More and more often, I’m hearing from people whom I haven’t heard from in a long time. The e-mail usually goes something like this: “I was just looking around online for summer interns, came across your site and then realized it was you!” A few weeks ago, the guy who e-mailed me was friend from high school whom I hadn’t seen in probably 8 years (that makes me sound old). He’s living in New York City and is part of a very early stage startup called LiveIntent that needs interns. They’re focused on “helping advertisers to unlock Twitter as a channel for advertising and customer acquisition,” which sounds like a pretty smart thing to be doing these days. I don’t have much more on what the company is all about, because they really are that new.

Intent to Intern

Since David (my friend from LiveIntent) sent me a full job description that you’re not going to find anywhere else, here’s the deal on these Summer internships:

Employer: LiveIntent, Inc
Job Title: Social Media Outreach Intern

About LiveIntent:
LiveIntent is a young startup looking for intelligent, creative people with strong writing skills and lots of ambition. We are a small technology company helping advertisers to unlock Twitter as a channel for advertising and customer acquisition.

Job Description:
We are looking to hire 4 part-time employees/interns to help us manage a growing network of Twitter accounts. The employees will start part-time with an evaluation after one month and the potential of full-time employment and quick advancement. Each employee will be responsible for managing, growing, and creating content for a handful of branded Twitter accounts. We will provide oversight, but minimal guidance–employees are encouraged to think and act creatively and develop unique editorial voices and methods of their own. Employees will be evaluated according to pre-defined metrics; performance will be rewarded. LiveIntent is a young company experiencing explosive growth. Don’t miss this great opportunity to get in at the ground floor of an exciting new venture!

Each employee will be paid $100 a week for the first month. At the end of one month, compensation will be re-evaluated according to performance.

– Enthusiasm and hard-work
– Team player who can work with a small group of dedicated people. Ambitious but humble.
– Strong writing skills (creative writing preferred)
– Familiarity with Twitter (if you don’t know the difference between an @ and a #, you’re probably not right for the job)
– Ability to do more with less

Contact: David Temple – Please include a writing sample.

David and I talked for a while on what he should expect from interns, so I think you can expect LiveIntent to offer a pretty great internship experience.
