The June gloom is lifting here in Southern California, and Inhabitat is looking for a few great interns ASAP before the summer sun starts blazing in July. That’s right – Inhabitat is looking for interns for the first time on the West Coast, and we hope you’re just as excited as we are to continue expand our editorial coverage in the City of Angels. Inhabitat is a rapidly growing green design website and there’s a lot to be done behind the scenes, so we’re looking for a rock star intern that can assist both our editorial and web development teams. But don’t think we want someone to fetch our coffee – as an Inhabitern, you’ll be given the opportunity to write for the site and play a central role in a stellar team, and you’ll have a great chance to grow and become a vital part of a small start-up.
