Posted by Tom Mason Categories: Editorials

InternsLooking to kick off 2011 with an internship?

A Los Angeles-based comic book publisher is looking for two interns in two different departments.

The first one is for a Web/Programming Intern for someone who can create websites, do web programming, and is SEO savvy. It’s an unpaid internship in their IT department.

The second one is for a Marketing intern who can “bring the goods.” That means “an aggressive, personable, internet savvy, marketing intern to do a little bit of everything.” This includes the essential social media, web updates, help out at trade shows.

Details for both internships are at the links. If you’re ready to punch 2010 in the face and jump into the warm embrace of 2011, get your resume ready.

Good luck, interns!

NBC logoApple has announced that it will no longer be offering NBC programs through its iTunes Store. The network broke relations with Apple after they refused to pay more than double the wholesale price for each show. This would have forced the price up to $4.99 per episode rather than the $1.99, which fellow studios ABC, CBS, FOX, The CW, and 50 cable networks now share.
