Your Dream Jobs

Every Monday morning, America's Future Foundation sends out AFF Room 101, an e-mail that keeps its members abreast of its upcoming activities. The e-mails contain a section called Your Dream Job, which advertises one exciting position, usually in the DC area.

In the same spirit, and because job-hunting can suck, I'm starting a sporadic series of blog posts called Your Dream Job. Here's the first:

1. Looking for a new media internship? Do video production and Web design for CEI.

2. Work at YouTube: "YouTube is an extremely team-oriented, creative work place. Every single employee has a voice in the choices we make and the features we implement. Besides all the traditional benefits (competitive salary, full medical/dental, stock options) you'll have the opportunity to directly influence a revolutionary service used by millions of people every day. Oh, and you'll get free snacks and your very own YouTube T-shirt."

3. is seeking “intelligent, charismatic and humorous” actors to play hosts on its new business news Webcast. Candidates are encouraged to “Think Tina Fey.” According to a spokeswoman for Condé Nast, the daily business Webcast will be part of the refreshed Portfolio Web site, which will graduate from its test stage on August 23 with new bloggers, additional content and a redesigned home page. (The Webcast will be introduced at a date to be determined.) “It’s not going to be a fake news show at all; it’s going to be a serious news program with a twist,” said a Condé Nast spokeswoman, adding that the Webcast would be written by journalists and that both journalists and actors are being considered as presenters.
