Judgepedia:Spring 2011 Internship Program
Judgepedia is looking for two interns to join us for the Spring 2011 semester. Current students and recent graduates may apply. Interns will work remotely, so only a computer with internet access is needed.
The internship is unpaid but you may be able to earn academic credit for your work.
The ten week program will begin on Monday, January 24 and end on Friday, April 1. Interns will be expected work a minimum of ten hours per week, but those hours will be arranged according to your schedule.
Working with Judgepedia, you will primarily build encyclopedic pages of judges and candidates running for election in 2011. The nature of this work is such that will you gain valuable skills in research, writing, analyzing information and an introduction to wikis. At the same time, you will contribute to the body knowledge about an oft neglected branch of government. Along the way, you will learn more about the judicial branch and judicial elections.
While your work environment will be dictated by wherever you choose to set up shop, Judgepedia as an organization that encourages hard work, enthusiasm and a passion for voter education. As a young website, we appreciate input from all our staff members and are excited to hear your ideas.
With a staff full of varied degrees and backgrounds, we appreciate the contributions to be made by students of any majors. While some background in government is preferred, it is not a necessity. We are mainly looking for dedicated, enthusiastic interns to help us improve our content. Confidence in writing ability will assist you in this position.
