Django Internships at the Journal-World

I wrote this post in 2007, more than 15 years ago. It may be very out of date, partially or totally incorrect. I may even no longer agree with this, or might approach things differently if I wrote this post today. I rarely edit posts after writing them, but if I have there'll be a note at the bottom about what I changed and why.

I’m extremely excited to announce our new internship program here in Lawrence. Starting this summer we’re going to be hiring interns to join our kick-ass team and learn the ropes.

If you’re a student, or if you’re trying to break into the world of next-generation web development, I can’t think of a better place to get started. You’ll get to spend up to six months developing cool toys (in Django, of course), live in one of the coolest towns in the country, and learn web development from the best.

This is not some namby-pamby fetch-us-coffee-do-our-grunt-work internship; we’ll expect our interns to plan, design, and go through a couple of iterations on a complete application. You should expect to work your butt off and learn a huge amount. And if things go well, there’s a good chance we’ll be offering you a full-time position at the end of the program.

We’ll be paying a generous stipend – more than enough to live comfortably (and eat extremely well!) in Lawrence. If you’re a student, we’re more than happy to work with your school to help you get credit, too.

If this sounds fun to you, drop me an email – jacob -at- lawrence -dot- com – and let me know why I should choose you instead of some other schmuck. Include links to work you’ve done or code you’ve written (in any language) and a short resume, plain text or HTML only.
