Since we’ve already covered Gawker Media on One Day, One Internship, we’re going to recycle some of that post for today’s post. Unfortunately, some of the information has changed because Gawker’s owner, Nick Denton, is full of doom and gloom and has made some serious changes to his company. In case you’re not familiar with Gawker, it’s a network of
12 10 blogs that consists of Defamer (L.A. Gossip), io9 (Science Fiction), Valleywag (Silicon Valley Gossip), Deadspin (Sports), Jezebel (Celebrity, Sex, Fashion), The Consumerist (Consumer’s Rights) (sold off to Consumer Reports), Jalopnik (Cars), Gawker (Manhattan Gossip), Kotaku (Video Games), Lifehacker (Productivity), Gizmodo (Gadgets), Fleshbot (Adult, no link – you can find that one on your own) (also sold off). It’s an impressive network of sites, some trashy, and some insanely useful. Gawker Media’s network has been identified as being the most valuable blog with some estimates of a $150 million valuation. Still Denton has been so concerned with the economy that he has been cutting blogs that aren’t profitable and laying off staff. Maybe his tune has finally changed, because it looks like Gawker is hiring again.
Gawker offers a ton of internships, but entry level jobs are much harder to come by. Luckily, they just posted an opportunity for an entry level techno/data/marketing wiz to join Gawker Media’s ad operations team on their Lifehacker blog. It’s all about analytics, so you’ll be doing a lot of what I do every day to monitor traffic on One Day, One Job, but you’ll be doing it for one of the biggest blog networks in the world. The job posting includes all of the details, and the job is located at Gawker’s office in NYC. To apply you can send a cover letter and resume (or maybe you want to be more creative with how you apply) to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Since Gawker doesn’t seem to have a central repository for their job postings, they seem to randomly post them on some of their blogs. If you’re looking for future job postings, you might want to try a google search for “email@example.com” or search the specific blogs (here are some tips on how to do that).
