Too bad I'm none of those things. :(

I'll do it, except I live in the Uk...

Posted by Raven_Sword

If i could move to SF and if I could write worth a damn id do it.
Posted by ArchScabby

If I make more pointless posts everyday will I become an over active member?  Because if I have to make posts that actually have substance or a point I'm not going to qualify.

Edited by Mikemcn

I like living in the frozen North too much
 
And does this mean Matt Kessler is going to become emperor of the universe?

Posted by fisher81

I won't be looking for an internship until the summer of 2013. We'll see then haha.

Add me to that list. Good luck to whoever applies.
Posted by guiseppe

I'm all of those except a resident of the US. So that kind of killed it.

Posted by Peacemaker

If I lived in SF I would be all over this.

Oh how I wish I could...

Posted by Tofford

I would seriously move from the UK to SF for a summer to be an intern. I would love to get involved in the real working of whisky sites. Guess I just need to wait for Giantbomb Uk to launch haha

If it was possible for me to move to San fransisco, i  totally would. But I'm stuck in Illinois right now. Maybe in a few years.

I think it's great how you're opening this up to everyone on the forums (who fulfils the criteria).

Edited by FluxWaveZ

Whoa, didn't realize this was paid internship.  Learning and getting paid at the same time?  Awesome.

PLEASE get a sexy chick this time.

They already have their next intern and he's a guy called Steve, I believe.  His username here is "Lemon". "
PLEASE get a sexy chick next time.

A US resident? Sigh.

Posted by RecSpec

This would've sounded cool for me like 3 years ago.
 
Unfortunately I love my job and the benefits with it.

Posted by AlwaysBeClothing

Would love to have an opportunity to work at Whiskey, we'll see how the admission process goes.

Posted by LiquidPrince

If I wasn't Canadian, I'd jump on this opportunity.

Posted by one_2nd

I would if I was 18 and lived anywhere near California..

Posted by ajamafalous

Awkward linked to Bodega made me laugh.

Edited by jkz

Thinking about trying to hop in on this either before or after my first year of college (going to school for journalism, and there are clearly no journalists more professional than the Whiskey-Media-crew). 
 

Out of curiosity, how far in advance should we get the ball rolling on this?

Posted by buzz_killington

I thought Vinny got the internship... Weird.

Posted by Djeffers03

I thought Lemon was the new intern?

Posted by Simulacrum

If only I didn't live 5 hours away. :(

Posted by Make_Me_Mad

If by "Move to the SF area" you meant "Owns a cardboard box and could live on the corner outside the office", then I'd be there tomorrow.

Posted by Devil240Z

Shit I get 10 bucks an hour doing a job I hate. I would kill for this gig. too bad I live two states up. 

Posted by PerryVandell

Yes!  I'm glad I live only 45 minutes to an hour away from San Francisco!

Posted by Azteck

I'm only around 16 hours away by plane from the US but SIGN ME UP!
 
Oh wait, over 18? Damn.

This is so awesome, wish I was I had a second home over there, don't get me wrong, I love it here in the UK but...GiantBomb man!! Must be great to whoever becomes next intern.

Posted by Apathylad

I would probably qualify if I lived in the area, but I don't. 

Posted by CL60

Does Canada count as being a US citizen living in San Fransisco?

Posted by EpicSteve
