VentureBeat is looking for interns for news reporting and social media

You like technology, blogging, or social media — or maybe all three. We need interns. See where we’re going with this?

We’re looking for two new interns for our editorial team. If you’re a star writer with a love of technology, we want to hear from you. If you spend more time on Reddit, Facebook, Digg, StumbleUpon and Twitter than you think is healthy, we want to hear from you too.

VentureBeat is headquartered in downtown San Francisco, but we are looking for interns in the New York City area as well.

As a former VentureBeat intern, I can soundly say this a great place to learn the ropes, especially if you have a love for technology. We have some excellent people from all walks of life who are willing to teach you, and help you grow in this industry. Don’t get us wrong, though, Silicon Valley is fast-paced world and you’ll need to be able to keep up with VentureBeat’s fast-moving, high-speed crew. But if you think being behind the wheel when the brakes are out is exciting, then this is the place for you.

Reporting Intern:
Must be an excellent writer and interested in learning how a real-time newsroom works. You’ll need to do information triage (sorting out newsworthy items from dross), as well as hop on the phone, make connections and get the facts. Those who jump on tasks quickly, have a great eye for what’s important into today’s tech ecosystem and are ready to head out to some conferences are at the top of our list. A background in journalism is preferred.

Community Intern:
Must have experience with various social media websites including Facebook, Twitter, Reddit, StumbleUpon, Digg, LinkedIn, and others. You must know the ins and outs of these sites and how best to distribute content on them, as well as how to find out what’s hot. Must have a love of technology and an interest in contributing to a leading tech business site. Must be poised and professional to act as VentureBeat’s voice in the social domain.

Interested? Contact executive editor Dylan Tweney (dylan@venturebeat.com) with your resume or LinkedIn URL, links to 3 or 4 recent things you’ve written, and a short note about why you would be a top-notch intern.
