FM’s Cambridge office is looking for interns for the summer to help with the magazine’s culture section and proof-read articles and what not.
Candidates must be available at least seven days a week (minimum) and must receive college credit for their work. We are looking for an intern who is highly organized, eager (but not over eager: Karen), familiar with the content, independent, male, has some coding experience, is willing to play IM kickball for The Crimson, and who identifies as a Capricorn.
To apply, email a cover letter in the form of a haiku that clearly outlines your availability. all previous experience, and personally traits that make you a perfect fit for FM’s mission statement. Stick to the 5-7-5 format, and avoid slant rhymes.
Testimonials from Past FM Champions:
FM Intern 2010
This internship was totally amazing, and gave me the experience necessary to comp The Crimson. I got to transcribe interviews, brainstorm pitches, and get coffee (for myself—and drink it outside, the Crimson is a strictly drug free zone). No, I was never allowed to say my pitches out loud, but just thinking about a profile of John, the Annenberg swiper, was enough.
FM Intern 2011
I don’t know what I was expecting at 12 a.m. on a Friday night, but it wasn’t this. The food was incredibly greasy (I got some scallion pancakes) and the service was super slow. Plus the waiter carded me twice when I got a scorpion bowl. Which, I might add, was too sweet.
Two stars. $$
FM Intern 2012
What this internship lacked in any sort of stipend it made up for in needless copying. You would not believe how rewarding wasting paper is.

What? You mean this was unpaid?
