Job: Spa Week Intern

Posted on January 20, 2012




Yes, it appears to be a paid gig at Spa Week. How can you tell? Well, I wouldn’t post it if it weren’t, what with unpaid internships being the way the middle-class keeps its grip on certain industries, and us being so not about that. This job is in-person, in New York, and yes, it’s probably best if you know how to wrangle a photocopier and a coffee machine.

Spa Week Daily is now hiring a brand new part time blogger/social media intern. Please pass this along to anyone you think would be a great addition to the Spa Week team—someone whose stories you’d love to read here on Spa Week Daily.
