My Mobile Year Internship

The Yale Instructional Technology Group [ITG] is looking for two intrepid, tech-savvy, and uniquely articulate students to get paid to live “mobile-ly” for the 2011-2012 academic year. If that sounds tantalizing, we encourage you to submit an application for a newly created “My Mobile Year” Internship.

What is a “My Mobile Year” Intern? We don’t really know yet. Ideally you’ll be part research analyst, part tech writer, part blogger, part vlogger, part twitterati, part humorist, and part critic. The internship will entail using mobile technology (smart phones, iPads, laptops, mobile apps, etc.) as much as is productive, pedagogically sound, and fun in your experience as a Yale student. You will also be required to chronicle your experiences publicly using whatever media you gravitate to: blogs, Twitter, Facebook, Google+, podcasts, videos, etc. ITG will provide the mobile devices and applications you need to go mobile if necessary.

Tell us why you should be our “My Mobile Year” Intern! To apply, send an email to itg@yale.edu containing two stunning paragraphs describing why you want to share your mobile year with the world. Include another paragraph about your prior experience with mobile devices and apps. Also provide links or attachments for two other writing samples. One of your samples can be a radio-style documentary, a photo/text montage, or a video.

This internship is open to sophomores, juniors, and seniors.

Pay: $15 an hour for up to 10 hours a week.

Application deadline:  9:00a.m. on Monday, September 19th, 2011
