Paul Stamatiou: Yahoo Blogging Intern
Posted on June 23, 2006Paul Stamatiou has landed a blog internet gig with Yahoo. Paul initially thought the offer from Yahoo was spam.
Good thing he didn't delete it. Problogger predicts that indirect career opportunities for bloggers will increase in 2006.A few weeks ago I was contacted by Yahoo! through my website. At first I just thought it was another piece of spam, but out of curiousity I replied to the email. Sure enough, the response I got did not contain a spoofed email header and seemed to be legit. Yahoo! wanted to let me know about a new internship opening. After several phone calls, dozens of emails and a pile of paper work, everything has worked out. This Friday I will be heading to Sunnyvale, California to work for Yahoo! as a Blogger Intern. I can't exactly say what I'll be doing yet, but I'll be sure to give you guys the link to whatever I'm working on over there. As for what's going to happen on this front, I will still be blogging here with the time that I find after work. But until I find my bearings, posting here might be erratic at best.
