I actually saw this posting a couple of months ago, but I won't be in the US until the beginning of July. The posting said the internship should start in May. Is it worth applying for a short internship in July and August?

I'm not going to apply - this isn't my field of interest - but I want to say thanks to Tor for doing the right think and offering proper compensation to interns, not just nebulous "experience".

I have digital marketing experience and a deep and abiding passion for science fiction and fantasy. But I'm graduating with my bachelor's degree this semester, without immediate plans of returning for another degree.

Should I apply anyway?

I think you need to have a returning semseter but I'm not 100% sure. I would contact our HR department and ask them.

Just wanted to say thank you to everyone at Tor.com for offering this experience. Seriously, so many companies either don't offer internships or pay so little that interns can't afford to work there. Tor.com (as in everything they do) tosses this standard aside and makes their own level of awesome. You all rock!

Best wishes,

A.Z. Anthony

I'll echo the thanks of the previous commenters. Payment is not what I look for in internships, thought it is a nice bonus to the internship--I'm grateful that Tor.com is opening up the Flatiron office to students who, like me, love sci-fi/fantasy. Or should I say, I'm grateful they're opening up the entry ramp to Stubby the Rocket, which just happens to pass through the Flatiron.
