Where’s my intern?

As Gap Year Escape grows so does the workload. Are you my new intern?

I must admit that blogging and running an online business started off as a hobby and became a lifestyle. Like any successful business, they grow, which of course means more work. I thought it was about time I got an intern.

I do need to manage your expectations. The work you will be doing isn’t glamorous, may even lean towards tedious at times but it’s fundamental to what I do.

What will you be doing for me?

  • Search Engine Optimization
  • Social Media
  • Article writing
  • Networking
  • Research for my new book
  • Advertising
  • Reviewing tours and activities in Australia and New Zealand

What I am looking for?

  • The ability to commit to approximately 15 hours a week.
  • Available for a 6 week period starting August/September.
  • You have plans to travel to Australia and New Zealand end of 2010 or 2011.
  • A keen interest in writing, travel and social media.
  • The ability to work efficiently and self-motivate.
  • Professionalism. You will be representing Gap Year Escape and that means me.
  • Good written English.

What do you get in return?

  • My knowledge on social media and online marketing.
  • Ongoing mentoring through the life of your blog.
  • A reference should you apply for an online media or marketing role.
  • I have also arranged for you to attend on my behalf (worth over $1200):
    • 5 Day Sydney to Byron Bay Surf Tour, Australia
    • Great Ocean Road, Australia
    • Mornington Peninsula, Australia
    • White Water Rafting, New Zealand
    • Franz Josef Glacier Hike, New Zealand
  • Additional tours and activities may be arranged nearer the time.

To summarise, in exchange for doing some less than glamorous work online from the comfort of a computer anywhere in the world you get; knowledge, experience and awesome trips. Sound reasonable to you? So if you’re planning on travelling to Australia and New Zealand in the near future and are interested send an e-mail to amar.hussain [at} rocketmail [dot] com. I’m a businessman so I appreciate a CV but this is online media. Be creative if you want to get my attention and a writing sample would help. Also, don’t try and astound me with eloquent prose. I’m not that kind of writer.

Look forward to hearing from you.

Kind regards,
