We recently launched the new site www.EcoHomeResource.com. The site is dedicated to helping people create healthy home & work environments through inspiration and education.

I am looking for a person with great research and writing skills to contribute quality content to the site. The site is fully multi-media and can handle audio and video files and images. Having the ability to edit audio and video files is a plus.

The position is a non-paid internship. It is great for experience and the opportunity to have your quality writing featured on a respected environmental resource (afterall, it is one of the few growth industies right now). Also, it provides an opportunity for college credit if you are in school.

You will be needed 2-3 days per week. Specific days and hours are flexible. Offices are in Beverly Hills.

If you are interested, in your email response, please indicate why you think you would be a good candidate for the position. Thank you for your interest!
* Compensation: Non-paid internship

You know folks, no one ever asks janitors to work for free. Or crane operators. Or tow truck drivers…and especially not 3 days per week.
