Repost from the founder of the website for which I am an editor...
Hello! My name is Olivia and I'm starting a really cool and dynamic online music magazine that focuses on the local SF music scene. We write reviews, blogs and profile underground local bands. Every month there is a profiled band that I pick to make a short documentary on.
The site isn't up yet. However, it's very close to being ready. We have a test site link, and if you are interested in helping out, I can send it to you so that you can get a feel for the style of the site and what we are trying to achieve.
WHAT I NEED: Someone who can give me 1 or 2 full 6-8 hour days per week. Most of the work is online, so a lot of the time you can work from home and we can communicate online. The responsibilities include doing research for getting our site established as a buisness, helping to make the monthly calendar of which bands to check out and writing a blurb for the site on all the picks of the week we choose. I'll also need help planning fund raising events/shows for the site which we want to do monthly and with online networking/advertising. There will be more projects that arise along the way, so you would need to be flexible and able to work on multiple projects at once. I'm super swamped with getting my new site up and running and just need an extra hand.
This is an unpaid position; however, I'm hoping I can offer college credit, since we will be a business soon. You will gain skills in how to develop and start a new website, learn more about the local music scene, and get to join in on the start of an exciting, rapidly growing project.
What I need from you - a cover letter and resume. Also, please list some bands that you are really into, both local and big name bands (I will be looking for someone who has musical tastes that fit the site).
On a seperate document, please answer these questions:
1. When was the last time you went to see music live?
2. Who was it?
3. How often do you go out to see live music?
4. Are you a musician?
5. Why does this internship interest you?
Don't worry about the writing style - I'm looking more at the ideas you have, rather than something formal. I'm super chill but need someone who can stay organized and focused.
Thanks a lot, and hope to hear from you soon!
