Sure, you tell everyone that you're "really into" Engadget and that you'd kill to work for the site... but do you really mean it? No, we don't mean actually kill someone, but are you obsessed enough to want to be its pavement-pounding, hardscrabble paid intern? If you think you've got what it takes to get rough and tumble with the baddest tech journalism team in the history of human civilization, we want to hear from you. We're looking for an East Coast intern (in NYC or a very short commute) that can put at least 25 hours a week in, with big potential for post-writing if you're up to the task. Want to apply? Read on.

Here's what you need to send us:

Writing

  • Three sample posts written in the Engadget style.
    • "The Engadget style" doesn't mean a generic-sounding blog voice -- think about how your own writing style and voice can shine through while still fitting Engadget.
    • These sample posts can be about whatever you want, but they should seem like they could have been written by one of our writers (but without all the typos and gross inaccuracies).
    • Make sure these are germane to the site you want to write for.
    • We won't be using these on the site, we just want to get a sense of how well you can do this stuff.
  • Your favorite related gadgets (and why).
    • list your fave gadgets of all time.
  • Give us a few words about how you think Engadget differs from other technology pubs out there.
About You
  • A few words about yourself. (Please note, due to legalities we can't hire minors.)
  • Your contact info.
  • How much time per week you can commit to interning. If it's less than 25 then you probably shouldn't bother. Be realistic, okay?
  • Any other questions you may have about the gig.
What not to do
  • Don't just send us stuff you wrote elsewhere, we're not asking for clips.
  • Don't send attachments or resumes.
Note that we will only review fully complete applications, and remember to put the name of the position you're applying for in the title of your email.

We also apologize, but the sheer volume of applications makes it difficult to respond to everyone. If we're interested we'll get in touch, and thanks in advance!

To apply to Engadget, please send us an email with the word intern in the subject to: jobsATengadgetDOTcom
