Desperately Seeking Someone (to help with Galus Australis)

October 2, 2009 – 1:55 am8 Comments

internAre you the sort of person who weeps at the sight of “you are” contracted to “your”?

Do you always have a piece of chalk handy for correcting restaurant menu spelling mistakes?

Does the impeding release of the fifth edition of the Macquarie Dictionary give you that tingly feeling in your tuches? (November 1, peeeps! [*Happy dance*] You know what we’re asking for for Christmukkah.)

If you answered yes to any or all of the above, WE NEED YOU.

Galus Australis is seeking a capable student intern (or interns) to help with editing, web design, marketing and general dogsbody tasks (a few hours a week). It’s an excellent opportunity to gain some web development/publishing experience and will surely look tres hip on your CV.

For now, the position is unpaid, but we provide SCINTILLATING conversation and excellent nosh for free. And you get to play a part in the very important task of cultivating intellectual Jewish-Australian life (cough, cough). Howzat?

Email your resume and a brief shpiel to editorial at galusaustralis dot com if you’re interested.

    Just to add to this:

    There are several different roles to help out with (You do NOT need to be able to do all of these, as we’d be happy to have multiple people fulfill different roles).

    1) Editing
    2) Journalism (Interviewing people, writing content etc)
    3) Marketing (Liaising with and sourcing advertisers etc)
    4) Graphic design
    5) Web design/programming

    If you are ‘willing and able’ in any of the above, let us know.

    What are you paying?

  • frosh says:

    Hi Chook,

    For now the position is unpaid (apart from free nosh etc). However, if the person fulfils the marketing role (as briefly described above), there may well be scope for payment.

    The position(s) might suit someone who is (but not necessarily limited to) a student looking to get some good work experience in one or more of the above skill sets, as well as bolster their CV and get a good reference etc.

    Do you have to live in Melbourne?
    Is it full time or part time?

  • rachsd says:

    Hi Ariel,

    You don’t have to live in Melbourne. In fact, it would be great to have someone in another Australian city. Hours are negotiable, but as the position will not be paid, we’d envision that it would be part-time rather than full-time.

  • Gary Mallin says:

    Are yelling, screaming and red pencils prerequisites? Sounds like you need to sell a few ads (shock, horror, probe) to pay at least a little bit.

  • frosh says:

    Hi Gary,

    You’re right.

    Maybe you folks at The Age would like to advertise on Galus in order to improve the relationship your paper has with the Jewish community.

    The Age – We’re listening to what Jews have to say!

    Hey frosh,
    I’d love to help out with the first three positions listed in you’re initial comment :)
