For my sins, I’ve been asked to help coordinate the Herald-Tribune’s summer intern program.
The deal I cut allows me to enslave one intern — at least part-time — to help out with The Gun Writer. And folks, we can certainly use the help!
We don’t pay our interns, but instead offer college credit.
All students are encouraged to apply — especially Veterans!
This is the perfect opportunity for a college student to learn some old-fashioned, ass-kicking, real-news journalism — the kind that still matters — the kind that holds people accountable — the kind that the candidate will be proud to put their name on.
A successful candidate can expect to be worked half to death covering everything from breaking news to long-form investigative stories to machine gun shoots.
- Must be awesome!
Desirable qualities (negotiable):
- Should have a DD-214.
- Should know how to shoot, move and communicate.
- Should be able to articulate the difference between gas piston and gas impingement.
- Should practice good trigger discipline and muzzle control.
- Should have a working knowledge of most major Caribbean rums.
- Should have a sense of humor.
- Should be able to work with little or no supervision.
- Should never make mistakes (or at least own them).
- Should be able to shoot Col. Cooper’s “El Presidente” drill — clean — in under seven seconds.
- Should want to have a hell of a lot of fun.
