Intern at LibraryThing!

Not sure what to do with your summer? I just posted this to a few local lists—librarians, design people, etc. I thought I’d post it here too., the innovative social site for book lovers wants an intern.

We can think of four possible “types” for whom we could create a nifty internship. We’re only looking to get one intern, though.

  • “Weird Library Science” (MLS students)
  • “Web 2.0 Programming” (computer students)
  • “Web 2.0 Marketing” (anyone)
  • “Web 2.0 Design” (design students)

We offer:

*Minimum wage, probably
*Full- or part-time
*Cool, anarchic work environment (4 people in Portland, 6 elsewhere)

We’d love to get someone in who could help us, but the focus will be on learning from us, and doing interesting, open-ended and intellectually stimulating projects. 

We’d rather get someone local (Portland, Maine), but if you really want to do something remote, and have a strong idea what you could do with us, we’d love to hear from you.

About LibraryThing:
