Apply to be a Happy Place Intern!
I am lucky to have Clint Worthington as the editor, co-host and producer of Nathan Rabin’s Happy Cast but otherwise Nathan Rabin’s Happy Place is something of a solo operation. I have been relatively comfortable with that up until this point. The one man band nature of Nathan Rabin’s Happy Place has allowed me to retain complete control over the site and God knows the acoustic-guitar, harmonica, knee cymbals format of the one-man band ensures the most beautiful and harmonious music imaginable.
But I have been doing this by myself for two solid years now and I feel like I could definitely benefit from help. And at this stage in my twenty-two year career as an author, pop culture writer, columnist and small business owner I feel like I have a lot to offer in terms of mentorship and experience.
To that end I am looking for an intern to help Nathan Rabin’s Happy Place and Declan-Haven publishing grow and evolve from plucky mom and pop operations to world-conquering corporate monoliths with a veritable stranglehold on global media.
I am looking for someone ambitious and hard-working, with a deep knowledge and appreciation of the site. In other words, if you think I suck this would not be the position for you. Strong copy-editing skills are also important, as is familiarity with, or better yet, mastery of, Squarespace and other similar sites and services.
I’m looking for a motivated self-starter to help me grow the business, develop The Weird Accordion to Al book and work with me on a regular basis to help make this the best, most lucrative possible website and The Weird Accordion to Al book a winner.
Nathan Rabin’s Happy Place is not just a small business: it’s basically one dude so this internship promises lots of hands-on experience at a growing company from a man with more than two decades of experience operating at the highest level of pop culture media.
Living in my hometown of Atlanta or the surrounding area would be a big plus but is not a prerequisite for the gig.
So if you’re looking to collaborate directly with a veteran author and writer you’re in luck! Alas, I’m only really making enough to keep the lights on at this point so this will be an unpaid position but that could change over time if the site “blows up” as the young people no longer say.
It’s taken me a long time to get to this point. The Wobbly in me feels weird being anybody’s boss but I want this site to live and grow and thrive and I feel like I have much to offer an intern at this stage of my life and career. And, you know, it’ll look good on the old resume.
Help me help you help me!
