The word 'internship' usually invokes mental images of summer days spent in a dreadfully boring office cubicle, running coffee errands for the boss, and getting paid below average wage. But Florida-based craft-beer chain World of Beer is dashing that stereotype for the second year in a row with their Drink It Internship program.
Taking off this summer, the program will see three lucky candidates travel to breweries around the United States, sample craft brews, document their experiences via social media, and get paid $12,000. The only requirements stated are that you must love to travel and be open to trying all kinds of beer. We have a feeling they won't be having much trouble finding qualified candidates.
Photography, blogging and videography skills are also an asset, but "adventure seekers and storytellers, beer experts or novices, brewery nerds and foodie fans [are] all open to apply”. Last year's interns even got to a take trip to Guinness headquarters in Ireland – so submit that video application before the end of March, and you might be able to finally tell your mother that yes, you do drink for a living.
