Become Our Photo Slave

Do you like words and pictures? You may already have the skills necessary to become our Flickr intern, or “FlickntRn.”

We upload tons of pictures to Flickr and we want a dedicated person to help manage the account. If you know your way around Flickr pretty well, and love to tag and describe things, send a brief note, 5-sentences max, to on why you’re perfect for the job.

No resumes or attachments, please, they will be deleted sight unseen. — BEN POPKEN

    Consumerist: Check your link on the phrase
    uploads tons of pictures to Flickr“.
    You’re missing the h in http.

    Also… these photos don’t seem very… consumery?

  3. Buran says:

    If it came with benefits, sure, I’d apply. But “slave” implies you want something for nothing. How is that consumer-friendly?

  4. B says:

    @Buran: It’s very consumer friendly, just not worker friendly.

    @ Buran: Note that the call is for an “intern.” While you may not find it in a thesaurus, I have it on high authority that “slave” is an appropriate synonym for “intern.”

  6. Buran says:

    @ajn007: Says “slave” in huge bold letters above that, though.

    Nice to see that at least people who expect the world to do them a favor for free actually tell that much of the truth.

    Why not create a fun and interesting game to help accomplish the goal of image tagging? Possibly something everyone can enjoy?

    Would Fastr or Google Image Labeler flip the bill?

    Damn, you beat me to it!

    Fight the flood, Chuck E. Cheese want’s you! The revolution is nigh.

    Email me when you get around to it. Peace.
