Join the D*S Team: 2013 DIY Interns

by Amy Azzarito

Please pardon this mini-interruption this morning with a little behind-the-scenes business, but I wanted to do a quick announcement that we’re looking for a DIY Intern! Now that we have an office, with a well-stocked craft closet, we’d love to a few more hands helping us make projects each week. We’re looking for a self-motivated, creative person (or a few people) who can help us execute some of the many projects that we produce each week. Styling and photography experience or skills are a plus! –Amy

  • Position: DIY Intern
  • Duties: Work with the Design*Sponge team to develop and execute DIY projects.
  • Payment: Stipend
  • Location: Must be in the New York City metro area
  • Time Required: Must be able to come into the Design*Sponge office in Greenpoint, Brooklyn one or two days per week.

If you’d like to join our team and craft with us, please email SUBMISSIONS AT DESIGNSPONGE DOT COM (subject line “DIY Intern ”) with a resume, cover letter and links or images to 3-5 recent projects you’ve made. If you currently run your own blog or write for another, please include that information.
