TPM is looking
for an intern.
No, this isn't some lead-in to humor at the expense of our former president. TPM is really looking for an intern.
TPM is in the process of an upgrade that will add a number of features many readers have long requested: a printer-friendly function, an RSS feed, easier-to-read text, ads, a whole bunch of stuff.
The intern will assist with this upgrade and then with on-going site maintenance.
Applicants should be well-versed in basic web design skills and be familiar with current web design technologies. ('Current' would mean unlike TPM who is well-versed in circa 1996 web design technologies.) They should be interested in both the technical and political aspects of the website. Living in the Washington area is ideal, but not required.
The commitment of time should be fairly light, certainly an amount that could easily be accommodated while working in a full-time job or academic program.
If you apply you should know that the internship will probably be profoundly non-remunerative. But you will get the opportunity to have hands-on experience working with a widely-read and influential political blog during what promises to be an exciting election season.
To apply, please send a resume, a brief description of your relevant experience and why you're interested in the position, and two references with email addresses provided. Send them to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject heading 'TPM Intern.'
