What? No pay? No car? At least tell me that they will get reimbursed with love!

This is The RiotACT — a hive of scum and villainy. You must be cautious!
