Looking for a few good news interns

Hello, good people of the Android Universe! The fact that you're reading this already means you're a fine upstanding member of the Android Central Forums, and you've got a leg up on anyone who's not here.

Summer's rolling in, and we're looking for a few good summer news interns. That is, we're looking for a few folks who want to get into this, the Greatest Android Site in the World, on the ground floor. What will you get out of this internship? The adoration of millions of Android fans, for one. The thanks of your Android Central editors, for another. Plus, letters of recommendation, if that's what you need, and quite possibly a full position in our paid writing corps.

We're looking for three specific folks with a nose for news -- and more important, an availability to use it. We'll go into more detail if you pass the first challenge. And that challenge is as follows:

E-mail phil at androidcentral dawt com with the subject line "Intern" (but not in quotes). In the body of the e-mail, include the following:

  • Your full name.
  • Your Android Central username
  • How long you're been reading Android Central
  • The name of your favorite Android Central personality
  • Whether you root and ROM, or like things stock (there's no wrong answer, unless you answer "what is root?")
  • In 15 words, tell us why you think we should let you intern for us

(Hint: Follow instructions. Spelling and neatness count.)

We can't respond to everybody. But if you make the first cut, you'll hear back from us shortly. Good luck!

Just emailed, I might not make the cut because I think I may have mispelled a couple words and I went over 15 words.

I'd love to do it, just don't think that as a new member it would suite your needs. I know what I'm doing and Android but was formerly a mod on another site. Think its best I establish myself here before attempting to lead or help.

Sent an e-mail, but I don't expect to be picked, heh. I'm curious, though, how exactly would this internship work? Would all communication be done online? Or is there a physical location we would have to go to?

Considering I live in the UK and I joined the team last year, you don't have to worry about being somewhere, online is usually fine :)
