HoboTraveler.com University Student Interns

I am offering internships to University Students.

Me, Andy the HoboTraveler.com trying to get a little girl to kiss me in Laos on the Mekong River, this is my life,
“a life less ordinary.”

I have been slow to admit this, however I cannot avoid reality. They asked Paul Theroux if he was a Travel Writer, he says,
“No, I am a writer that travels.”

I can accept that phrase; I do not mind being called a writer.

It makes me weak to say,
“Travel Writer.”

It makes me cringe to say,

I am not encouraged with the term,
“Travel Journalist.”

I will stick with the master, Paul Theroux, and say,
“I am a writer that travels.”

Nonetheless, I cannot deny it, I am part of the media, whatever you call me, and I am one or more of these terms above. HoboTraveler.com is a business, soon HoboTraveler.com will celebrate it 10-year anniversary as an Internet site. I registered the domain name in January of 2000.

Member of Travel Webmaster Group
I have joined a group of 10-20 travel webmasters, I think the membership criteria in a nutshell is
“Travel Webmasters that make money.”
Hmm, maybe I need to chunk this down, they make money from advertising. They do not earn money making web pages; the actual pages make money, the same as a newspaper. This sounds strange, but only about 1 in 10,000 people can do this.

This group is great, one of the interesting things I have learned is two or three of them have University Interns working 15 hours per week for them. As I understand, these students earn college credits for helping. More or less my colleges offer students the chance to get real life experience, this is a win win situation, the student learn, while the webmasters are able to expand their earning base, and maybe these students become future employees.

I have thought about allowing wanna-be Hobos to travel with me for years.
Wanna-be Photographers
Wanna-be Writers
Wanna-be Travel Webmasters
Wanna-be Travelers

However, this could be a little too intense for me, or them, I am not sure many of them could hang with sitting around in Port-au-Prince, Haiti.

These Webmaster friends contact local colleges, I believe the Journalism, Communications departments. (This makes me weak)

What I am saying, I am offering Internships to University Students. Do you know a Journalism Major, Communications, Computer, Computer Artist, or Anthropology Student?

Please send this link to the Student.

The fun stuff, many of these students perform task, like editing pages…updating Twitter, Facebook, writing Press Releases, the story behind this story.
