What's up, students? Need some "real world" experience to mix with your pottery classes, beach-combing, and Food Not Bombs meetings? Today, we said farewell to a guy with ice-cold shoes and a serious hatred for the Beatles, Ryan Burk. Now it's back to square one.
Ideally, County Grind is looking for someone who is passionate about a lot of different types of music, enjoys attending concerts featuring local and national acts, knows how to write a good blog, can work independently, and is willing to be the butt of our jokes at the end of the academic term.
Emphasis that you must be in school
of some sort (undergrad, grad, postgrad, you pick), so that we can
give you college credit for your commitments, which would ideally be
about 20 hours spread creatively over a five-day workweek starting as early as September.
Although this is an unpaid position, you will be paid for all writing
contributions -- and the right internship candidate will obtain many
opportunities to develop as a writer, editor, and journalistic hero.
Experience with blogging software would be an enormous asset, as well as
proximity to our Fort Lauderdale office.
To apply, send an email with "County Grind Internship" in the subject line to Music@BrowardPalmBeach. And tell us:
1. Your relevant experience, music interests, and career goals.
2. Where we can read samples of your writing (links are ideal).
3. Your school and a proposed schedule that fits loosely within regular daily business hours (10 a.m. to 6 p.m.).
That's it! Thanks for your attention.
Keep New Times Broward-Palm Beach Free... Since we started New Times Broward-Palm Beach, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of South Florida, and we would like to keep it that way.

Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
