Hi Soompiers,

Are you looking to gain a diverse range of experience in the Internet media field -- while having a fun time doing it? Soompi is seeking a part-time or full-time general intern, based in Seoul, to help with community management, promotions, and editorial duties. Due to the nature of the position, assignments will be extremely varied but will allow you to gain experience in different fields. They may include: running promotions with entertainment agencies, analyzing site traffic, using social media to publicize content, writing and editing articles, helping the volunteer staff, performing technical support, and miscellaneous duties as required.

Candidates must be able to report to our office in Seoul, preferably on a full-time basis (M-F 10 am - 7 pm). They must be proactive, detail-oriented, and able to juggle multiple tasks at once. Extra consideration will be given to bilingual candidates (Korean/English), as well as to longtime Soompi members with a deep understanding of our culture and community. The internship will be paid, and it will start immediately (or at least as close to immediately as we can get). Make sure that you can work legally in Korea (H-1 and F-4 visas are fine).

If you are interested in applying, please submit your cover letter and resume to melkimx@soompi.com. Writing samples are also appreciated, as is any type of information that lets us learn more about you!

Here are a couple (badly taken) pictures of our new office; it's a nice place with a lot of nice, fun people! Hope you can join the team!

Until when is the deadline for the submission of applications.. And is it possible that an overseas Soompi fan can apply but soon he/she will be based in Korea before being accepted. Thank you for the reply.

Can i apply and then spend all my time in the cafeteria? I like free drinks =D

Hope you get a lot of applicants, i would apply but you know...i just happen to be separated from the Enswer building by about 5000 miles of sea, not the greatest morning commute i must say (Don't even think trains operate that far~)

Is it possible for someone who lives halfway around the world to apply? Or is it just specific to korean citizens?!

^^ maybe about two weeks, although the sooner you apply, the better! and yes, as long as you know you'll be in seoul, that should be fine, although we would prefer to interview you in person.

Are you strictly looking for long-term interns? I'm greatly interested in the internship, but I'm only going to be in Seoul from July 2012 till the end of December. Also, is the email address provided in the post the actual email or is it via PM?

Anyway all the best to those that applied.

Ah, why now??? I wish it were earlier. I've been in Korea for a year and will be going back in 3 months =(. Quick question though, will you be able to sponsor someone if hired? And where in Seoul are you guys located? I may know a few people interested.

I am highly interested in this internship opportunity that you are giving out! But i have a few questions.

Are you looking for multiple interns? I am going to be studying abroad next year (Sept 2012-June2013), would it be possible to apply for a part time internship? and it's not a requirement to know korean as well? And for the writing example, it's kind of like a personal statement?

Thank you! Looking forward to seeing the progression of this!
