Internships: Where you get all of the stress of working but with far fewer benefits. However, Japanese web developer Technomobile is taking a different, far more relaxing approach to interning. The Tokyo-based company is looking for what it calls “beer interns.” It’s not quite as awesome as it sounds, but the concept is still far cooler than any internship that requires you to grab the boss’s dry cleaning (which is to say, most internships).
Sadly, as a “beer intern” you don’t get to swap out your desk for a kegerator, but you’re not stuck serving pints to demeaning full-time staffers either. Instead, the beer internship program is a two-day event where beer interns hang out at the Technomobile offices for the afternoon, drink a beer and tackle an assignment. The idea is that the opportunity gives prospective employees a chance to check out the atmosphere of the company and assess their potential compatibility with a bit of brew to help ease any tension. According to RocketNews24, if things go well, applicants may be offered a full-time gig working as a programmer, infrastructure engineer or system engineer.
