This Beer Internship That Would Have Surely Ruined My Life Looks Awesome

World Of Beer Tavern is tossing their hat into the ring for the most absurd internship competition with what they’re calling the “Drink It Intern” opportunity. If you’re over 21, like beer and not a total embarrassment on social media, you might have what it takes to travel the world drinking and documenting it.

From their application page: “We’re recruiting three Drink it Interns to hit the road this summer and search out the best craft beer and food the world has to offer. We’ll send you down the street and around the world to capture the best beer stories and document them by blogging, capturing video, taking photos, Facebooking, Tweeting, sharing Vines, Periscoping, and anything else you think would be awesome to help tell the tale.”

So they’re looking for three pieces of basic millennial scum to do awesome shit all summer and brag about it on social media. I feel like this would have been more entertaining than my generic political science internship (shoutout to Kay Bailey Hutchison), but there’s no way college me would have handled this in a professional manner.

What they’re look for:

•People who are all about exploring and sharing their experience with their friends
•Social media nuts who are always snapping photos of beer and food to share on social media
•People who are passionate about beer and always looking to learn more
•Creative types like photographers, bloggers, videographers, or simply really awesome Tweeters
•Friendly folk who love meeting new people, sharing stories with strangers, and catching up over a beer
•Outgoing personalities who can talk to anyone and carry the conversation
•Travelers who love to hit the road every chance they get

Maybe it’s just me, but it sounds like they’re looking for trust fund hipsters that routinely pollute your feed with spontaneous vacations that leave you wondering “How do they afford these trips on entry level salaries?” I’m guessing that an ideal candidate would tell you about a dope new organic/free range/non-GMO/local IPA and then make you take a clearly staged photo of it. What an asshole.

What you must be willing to do:

•Learn all you can about beer!
•Try new things
•Write blog entries, take photos and video, Tweet, Vine, Instagram, Facebook, or all of the above
•Travel to domestic and international locations to meet brewers and attend beer festivals
•Be on camera and share your story with WOB fans across the country
•Have an AWESOME time trying AMAZING BEER in ENVY WORTHY locations

Translation: Have basic knowledge of WordPress functionality, never miss an episode of “Parts Unknown,” be kinda hot and willing to power through category 5 hangovers to blog. This basically rules out anyone over the age of 27.

How to impress them:

•Sharing your awesome beer pics
•Telling us about your favorite brewery or beer festival visit to demonstrate your passion for beer
•Showing us your outgoing personality
•Letting us see the real you!

So this has to be the guy they’re looking for, right? I mean, just look at the guy.

Yep, that’s the dude. I’m tuning in daily to see what kind of damage this kid does on an international beer tour. If you’re looking to make a career move that will end with you face down in a drained pool somewhere, please apply and document the process for us.
