You Can Haz Internship: This Animal Talent Agency Is Looking For Interns
Grumpy Cat. Doug the Pug. Lil Bub. Tuna.
You know who I’m talking about, since these pets are some of the most popular animal influencers on the Internet. Yes, that’s a thing, and there are millions of dollars in product endorsement, merchandise and licensing agreements that go along with their furry fame.
But not every animal can hack it as an influencer.
Take my dog Josie for example. She may have an adorable underbite, but the most Instagram likes I’ve managed to scrounge up with a photo of her barely racked up 20.
Doug the Pug’s Christmas portraits, however, have regularly cracked 100,000 likes.
Here’s your chance to get in with a company that manages more than 100 animal influencers: The Dog Agency is looking for an intern in the New York City area.
Of All the Animal Internships, This One is the Most Internet-y
First, we have to mention that this is an unpaid internship, but Dog Agency talent relations manager Calla Chuy said in an email that college credit will be awarded.
For this semester-long internship, you’ll be responsible for writing articles for the agency’s content website, PetInsider. You’ll also create content for the firm’s social media pages, help build its online audience and assist with marketing initiatives. The hours are flexible, and will depend on your class schedule.
Oh yeah, you must love pets.
