Wu-Tang needs an intern

  • “We need you to go get us coffee and cigarettes.”

Our days of trolling Craigslist for internships are happily over (or suspended, at least), but we were momentarily tempted to throw it all away, pack it in and trek to Shaolin Island yesterday when the internet pointed us to a once-in-a-lifetime internship opportunity with Wu-Tang Management.

The Craigslist posting is sorely lacking in Wu humor (“wumor”?), but at least there are no ridiculous required qualifications like being an expert swordsman or battle rapper. It does offer this rather cursory history of the Wu and their management company:

Wu-Tang Management is a multi-faceted independent management company that was established in 1993 with our headquarters in Staten Island New York. After the tremendous international success of the first group released, the famed Wu-Tang Clan, we have gone down in history as the only management company to manage the entire Wu-Tang Clan, and in doing so, brought them from being a local group to international super stars. We have a very active schedule so there are numerous opportunities to be involved in. Duties vary greatly according to current priorities. The below listed tasks describe possible duties for open positions in Marketing and Promotions department; we also have a video production department and a radio station. We’re only looking for serious, hardworking and ambitious candidates who work well with others and have a love for music or the entertainment industry in general.

The required skills and daily responsibilities are similarly unexciting, though we imagine the office atmosphere will be truly unique. Something, perhaps, like this:

You should apply, and then tell us all about it.
