Fine coincidence this is, then, because we're currently accepting applications for summer internships! And maybe we'll even hire you!
Hey, we said maybe.
Some requirements: You need to be enrolled in college; you need to be able to convince your professors to let you get college credit for this experience; you need to be willing to work for said experience and credit instead of cash; and you need to be here at least 20 hours a week.
In exchange, we'll send you to all the coolest shows, help you set up interviews with all the coolest musicians, teach you how to blog and, OK, maybe how to Dougie, too. And, if you're really good, maybe someone will make a YouTube video about you!
If this all sounds good to you, and if you think you're a pretty decent writer, and if you think you don't have terrible taste in music, and if you think you kind of know what you're talking about when it comes to music, and if you can recognize that this is a run-on sentence, then you should definitely apply. Do so by emailing me here with a quick note on why you're interested, and with a resume and some writing clips attached. And remember to spell-check that sucker, too. Intern application 101, duh.
Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
