The ultimate dream of college students every where is about to come true. This summer, World of Beer is offering a beer-drinking, travel-heavy summer internship, and they'll be interviewing candidates this weekend in Tempe.
The bar and restaurant chain is accepting applications for its Drink It Intern program through Saturday, March 26. Duties for the world’s coolest summer job include reporting on the global beer industry, sharing travel tales on social media, and gaining insight from beer experts at DRAFT MAGAZINE.
Oh, and did we mention it pays $12,000? No, we are not making this up.
“But I have a job,” you're thinking. Not a problem. You don't have to quit your day job to get paid to write, travel, and drink all summer. And if you hate online applications, that's okay, too. The national search for interns is coming to metro Phoenix during the last day of submissions.
Potential candidates can interview in person this Saturday, March 27, at World of Beer Tempe, 526 South Mill Avenue, from 1 to 3 p.m. At the event, would-be interns will have to get on the WOB stage to prove to a panel of judges they have what it takes.
In-person applicants are automatically bumped up a few slots, but if you can’t make it to the event this weekend, you can also submit your application on the World of Beer Drink It Intern website.
