Earlier today we posted a job description for a Communications intern at the Wikimedia Foundation.  This is a great opportunity for someone studying in a communications related field (marketing, communications, public relations, journalism – or others) to get extraordinary hands-on experience.  We have an enormous amount of work on our plate.  Handling the communications needs of a global organization with hundreds of millions of users around the world is no simple task.

If you’re interested and up for the hard work, send along your resume and some recent samples of your writing work.  The internship could last anywhere from 3 to 6 months, with some flexibility. We can also support school credit if it fits within your program.  For now we’re primarily looking for someone to work with us in our San Francisco offices, but as this is a rotating opportunity we may look at other options in the future.

Join the team that supports Wikipedia and its huge sister projects.  Help us help our volunteers make the internet a better place!
