Help wanted in Chicago: Unpaid interns

We need help. Specifically, we need the kind of help that only unpaid, Chicago-based interns can provide. What kind of unpaid interns you ask? Well, let me tell you: We need someone who is engaged with our content (and pop culture in general) and not afraid of the Internet or transcribing hours of interviews. There will be other tasks involved as well. Here's the official pitch:

Gain valuable experience working for The A.V. Club. We are currently looking for an editorial intern in our Chicago office. Duties will include, but will not be limited to, transcribing interviews, various organizational tasks, web projects, possible writing opportunities, and generally assisting The A.V. Club staff.

Requirements: Candidates should possess strong writing and verbal skills, organizational aptitude, an ability to work reliably with others on deadlines, and a strong interest in pop culture. HTML skills and web savvy will be considered a major plus. Interns work up to 20 hours per week. The schedule is flexible, but we are looking for someone who can come in on a regular basis. This is an unpaid internship, but a great opportunity to work with a nationally recognized paper. Check with your college or university for possible credit. We're looking for candidates able to start in the next two weeks.
