XLR8R is looking for editorial interns in our San Francisco office who know the difference between Junior Boys and Boys Noize, techno and electro, Major Lazer, lazer bass, and drum & bass, hip-hop and trip-hop, and who require minimal hand-holding. Positions are for both editorial and events and online marketing.

Duties include writing and posting content to the XLR8R website, writing record reviews, assisting with the preparation of web graphics, logging incoming releases, and helping with general organizational tasks. This intern will also help with the management of XLR8R.com’s social networking accounts (MySpace, Facebook, Twitter).

All internships are unpaid, and require a commitment of 8-10 hours per week, for 4-6 months. Eligible applicants will have excellent communication skills, knowledge of Microsoft Office, and be email- and internet savvy. Knowledge of Adobe Creative Suite and HTML are a plus. Journalism students are strongly encouraged to apply.

Please submit a cover letter, resume, and 2-3 published or unpublished writing samples to sfintern@xlr8r.com. Please, no phone calls.
