Oh Honey, I’m Hiring
Stop rolling your eyes at me! Blogging isn’t a joke! Running a website isn’t easy! You’ll see when you’re my intern! Now, I really very truly am seeking an intern but before you send your resume (and by resume I mean a photo of you wearing your best MR look,) I don’t really care where you go or went to school, or about your GPA or even if you have a law degree. I just want to know that you can:
A. Identify who snapped the above photo.
A3. Write. Be here Mondays through Thursdays. Occasionally pop out east and make sangria with my mom and me.
A4. Get along with my parents, since, you know, I live with them.
B. Contain yourself and promise not to try to steal any of my shoes. I worked hard for them and this has been a previous problem. Maybe I’ll give you some if you wear a size 6. Maybe.
C. Open boxes, pack boxes, write-up and file invoices. Kidding about packing boxes. We typically just open them and it’s usually fairly fun as I use a violent ring to do so.
D. Sing along to Vampire Weekend, Joe Dassin, Frank Sinatra, Lana del Rey…on demand
E. Not curse my existence when I tell you I have a meeting on 13th street and to meet me at Milk Studios with this huge bag of clothes [insert bag of clothes here] in t-minus two hours.
F. Be well-versed in other blogs.
G. Be well-versed in Isabel Marant, Carven, Phillip Lim, Proenza Schouler.
H. Work with Excel. Just kidding, we don’t do spreadsheets.
I. Understand that Auntie Flow brings out the worst in me, and even so, still love me.
J. Read e-commerce clothing sites such as Shopbop, La Garconne and Nasty Gal like newspapers: front – 2 – back.
K. Dance the flamenco, be wildly well organized.
K2. We’re making a press book, children.
L.Tell funny jokes.
L2. Like make milk squirt out of my nose funny.
M. Tweet, facebook, tumble. And only to our advantage. No bitching about your shitty job because this is going to fun, fun, fun!
N. Be proficient enough in camera snapping to take the occasional photograph. Of me.
O. Or yourself. You never know what’s up ma’sleeve.
…So, do you think you have what it takes? Email me! firstname.lastname@example.org. Pop quiz to follow. I guess it’s not so pop as I just told you about it.
