Customer Support & Editorial Internship (Summer 2017)
Cards Against Humanity is looking for summer interns to join the customer service team. To apply, send your resume and a non–academic writing sample to Maria@
Cards Against Humanity is a small independent game company with big dreams but potatoes for hands. We receive a lot of email from fans and customers, and we're looking for an intern to help us answer it all. Your main responsibility will be talking to fans in a helpful, delightful way. You'll work on a team and handle lost orders, website errors, and general customer service. You'll help us pull off stunts and pranks, like the time we dug a hole in the ground, or sold poop.
You have to enjoy helping people (particularly angry people) and making their day. You'll get to work in a collaborative environment where interesting projects spring up and require that someone learn how to fix our stupid printer again or send care packages.
Most importantly, you should be kind, humble, eager to work hard, and excited to learn. If you think you're already the funniest writer ever, this internship isn't for you. We'll only hire interns who welcome constructive feedback on their writing, and want to learn more about comedy from us.
Please apply only if you are:
- A current college sophomore, junior, or senior. Sorry, no freshmen or high school students.
- Currently studying journalism, English, writing, or other writing‐
The ideal candidate will:
- Be flexible and enjoy helping people.
- Have impeccable writing, grammar, and proofreading skills.
- Have a good attitude and sense of humor. This has nothing to do with writing jokes or doing stand‐up comedy. Rather, it means you can stay patient and polite while answering an angry customer email or working through a tricky problem.
- Live in Chicago, IL for the summer.
You'll work both remotely and in our office as your class schedule permits. This could be a full‐time or part‐time position at $15 an hour, we generally expect 20–30 hours/week. We're happy to help you receive college course credit.
To give you an idea of what you'll be doing, here are some sample emails we've sent over the years:
