Windy Citizen looking for interns

Hey folks,

Brad Flora, one of the panelists from last week is looking for interns this summer. He had incredible insights & feedback for all of you–would probably be super interesting to work with him on other things as well. Anyway, he asked me to pass this along!, Chicago’s #1 local news aggregator, is looking for summer editorial interns. Interns will be responsible for supporting a topic channel on our aggregator (e.g. Politics, Media, Tech, Real Estate) where they’ll help aggregate the best news of the day, build conversations and reach out to bloggers covering the topic.

Hours are flexible. Everyone works remotely and keeps in touch via e-mail with monthly staff meetups around Chicago.

The position is unpaid. Interns who produce results will receive startup experience, a rave endorsement for future job opportunities, and experience building the skills of the future: aggregating, community- and audience-building and social media relations.

We are looking for just a select few people. First come, first serve. Send resumes and a short cover letter to Let us know what topic you might be interested in focusing on.
