Be My Replacement! Mercury Seeks A News Intern

All of this could be yours

Today is my last day as the Portland Mercury's valued news intern. There are going to be some substantially awesome size-11 shoes to fill when I go: do you have what it takes?

The news intern does research and writes real articles and blog posts. You should have some experience putting a news story together. You will get clips, exposure, and freelance pay on things that are printed in the paper. You will gain exciting friendships with the Mercury's awesome staff and even awesomer commenters. You will NOT get sexually harassed by Patrick Alan Coleman (See, Patrick? I wrote it in just like you asked).

If you think you could be what the Mercury needs, send an email to that includes:
* cover letter
* resume
* three published (print or blog) clips
* three ~100-word ideas for articles

I will miss you, Blogtown—stay in touch!
