This Might Be the Best Internship Ever. Get Paid to Travel and Drink Beer
We thought Netflix was offering the best summer internship. Travel the world and spend your days on Instagram -- how could it get better?
Well, you could get paid to drink beer while you do it.
Yup. World of Beer has pulled into the lead for “Best Internship Everrr” with its Drink It Intern position.
The craft beer tavern franchise is recruiting three interns to “to travel the country this summer and live, drink and share the best of the beer world with brew lovers everywhere.”
Interns will travel the U.S. and countries around the world to find “beer stories” and document them through blogging, video, photos, social media and pretty much anything else you can imagine.
The internship starts May 2017, lasts three months and pays $12,000 plus travel expenses, the press release states. That’s about $4,000 a month, which is pretty freakin’ good for an internship.
Imbibing isn’t explicitly required of the position, but we imagine it comes with the territory.
The big question is, will WOB cover your bar tab? Yes, yes it will.
How to Apply for the WOB Internship
The Drink It Intern requirements are pretty minimal.
You have to be at least 21 years old and be available to work part-time and travel between May and August.
“Whether you’re a photographer or writer, social media maverick or beer blog surfer, WOB is looking for you,” the press release states. “Adventure seekers and storytellers, beer experts or novices, brewery nerds and foodie fans are all open to apply.”
Fill out your application here before March 26, 2017, and share a one-minute video to introduce yourself and wow recruiters.
