Piero Scaruffi's Editorial Internship Program offers college students and recent graduates a unique opportunity to be involved in many aspects of a website's editorial procedures.
Interns work on a part-time, unpaid basis for three to six months and receive practical experience in critical reading and analysis, research, fact checking and the general workings of an on-line archive and magazine.
Each intern works closely with Piero Scaruffi, an author and journalist with over twenty years of experience and thirteen published books.
Each intern takes part in the creation of the on-line archive and magazine, and is encouraged to generate ideas.

Applicants should have experience with the genres of contemporary music and be fluent in the English language. Experience with the internet and working knowledge of HTML (or willingness to learn it) are a must.

Specific intern responsibilities include

  • Biographies of Silicon Valley protagonists and especially companies, later extending to other socioeconomic regions of the USA
  • A sociological study of Silicon Valley over the decades to complement my History of Silicon Valley
    - Turning the Powerpoint slides of Piero Scaruffi's class "A History of Knowledge" into JPG files that can be posted on the website, adding relevant visual content (maps, pictures), proof-editing, fact-checking, expanding, etc
    - Revising all history's timelines to include the month and not only the year
    - A sociological study of Silicon Valley
    - Creating a book on the contemporary world out of the database of articles by revising, adding, compiling
    - Researching additional data for the History of Silicon Valley, notably the month of each event mentioned in the book and the sources of funding for each Silicon Valley firm mentioned in the book

    This internship requires roughly a 10-hours-a-week commitment.
    Your contribution will be acknowledged in the History section of the web site and will constitute a significant reference in your curriculum vitae.
