Oh, the places you'll go!

Looking for a job with no money and lots and lots of overtime?
Look no more!
Yes, FinePrint is looking for Fall 2011 intern applicants!

Most of our interns end up with jobs in publishing (the rest end up in straightjackets most likely)

We have a proven record of helping you learn what you need to know to stand out in a competitive field.

Cupcakes, whisky, and shark bites are considered perks of the job!

If only I lived in New York.

...and had any ambition.

...or applicable skill.

...or a transport pod.

Any position that offers cupcakes for reading things is just plain irresistible. Hope you find the best fish in the sea! :D

If I lived in NY and didn't have a family to feed, I would be sorely tempted. It sounds like, aside from all the awesome work you do, you guys have such fun. :) Though, I don't know if I'm cut out to be an agent. Being a writer with an awesome agent might be as far as I get. Hopefully. :D

A question. I hope to reinvent myself yet again in a couple of years and this would be my dream gig. Do you have to be young and perky or is halfway-up-but-not-even-close-to-over-the-hill also an option?

Chiming in with another "if only I lived in New York". If you ever have interest in Scifi/Fantasy distance readers, I'll be the first one scrambling for resume' updates.

Oh, I'd love to...too bad I'm on the wrong coast.

Question for you - do publishing houses (etc) ever offer internships that aren't on-site? I'm kindasorta interested in this kind of internship - but I'm also in school. Have critical eye, will read; can't travel so much. [g]

Sigh. I live in New York, but I'm closer to Cleveland than NYC. That sounds fantastic.

*sound of a shriveled, grinchy little heart breaking* I'm banished to the Great White North of Canada. 'Shark bites, and cupcakes' aren't effectively delivered online, so I assume it's an in house position only. *le sigh* Fortunately I recently finagled a position at my local library, which is the next best thing:)

Food for the shark. I love reading your blog, it's the first one I look at, after Query Shark even though I know you're not the agent I'm looking for. Good luck with finding the new intern.
