That’s right. We here at TFM are looking to stock our Austin, Texas office with an all-star team of college interns to help us handle a wide array of tasks ranging from social media management to content creation to podcasting to video content to losing to me in Golden Tee Golf/ping pong.
If you’re interested in a career in social media, digital media, writing, editing, or you just want to sort through funny videos all day while enjoying the delicious fruits of our supremely well-stocked break room, this internship is for you. That last part isn’t even a joke. The first task we have lined up for our newest batch of interns is to help us curate the funny-as-shit user-submitted videos that we post to our 1.1 million follower Instagram account. Equally fun tasks accompany that one, too. As long as you can handle Dan’s disgusting protein farts and that holier-than-thou air that marks Dorn, life as a TFM Intern is as sweet as it gets in the internship world.
Here’s what we’re looking for in potential TFM interns:
•Member of a fraternity or sorority who currently attends an Austin, Texas-area college (UT-Austin, Texas State, St. Ed’s, ACC, etc.)
•Able to work with us out of TFM Headquarters for around 8-12 hours a week during our work hours of 9-6 Monday-Friday
•Proficient at Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, and Snapchat. WordPress, Hootsuite, and Dropbox skills are a major plus.
•VERY firm grasp of the English language (if you ever use the wrong “your” or “to” you’ll be forced to take multiple laps around our expansive office complex)
•Not a dumbass
•Not a boner/tryhard
Benefits of interning with TFM:
•The experience and visibility that comes with working for a comedy site that brings in millions of unique monthly visitors
•The ability to co-manage numerous social media accounts with 1,000,000+ followers, which makes for a great resume builder
•We plan to feature some interns on podcasts, in videos, and in articles, which could be yuuuuge for your personal brand/social media following
•If we like you, we’ll write you a letter of recommendation come big boy job/grad school time
•The best snack game this side of the Colorado
•While this internship is unpaid, it may qualify for school credit at your institution
•Memories that will last a lifetime (or something like that)
