7 Reasons Why MuggleNet Internships Are Awesome

7 Reasons Why MuggleNet Internships Are Awesome

1. You’ll make lifelong friends.
It’s okay, you can admit it to us. Maybe you don’t have as many Harry Potter friends as you would like. What’s a Harry Potter friend? Someone you can share your passion for Potter with. Someone you can become best friends with (most of us made best friends through MuggleNet). When volunteering for us, you’ll meet fellow staff members who love Potter just as much as you do, and it forms friendships you’ll keep forever.

2. This stuff is great resume material.
MuggleNet has made its fair share of contributions to that all important piece of paper, from college admissions to work applications. What you do on MuggleNet will most certainly boost your resume and benefit you in the future. Plus, trying to find out what house your potential boss is in makes for great interview discussion.

3. Your work will be seen by millions of people each year.
Want to feel the international power of Potter? Reach fans in China or interact with those in South Africa? With millions of Muggles per year visiting our site, your name and work will catch the eyes of countless people across the globe. We’ve heard that a few news outlets read our site as well.

4. Guaranteed protection from the Dark Lord.
Need we say more? If you’re a Harry Potter fan, you know the dangers presented by Lord Voldemort and his followers. MuggleNet promises to shield you from such perils. If you however choose to wander into the realm of dark magic, we are not legally responsible for the outcome and refuse to post bail for your inevitable trip to Azkaban.

5. Cover events for MuggleNet in your area.
You never know when a Harry Potter event will happen in your neck of the woods. From premieres to book releases (yes, we anticipate more) to conventions, you can be the on-site source reporting live or recapping your experience for the millions of Potter fans around the world. These events are not only a lot of fun, but great networking opportunities.

6. You can do work in your pajamas. Or naked. We don’t judge.
It doesn’t get much easier than rolling out of bed (or sometimes staying in it), grabbing your laptop, and logging on to the Web. You don’t have to shower, brush your teeth, or comb your hair. Just ask Emerson. If you really feel inclined to put on a suit and tie so that people think you’re trading stocks or crunching numbers, we’ll learn to live with it but mock you constantly.

7. Great opportunity for personal growth.
MuggleNet gives you the chance to grow and tap your endless pool of potential. Your input and knowledge is an essential contribution to the overall success of the site. Whether coding, creating graphics, or posting news is your primary responsibility, you’re guaranteed to get a taste of it all. Oh, and you’re allowed to make mistakes from time to time; we promise not to use the Cruciatus Curse.

    Hi, I’m thinking of applying, but I do have some questions, if anyone could answer them? First of all, how ages would the internships be available to, and second, when you say what type of writing, does that mean articles, memes, The Quibbler etc.? Last question would be, does it matter where you live or where you are from if you want to apply?
